Mitkof Middle School

Summary:

Mitkof Middle School is a public middle school serving grades 6-8 in Petersburg, Alaska, with a relatively small student population of 106 as of the 2022-2023 school year. The school is part of the Petersburg Borough School District, which is ranked 2nd out of 24 school districts in the state and has a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Mitkof Middle School consistently performs above the state average in academic assessments, including STAR/English Language Arts, STAR/Mathematics, and ASA/Science. In the 2022-2023 school year, the school's proficiency rates were 40.74% in STAR/ELA, 49.53% in STAR/Math, and 53.33% in ASA/Science, all of which were significantly higher than the state averages. The school's performance has been particularly strong in science, with 8th-grade proficiency rates reaching as high as 68% in 2021-2022, compared to the state average of 34.99%. Mitkof Middle School has also shown exceptional performance among specific student subgroups, particularly female students and students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, ranking among the top middle schools in Alaska for these subgroups.

While Mitkof Middle School has maintained strong academic performance, its statewide ranking has declined in recent years, from a high of 6th in 2018-2019 to 42nd in 2022-2023. This suggests that the school may be facing increased competition from other high-performing middle schools in the state, or that its relative performance has declined compared to other schools. The school's student population is predominantly White, with a significant Native American population and smaller percentages of other racial/ethnic groups, which may indicate a need to address diversity and inclusion efforts within the school. However, Mitkof Middle School's ability to support and engage students from disadvantaged backgrounds is a strength that could provide valuable insights for other schools.

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.
