Lone Peak School

Summary:

Lone Peak School is an elementary school located in Sandy, Utah, serving grades K-5 with a total enrollment of 580 students. It is part of the Canyons School District, which is ranked 26 out of 100 districts in Utah and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger. Lone Peak School has consistently been ranked among the top elementary schools in the state, with a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger for most of the past decade.

Lone Peak School significantly outperforms the Canyons District and the state of Utah in standardized test scores across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in 2022-2023, Lone Peak's 3rd-grade students scored 71.6% proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 53.4% for the Canyons District and 46.2% for the state. Similarly, in 5th-grade Math, Lone Peak's students scored 65.4% proficient or better, compared to 59.2% for the Canyons District and 45.3% for the state. However, the school has a relatively homogeneous student population, with 81.38% of students identifying as White, which is significantly higher than the racial diversity of some nearby schools, such as Alta View School (66.27% White) and Sprucewood School (77.12% White). Additionally, Lone Peak School has a low percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, at just 8.62% in the 2022-2023 school year, much lower than the surrounding schools, such as Willow Canyon School (20.51%), indicating a higher socioeconomic status of Lone Peak's student population.

Lone Peak School's consistent academic excellence and high-performing nature, combined with the lower-performing nearby schools, present an opportunity for collaboration and knowledge-sharing. The school could potentially serve as a model for best practices that could be implemented in other schools within the Canyons School District to help raise academic achievement across the region. However, the school's lack of racial diversity may be an area of concern, as research has shown that diverse learning environments can have positive impacts on student outcomes and prepare students for an increasingly diverse world.

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.
