Mountain Point Elementary

Summary:

Mountain Point Elementary is a public elementary school located in Bluffdale, Utah, serving 773 students in grades K-6. The school is part of the Jordan School District, which is ranked 49 out of 100 districts in the state and has a 3-star rating.

While Mountain Point Elementary has a higher percentage of Hispanic students (15.65%) compared to the surrounding schools, it lacks significant racial diversity, with over 74% of its students being white. This is in contrast to nearby schools like Ignite Entrepreneurship Academy and Preschool, which have more diverse student populations. Academically, the school's performance, as measured by RISE test scores, is generally lower than the surrounding schools and the Jordan District and Utah state averages across all grade levels.

The school's statewide ranking has fluctuated over the past few years, ranging from 316 out of 561 Utah elementary schools in 2022-2023 (2 out of 5 stars) to 391 out of 551 in 2021-2022 (1 out of 5 stars), placing it in the bottom half of Utah elementary schools. Additionally, Mountain Point Elementary has a relatively low percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 15.89% to 18.53% over the past three years, which is lower than the surrounding schools. This suggests that the school may serve a more affluent population, which could be a contributing factor to its academic performance.

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.
