Logansport Junior High School

Summary:

Logansport Junior High School is a public middle school serving grades 7-8 in Logansport, Indiana, with an enrollment of 607 students for the 2022-2023 school year. The school faces several challenges that set it apart from the surrounding schools, including a more diverse student population, significantly lower test scores, high chronic absenteeism, and a high percentage of economically disadvantaged students.

Logansport Junior High School has a more diverse student population compared to nearby schools, with a higher percentage of Hispanic (45.8%) and Asian (2.64%) students. However, the school's test scores are significantly lower than the state averages in both English Language Arts and Math. For example, in 2022-2023, only 26.06% of students were proficient or better in ELA, compared to the state averages of 39.5% for 7th grade and 43.8% for 8th grade. In Math, only 11.51% of students were proficient or better, compared to the state averages of 32.9% for 7th grade and 31.4% for 8th grade. Additionally, Logansport Junior High School has a high chronic absenteeism rate, reaching 27.3% in the 2021-2022 school year, which is significantly higher than the nearby schools.

The school's performance has been declining over the years, as evidenced by its decreasing statewide ranking from 252 out of 470 Indiana middle schools in 2013-2014 to 379 out of 489 in 2022-2023. Its rating has also dropped from 2 stars to 1 star during this period. Logansport Junior High School's performance is significantly lower than the nearby schools, such as Northwestern Middle School and Carroll Junior High School, which have much higher test scores and better overall performance. The high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, 66.56% in the 2022-2023 school year, coupled with the high chronic absenteeism rate, suggests that Logansport Junior High School faces significant socioeconomic challenges that may be impacting student achievement.

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.
