Glasgow High School

Summary:

Glasgow High School is a public high school located in Newark, Delaware, serving grades 9-12 with a total enrollment of 895 students. The school is part of the Christina School District, which is ranked 15 out of 31 districts in Delaware and has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Glasgow High School consistently ranks among the lowest-performing high schools in Delaware, ranking 39th out of 39 high schools in the state for the 2022-2023 school year, with a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger. The school's academic performance is significantly below the state and district averages across various standardized tests, including SAT, DeSSA Science, and DeSSA Social Studies. For example, in 2022-2023, only 13.19% of 11th-grade students were proficient or better in SAT/English Language Arts, compared to the state average of 44.24%. Glasgow High School has a higher percentage of minority students, particularly African American and Hispanic, compared to nearby schools like Christiana High School and Newark High School. The lack of available free and reduced-price lunch data suggests that the school may serve a higher proportion of students from low-income families.

The analysis of Glasgow High School reveals a school that consistently underperforms academically compared to its peers, with a student population that is predominantly minority and likely from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds. These factors, combined with the school's persistent low rankings and test scores, suggest that Glasgow High School faces significant challenges in providing a high-quality education to its students. Addressing these challenges will require a comprehensive, multifaceted approach that addresses the root causes of the disparities observed.

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.
