Glencoe High School

Summary:

Glencoe High School is a public high school serving 285 students in grades 9-12 in Glencoe, Alabama, which is part of the Etowah County School District. While the school has consistently ranked in the top half of Alabama high schools, its academic performance has declined in recent years, dropping from a 4-star to a 3-star rating.

One of Glencoe High School's strengths is its performance for students from low socioeconomic status (SES) backgrounds, ranking in the top 50 high schools in Alabama for this subgroup. However, the school's performance for White students and male students has been more average, ranking in the middle of the state. Additionally, the school's test scores in mathematics, science, and English language arts are generally below the state and county averages, except for science, where Glencoe High School outperforms the county. The school has also seen a significant increase in its free/reduced lunch rate, from around 30% to over 52%, indicating a growing population of economically disadvantaged students.

Compared to nearby schools, such as Southside High School and Hokes Bluff High School, which are also part of the Etowah County School District, Glencoe High School's performance is generally on par or slightly below. However, it outperforms the more distant Gaston High School and Gadsden City High School, which are in different districts. The school's leadership and community should consider these findings to develop strategies to address the school's challenges and build on its strengths.

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.
