Dr Paul Nettle

Summary:

Dr Paul Nettle is a public middle school located in Haverhill, Massachusetts, serving grades 5-8 with a student population of 570. The school is part of the Haverhill school district, which is ranked 289 out of 356 districts in Massachusetts and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Dr Paul Nettle has consistently ranked in the bottom half of Massachusetts middle schools, with its performance on MCAS Next Generation assessments significantly below the state and district averages across all grades and subjects. For example, in 2022-2023, only 24.72% of students were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 42.29% statewide and 28.05% in the Haverhill district. The school's performance is particularly low for Hispanic and White student subgroups, ranking in the bottom 25-30% of Massachusetts middle schools.

Despite the school's relatively high per-student spending of $15,827 in the 2020-2021 school year, it has a high student-teacher ratio of 16.9, which is significantly higher than the state average. This suggests potential challenges in providing individualized attention and support to students. The school's demographic composition, with a higher proportion of Hispanic and English Language Learner (ELL) students, coupled with its low academic performance, raises questions about potential equity and access issues for these student populations, especially when compared to nearby schools like John G Whittier and Consentino Middle Schools, which have a higher percentage of White students and better academic 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.
