Eben Hopson Middle School

Summary:

Eben Hopson Middle School is a public middle school located in Barrow, Alaska, serving grades 6-8 with a total enrollment of 247 students. The school is part of the North Slope Borough School District, which is ranked 24th out of 24 school districts in the state and has a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Eben Hopson Middle School has a unique racial makeup, with a majority of Native American students (around 65-68%) and a significant percentage of students of two or more races (around 14-17%). This is in contrast to the state's overall student population, which is predominantly White. The school consistently ranks among the lowest-performing middle schools in Alaska, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science significantly lower than the state and district averages. The performance of female, male, Native American, and low-socioeconomic status students is also among the lowest in the state.

Despite the relatively high per-student spending of $34,580 for the 2018-2019 school year, which is significantly higher than the state average, and a relatively low student-teacher ratio of around 14:1, Eben Hopson Middle School's academic outcomes do not seem to reflect the investment. This suggests a potential need to re-evaluate the effectiveness of resource allocation and utilization, as well as address the systemic challenges faced by the North Slope Borough School District.

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.
