Ronald McNair Magnet Middle School

Summary:

Ronald McNair Magnet Middle School is a public middle school located in Rockledge, Florida, serving grades 7-8 with a student population of 364. The school is part of the Brevard school district, which is ranked 17th out of 67 districts in Florida and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Ronald McNair Magnet Middle School consistently outperforms the Brevard and Florida state averages in several academic areas, including EOC/Algebra 1, EOC/Geometry, and EOC/Biology 1. The school also has a more racially diverse student population compared to the nearby schools, such as Herbert C. Hoover Middle School, Andrew Jackson Middle School, and Lyndon B. Johnson Middle School. However, the school has a significantly higher percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, suggesting it serves a more economically disadvantaged population.

Despite the school's strong academic performance, its statewide ranking has been declining over the years, and it has experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, which is notably higher than the nearby schools. The school's spending per student has also increased, which may be contributing to its academic success, but it will be important to ensure the resources are being used effectively to address the challenges the school is facing, such as the rising chronic absenteeism rates.

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.
