Maconaquah High School

Summary:

Maconaquah High School is a public high school located in Bunker Hill, Indiana, serving grades 9-12 with a student population of 594. The school is part of the Maconaquah School Corporation, which is ranked 214 out of 364 school districts in Indiana and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Maconaquah High School faces several challenges, including declining performance, high chronic absenteeism, and lower test scores compared to the state and nearby schools like Taylor High School, Oak Hill High School, and Eastern High School. The school's four-year graduation rates have dropped from 92.1% in 2019-2020 to 86.1% in 2022-2023, which is lower than the graduation rates of nearby schools. Additionally, Maconaquah High School's test scores in ILEARN/Biology and SAT are below the state averages, and the school has experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 21.0% in 2020-2021 to 28.9% in 2022-2023.

While Maconaquah High School has a higher percentage of white students (83.67%) compared to the nearby schools, it also has a relatively high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, at 52.19% in 2022-2023. This suggests that the school may need to focus on addressing the needs of its diverse student population and developing targeted strategies to improve overall academic outcomes. The school's administration and the Maconaquah School Corporation should closely examine these issues and work to reverse the declining performance trends observed in recent years.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

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.
