Rutland High School

Summary:

Rutland High School is a public high school in Macon, Georgia, serving 907 students in grades 9-12. The school is part of the Bibb County School District, which is ranked 175 out of 201 districts in Georgia and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Rutland High School faces significant challenges compared to nearby schools. Its student population is more racially diverse, with higher percentages of White (27.56%) and Hispanic (17.31%) students. However, the school's test scores consistently lag behind the Bibb County and Georgia state averages, with only 19.4% of students proficient or better in American Literature, compared to 38.9% statewide. Rutland's four-year graduation rate of 80-82% is also lower than the state average. Despite higher spending per student, the school's performance trails nearby schools like Veterans High School in the Houston County district, which outperforms Rutland across all test score metrics and has a much higher graduation rate of 94.2%.

The challenges faced by Rutland High School may be rooted in factors beyond just funding, such as teacher quality, curriculum, and school leadership. Additionally, the high percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch (100%) across the Bibb County district suggests significant economic disadvantage in the student population, which may contribute to the school's struggles. While Rutland's diverse student body presents both opportunities and challenges, further investigation into the school's practices and resource allocation may be necessary to identify areas for improvement and help the school better serve its students.

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.
