Salt Lake Center for Science Education Bryant

Summary:

Salt Lake Center for Science Education Bryant is a public middle school in Salt Lake City, Utah, serving 407 students in grades 7-8. The school is part of the Salt Lake District, which is ranked 46 out of 100 districts in the state and has a 3-star rating.

While the school has a higher percentage of Hispanic students (45.7%) compared to the state average for middle schools (around 20%), it consistently ranks in the bottom half of Utah middle schools, with a ranking between 171-199 out of 209-222 schools in recent years. The school's proficiency rates in RISE assessments for English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science are significantly lower than the state and district averages, often by 10-20 percentage points. Additionally, over 60% of the students receive free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population.

Compared to nearby schools like Hillside Middle, Clayton Middle, and Wasatch Junior High, which have significantly higher academic performance and statewide rankings, Salt Lake Center for Science Education Bryant faces significant challenges. These higher-performing schools have a lower percentage of economically disadvantaged students and a higher percentage of White students. The school's low ranking for Hispanic and English Language Learner (ELL) students suggests that it may need to focus on supporting the academic needs of its diverse student population.

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.
