Middle Schools in Piper-Kansas City


Summary:

The Piper-Kansas City school district has only one middle school, Piper Middle, which serves grades 6-8 and has a total enrollment of 708 students. Piper Middle has a diverse student population, with over 45% of students identifying as racial minorities. However, the school's academic performance has been mixed, with test scores in English Language Arts and Mathematics falling below the district and state averages, except for a higher proficiency rate in 6th grade ELA.

Piper Middle's statewide ranking has dropped significantly in the past year, from 83rd out of 368 Kansas middle schools to 172nd out of 362, indicating a decline in the school's overall performance compared to its peers. The school's test score performance also shows an uneven pattern, with 6th grade students performing better than their 7th and 8th grade counterparts, suggesting potential issues with curriculum alignment or instructional practices. Additionally, over a quarter of Piper Middle students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, suggesting the school serves a population with higher levels of economic disadvantage.

Despite these challenges, Piper Middle's diverse student population and lower-than-average student-teacher ratio of 15.5 to 1 could present opportunities for the school to address the unique needs of its learners and foster a more inclusive learning environment. Further investigation into the school's curriculum, instructional strategies, and support for economically disadvantaged students could help identify areas for improvement and ultimately enhance the academic outcomes for all Piper Middle students.
