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.

Tilton Upper Middle School consistently ranks in the bottom quarter of Massachusetts elementary schools, with significantly below-average performance on MCAS assessments in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science. While the school's Hispanic and English Language Learner (ELL) students perform relatively better than the overall school, the White, Special Education, and Low Socioeconomic Status (SES) students perform significantly worse. Despite having a higher per-student spending and lower student-teacher ratio compared to the district, the school's academic performance remains a concern.

When compared to nearby schools in the Haverhill district, such as Silver Hill Elementary, Caleb Dustin Hunking School, and Bradford Elementary, Tilton Upper Middle School's performance is generally lower, with a higher percentage of students proficient or better in core academic subjects. The racial demographics of these nearby schools are also more diverse, suggesting that Tilton Upper Middle School may need to examine its instructional practices, curriculum, and support systems to better serve its diverse student population and improve overall 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.
