Northside Middle School

Summary:

Northside Middle School is a public middle school located in Warner Robins, Georgia, serving grades 6-8 with a student population of 844. The school is part of the Houston County School District, which is ranked 65 out of 201 districts in Georgia and has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Northside Middle School stands out in several key areas. It has a significantly higher percentage of African American students (62.44%) compared to surrounding schools like Mossy Creek Middle School (23.68%) and Bonaire Middle School (57.56%). Additionally, Northside Middle School consistently outperforms the Houston County and Georgia state averages on the Algebra I End of Course exams, with 70.4% proficiency in 2022-2023 compared to 40.1% for Houston County and 35.8% for Georgia. However, the school has a very high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, at 83.89% in 2022-2023, significantly higher than the surrounding schools.

Despite Northside Middle School's strong performance on the Algebra I exam, the school's overall academic performance has declined in recent years, with its statewide ranking dropping from 267 out of 542 Georgia middle schools in 2020-2021 to 420 out of 577 in 2022-2023. This suggests that the school may be facing challenges in other areas that contribute to the overall school rating. Interestingly, the surrounding schools, such as Feagin Mill Middle School and Bonaire Middle School, consistently outperform Northside Middle School on the Milestones Assessments and have higher statewide rankings, indicating potential opportunities for Northside Middle School to learn from their practices and strategies.

Open Quote Have not been happy with this school. We have had problems with our last 2 and am now concerned for our youngest to go there in the fall. Too many fights, BULLYING, and teachers who don't care. :( 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.
