Best Public Schools in Wakarusa, KS


The city of Wakarusa, Kansas has only one school in the data set - Pauline South Intermediate, a middle school serving grades 4-6 with a total enrollment of 299 students. The school is part of the Auburn Washburn school district, which is ranked 64th out of 269 districts in the state and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Pauline South Intermediate's academic performance, as measured by proficiency rates in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science, is significantly lower than the district and state averages across all grade levels. This suggests the school may be struggling to meet the academic needs of its students. The school serves a predominantly low-income student population, with 69.9% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, which could be a contributing factor to the lower academic performance. However, the school has a relatively diverse student population, with 33.44% of students being non-white.

Despite the school's higher spending per student of $10,168, which is above the state average, and a small student-teacher ratio of 10.5 to 1, Pauline South Intermediate's academic results remain concerning. Further investigation into the school's resource allocation, instructional practices, and targeted interventions for specific student subgroups could provide valuable insights to help improve the school's performance and better support the educational needs of its diverse student body.
