Swift Creek High School

Summary:

Swift Creek High School is a small public high school serving grades 9-12 in Afton, Wyoming, with a student population of just 62 as of the 2022-2023 school year. The school is part of the Lincoln County School District #2, which is ranked 6th out of 42 districts in the state and has a 4-star rating.

While Swift Creek High School has a higher percentage of white and Hispanic students compared to the nearby Star Valley High School, it consistently ranks lower in statewide academic performance. In the 2022-2023 school year, Swift Creek High School ranked 64th out of 80 Wyoming high schools, while Star Valley High School ranked 27th. This trend has been consistent over the past several years, with Swift Creek's test scores in English Language Arts and Science falling significantly below the district and state averages.

Additionally, Swift Creek High School has a higher percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (24.19%) compared to Star Valley High School (10.77%), indicating a higher proportion of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds. Despite this, Swift Creek High School has a higher per-student spending of $20,346 in the 2022-2023 school year, compared to $15,810 at Star Valley High School. This suggests that the school is investing more resources per student, but this has not translated into higher academic performance. The district may need to consider targeted interventions or additional resources to support the school's 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.
