Lebanon Middle School

Summary:

Lebanon Middle School is a public middle school serving 807 students in grades 6-8 in Lebanon, Indiana, which is part of the Community Schools of Frankfort district.

While Lebanon Middle School has some positive attributes, such as a diverse student population and a focus on resource allocation, its academic performance lags behind many of the nearby higher-performing schools. The school's proficiency rates in English Language Arts (38.58%), Math (38.19%), and Science (41.53%) are all below the state averages, and it has seen a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, from 3.4% in 2020-2021 to 15.4% in 2022-2023. In comparison, nearby schools like Brownsburg East Middle School and Creekside Middle School have much higher proficiency rates and lower chronic absenteeism.

Lebanon Middle School's higher spending per student and lower student-teacher ratio compared to some nearby schools may suggest a focus on providing more resources and individualized attention to students. However, this does not seem to be translating into significantly better academic outcomes. The school's performance on the state's ILEARN assessments has been somewhat inconsistent over the years, with its statewide ranking fluctuating between 112 and 198 out of 444-494 Indiana middle schools. Addressing the issues of chronic absenteeism and improving overall academic outcomes should be key priorities for the school and the district.

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.
