Little Mill Middle School

Summary:

Little Mill Middle School is a public middle school located in Cumming, Georgia, serving 915 students in grades 6-8. The school is part of the highly-ranked Forsyth County School District, which is ranked 9th out of 201 districts in the state and has a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Little Mill Middle School consistently performs above the state and county averages in standardized test scores, particularly in Algebra I, where 98.7% of students were proficient or better in 2022-2023, compared to 62.5% in Forsyth County and 35.8% statewide. However, the school's performance in other subject areas, such as English Language Arts and Mathematics, is more mixed, with proficiency rates often below the county average. The school also has a predominantly white student population, with 72.9% of students identifying as white, in contrast to some nearby schools like Otwell Middle School and Lakeside Middle School, which have more diverse student populations.

While Little Mill Middle School has a relatively low percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch at 28.85%, this is significantly lower than some nearby schools, such as Gainesville Middle School West and South Hall Middle School, which have free and reduced lunch rates above 70%. This suggests the school may serve a more affluent student population, which could have implications for the resources and support available to students, as well as the school's ability to address the needs of economically disadvantaged students.

Open Quote The school facilities are clean and new with proper equipment, etc. The school staff are wonderful and accomodating. The teachers are great. The only thing we didn't like, is the hours. School starts too late and ends late. Close Quote

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.
