Monticello School

Summary:

Monticello School is an elementary school in Monticello, Utah, serving grades PK-6 with a total enrollment of 302 students. The school is part of the San Juan School District, which is ranked 83 out of 100 in the state and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. Despite some academic strengths, Monticello School has seen a decline in its statewide ranking over the past several years.

One key differentiator for Monticello School is its racial makeup, with a significantly higher percentage of White students (70.86%) compared to the nearby Blanding School (52.04%). Monticello also has a higher percentage of Native American students (7.62%) compared to Blanding (35.4%). Academically, Monticello outperforms the San Juan School District and the state of Utah in several areas, including higher proficiency rates in RISE English Language Arts and Mathematics. The school also ranks in the top 10 out of 132 Utah elementary schools for its performance with low socioeconomic status (SES) students.

Despite these strengths, Monticello School's statewide ranking has been declining, dropping from a high of 118 out of 572 Utah elementary schools in 2018-2019 to its current ranking of 354 out of 561 in 2022-2023. This suggests that while the school is performing well compared to the local district, it may be struggling to keep pace with the overall academic progress of other elementary schools in the state. Additionally, the significant difference in racial makeup between Monticello and Blanding School warrants further investigation, as it could be indicative of broader societal issues. Nonetheless, Monticello's exceptional performance with low SES students and its higher spending per student compared to Blanding School are notable strengths that could contribute to the school's continued improvement.

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.
