Summary:

Woodbridge Middle School is a public middle school located in Bridgeville, Delaware, serving 598 students in grades 6-8. The school is part of the Woodbridge School District, which is ranked 19 out of 31 districts in the state and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Woodbridge Middle School has consistently underperformed compared to state averages on standardized tests, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics significantly below the state's. For example, in 2022-2023, the school's 6th grade ELA proficiency rate was 32.63%, compared to the state average of 35%. The school's mathematics proficiency rates were also much lower than the state averages across all grade levels. Woodbridge Middle School's statewide ranking has remained in the bottom third of Delaware middle schools in recent years, placing between 33rd and 43rd out of 52-53 schools. The school's performance on student subgroups is mixed, with African American and Hispanic students performing better than the overall school, but the White student subgroup and low-socioeconomic status students performing below average compared to their peers in the state.

When compared to nearby middle schools, such as Delmar Middle School, Millsboro Middle School, and Mariner Middle School, Woodbridge Middle School generally performs worse academically, with lower proficiency rates and statewide rankings. The school's relatively low student-teacher ratio, ranging from 13.9 to 15.3 students per teacher, suggests that it may have adequate resources, but these resources may not be effectively utilized to drive academic improvement. Addressing the school's challenges will require a comprehensive, data-driven approach to identify and address the root causes of its underperformance, as well as a focus on equitable educational opportunities for all students.

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.
