Navarre Middle School

Summary:

Navarre Middle School is a public middle school located in South Bend, Indiana, serving grades 6-8 with a student population of 519. The school is part of the South Bend Community School Corporation, which is ranked 307 out of 364 districts in Indiana and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Navarre Middle School consistently performs significantly below state and district averages on ILEARN assessments in English Language Arts, Math, and Science. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, only 6.97% of Navarre students were proficient or better in ELA, compared to 20.01% for the South Bend district and 40.8% statewide for 6th grade. Navarre also has extremely high chronic absenteeism rates, reaching 53.2% in the 2022-2023 school year, significantly higher than the district average. However, Navarre has a more diverse student population compared to some nearby schools, with a higher percentage of African American (43.74%) and Hispanic (39.88%) students. Additionally, 83.43% of Navarre students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage.

While Navarre Middle School and other nearby South Bend Community School Corporation middle schools struggle with low academic performance and high chronic absenteeism, there are some notable differences. For example, Jefferson Traditional School and LaSalle Academy, also in the South Bend district, perform significantly better on academic measures. This suggests that factors beyond just district-level policies may be at play. The significant increase in per-student spending at Navarre Middle School over the past few years indicates a recognition of the need for additional resources and support, but the continued low academic performance suggests that a more comprehensive, evidence-based approach to school improvement may be necessary.

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.
