Moorcroft Secondary School

Summary:

Moorcroft Secondary School is a public high school serving grades 7-12 in Moorcroft, Wyoming, with a total enrollment of 294 students. The school is part of the Crook County School District #1, which is ranked 20 out of 42 districts in the state and has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Moorcroft Secondary School has a predominantly white student population, with 91.5% of students identifying as white, significantly higher than the state average and the nearby Upton High School, which has a 94.52% white student population. The school's academic performance has been mixed, with fluctuations in its statewide ranking and varying proficiency rates on standardized tests. However, Moorcroft Secondary School has performed exceptionally well in supporting low socioeconomic status (SES) students, ranking among the top schools in Wyoming for this subgroup.

While the school has seen a decrease in its student-teacher ratio and an increase in per-student spending, these changes have not yet translated into consistently improved academic outcomes. Additionally, the school has experienced a decline in racial diversity, with the percentage of non-white students decreasing from 6.59% in 2021-2022 to 3.21% in 2020-2021. As Moorcroft Secondary School continues to evolve, it will be crucial for the school to address these challenges and leverage its strengths to provide a high-quality education for all students.

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.
