Evergreen Junior High School

Summary:

Evergreen Junior High School is a public middle school located in Houma, Louisiana, serving grades 7-8 with a total enrollment of 699 students. The school is part of the Terrebonne Parish school district, which is ranked 21 out of 114 districts in Louisiana and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Evergreen Junior High School faces several challenges, including declining academic performance, achievement gaps among student subgroups, and a high percentage of students from low-income families. The school's proficiency rates in Mathematics (51%), English Language Arts (71%), and Social Studies (47%) are all below the district and state averages, and its rankings for specific student subgroups, such as African American, Hispanic, and Multi-racial students, are generally lower than the overall school ranking. Additionally, Evergreen Junior High School has a relatively high percentage of students (63.23%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, which suggests that socioeconomic factors may be contributing to the school's academic challenges. In comparison, nearby schools like Houma Junior High School have higher proficiency rates and a higher statewide ranking.

To address these issues, the school and district may need to implement targeted interventions, such as additional academic support, professional development for teachers, and community engagement initiatives, to improve student outcomes and close the performance gaps. By addressing the challenges faced by Evergreen Junior High School, the school and district can work towards providing a high-quality education for all students in the community.

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.
