Saratoga Elementary

Summary:

Saratoga Elementary is a public elementary school located in Saratoga, Wyoming, serving 187 students in grades K-6. The school is part of the Carbon County School District #2, which is ranked 25 out of 42 districts in the state and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Saratoga Elementary has shown mixed academic performance compared to the state and district averages. While the school's 4th grade Science proficiency rates have been consistently higher than the district and state, its 3rd-6th grade English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics proficiency rates have been more variable, sometimes outperforming and sometimes underperforming the district and state. The school has demonstrated strong performance for its special education and disabled student subgroups, ranking 7th and 1st out of all Wyoming elementary schools, respectively, in the 2022-2023 school year. However, the school's performance for its low socioeconomic status (SES) student subgroup has been more variable.

Saratoga Elementary has a predominantly white student population, with over 86% of students identifying as white in the past three school years. The school has a relatively low percentage of students from minority racial/ethnic backgrounds, with Hispanic students making up the largest minority group at around 9-10% of the student population. The school has a relatively low student-teacher ratio and high per-student spending, suggesting access to significant resources, but the efficiency and effectiveness of these resource allocations in terms of their impact on student learning outcomes and overall school performance would be important to evaluate.

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.
