Summary:

Joaquin Moraga Intermediate is a highly-rated public middle school serving grades 6-8 in the affluent suburb of Moraga, California. This exceptional school consistently ranks among the top middle schools in the state, with a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger and exceptional academic performance across diverse student groups.

Joaquin Moraga Intermediate's academic excellence is evident in its consistent statewide ranking between the 23rd and 65th percentile among over 2,700 middle schools. The school's diverse student population, which has become more racially mixed in recent years, has not hindered its ability to support the success of all learners, including Hispanic, low-income, and special education students. In fact, Joaquin Moraga Intermediate ranks in the top 10-25% of California middle schools for these subgroups, a testament to the school's commitment to equity and inclusion.

When compared to nearby urban schools in the Oakland Unified district, Joaquin Moraga Intermediate's academic performance and student outcomes are significantly stronger, highlighting the disparities in educational opportunities between suburban and urban communities. However, the school's proximity to other high-performing middle schools, such as Piedmont Middle and M.H. Stanley Middle, which also serve affluent communities, may provide opportunities for collaboration and the sharing of best practices.

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.
