Marshfield High consistently outperforms the state average in MCAS Next Generation assessments for 10th grade students, with 76.85% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts, 69.88% in Mathematics, and 63.41% in Science - all significantly higher than the state averages.

Additionally, Marshfield High has a relatively low student-teacher ratio of 11.7, which is lower than the ratios of many nearby schools like Whitman Hanson Regional and Rockland Senior High.

While Marshfield High's academic performance and support for diverse learners are impressive, the school has a predominantly white student population, with 92.35% of students identifying as white in the 2022-2023 school year.

The school's spending per student has increased over the years, from $13,683 in 2018-2019 to $15,346 in 2020-2021, which may be contributing to its academic success. Overall, Marshfield High appears to be a high-performing school that is providing a quality education to its students, but the lack of racial diversity may be an area for further exploration and improvement.

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.
