Wilkinson Junior High School has maintained a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger over the past several years.

Wilkinson Junior High School stands out from surrounding schools in several key areas. The school has a significantly higher percentage of white students (77.26%) compared to nearby schools, which have more diverse student populations. Academically, Wilkinson Junior High consistently outperforms the Clay District and the state of Florida in standardized test scores, including 99% proficiency in EOC/Algebra 1 and 100% proficiency in EOC/Geometry. However, the school also faces challenges, such as a high chronic absenteeism rate ranging from 39.4% to 45.4%, which is significantly higher than nearby Lakeside Junior High School (28.4%) and Oakleaf Junior High (22.9%).

Another notable factor is Wilkinson Junior High School's exceptionally high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 99.6% to 100% in recent years. This is much higher than the surrounding schools, such as Lakeside Junior High School (43.1%) and Oakleaf Junior High (46.33%). Despite these challenges, Wilkinson Junior High School's strong academic performance suggests the school is providing a quality education to its predominantly low-income student population.

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.
