Park Lane School

Summary:

Park Lane School is an exceptional elementary school located in Sandy, Utah, serving 343 students in grades K-5. The school is part of the Canyons District, which is ranked 26 out of 100 districts in the state and has a 4-star rating.

Park Lane School consistently outperforms the Canyons District and the state of Utah in standardized test scores across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, 85.2% of 5th-grade students were proficient or better in RISE/English Language Arts, compared to 61.3% in the Canyons District and 49% statewide. The school has also consistently ranked among the top elementary schools in Utah, with a ranking of 17 out of 561 schools in the 2022-2023 school year and a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger. This places Park Lane School in the top 3% of elementary schools in the state. However, the school's racial composition is significantly different from nearby schools, with a much higher percentage of White students (84.26%) and lower percentages of minority students. Additionally, Park Lane School has a relatively low percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (19.83%), which is lower than the nearby schools and the state average.

The consistent academic excellence at Park Lane School suggests that the school has effective teaching practices, a strong curriculum, and a supportive learning environment that enables students to excel. However, the school's racial composition and socioeconomic factors raise important questions about equity and access that warrant further investigation and consideration. When compared to nearby schools, such as Brookwood School, Silver Mesa School, and Glacier Hills Elementary, it is clear that Park Lane School outperforms them academically, particularly in terms of standardized test scores and statewide rankings.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
