Grand Caillou Middle School

Summary:

Grand Caillou Middle School is a public middle school in Houma, Louisiana, serving 318 students in grades 5-8. The school is part of the Terrebonne Parish school district, which is ranked 21 out of 114 districts in the state and has a 4-star rating.

Grand Caillou Middle School has a diverse student population, with a racial makeup that is more varied than many nearby schools. However, the school's academic performance, as measured by LEAP test scores, is generally lower than the Terrebonne Parish and Louisiana state averages. The school has consistently ranked in the bottom half of Louisiana middle schools, placing it in the 2-star category on the SchoolDigger rating system. While the school performs relatively well for Hispanic and African American students, it struggles with the performance of White, Native American, and multi-racial students.

Compared to nearby middle schools like Montegut Middle School and Lacache Middle School, Grand Caillou Middle School generally performs worse academically. Additionally, the school has a high percentage of students (77.04%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, suggesting a predominantly low-income population that may contribute to the school's academic challenges. The school's declining statewide ranking and inconsistent performance across grade levels are areas that warrant further investigation and targeted interventions to improve student outcomes.

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.
