Muir School

Summary:

Muir School is an elementary school in Bountiful, Utah, serving 670 students in grades K-6 as part of the Davis School District, which is ranked 34 out of 100 in the state and has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger. Muir School has consistently maintained a 4-star rating, indicating it is a high-performing school within the district.

Muir School stands out for its strong academic performance, consistently outperforming the Davis District and state averages in RISE assessments across all grade levels. For example, in 2022-2023, Muir School's 3rd-grade ELA proficiency rate was 59.2%, compared to the district's 52.5% and the state's 46.2%. The school has also maintained a statewide ranking between the top 25-30% of Utah elementary schools over the past several years, with a peak ranking of 61 out of 537 schools in 2014-2015. However, Muir School has a relatively low percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 9.61% to 10.15% over the past three years, indicating a lower proportion of economically disadvantaged students compared to nearby schools like Valley View and Oak Hills.

While Muir School's academic performance is impressive, the school's student population is significantly less diverse, with over 90% of students identifying as white, compared to the more diverse student populations at nearby schools. Additionally, Muir School has a slightly higher student-teacher ratio (23.9-25.1) compared to the nearby schools, which range from 21.3 to 26.2, potentially presenting challenges in providing individualized attention and support to students. Overall, Muir School appears to be a high-performing elementary school, but its demographic and resource allocation differences compared to nearby schools may warrant further exploration.

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.
