Maze Middle

Summary:

Maze Middle is a public middle school located in Hollister, California, serving grades 6-8 with a total enrollment of 452 students. The school has a diverse student population, with a majority Hispanic student body (86.28% in 2022-2023), and is part of the Hollister District, which is ranked 967 out of 1,560 districts in California and is rated 2 stars out of 5 by SchoolDigger.

Maze Middle's academic performance, as measured by standardized test scores, is significantly lower than the Hollister district and the state of California averages. In the 2022-2023 school year, the percentage of students proficient or better in English Language Arts (ELA) ranged from 32.21% to 33.91% across grade levels, compared to the Hollister district average of 35.49% and the California average of 46.66%. In Mathematics, the proficiency rates at Maze Middle ranged from 11.76% to 17.45%, significantly lower than the Hollister district average of 23.93% and the California average of 34.62%. Additionally, Maze Middle has experienced a concerning trend of high chronic absenteeism rates, reaching 34.4% in the 2022-2023 school year, which is significantly higher than the state average.

When comparing Maze Middle to other nearby schools, such as Accelerated Achievement Academy, a school within the same district, the latter consistently outperforms Maze Middle and the Hollister district in both ELA and Mathematics proficiency rates. This suggests that there may be successful practices or approaches at Accelerated Achievement Academy that could be replicated at Maze Middle. Additionally, Maze Middle's performance has declined over the years, with its statewide ranking dropping from 1,067 out of 2,259 California middle schools in 2010-2011 to 1,957 out of 2,788 in 2022-2023, indicating the need for a comprehensive review of the school's practices and implementation of targeted interventions to address the declining academic outcomes.

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.
