The school is part of the Farmington Public School District, which is ranked 318 out of 606 districts in the state and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Oakland FlexTech High School faces several challenges, including lower-than-average statewide rankings, with the school consistently ranking in the bottom half of Michigan high schools over the past several years. The school's performance varies across different student subgroups, with female students ranking 226 out of 611 Michigan high schools (3 stars) but male students ranking only 313 out of 611 (2 stars). The school's four-year graduation rate, ranging from 76.3% to 82.3% over the past five years, is lower than the state average, and its dropout rates have fluctuated, ranging from 3.9% to 12.5%, which is higher than the state average.

When compared to nearby high schools, such as Northville High School, which ranks 4th in the state and has a 98.9% four-year graduation rate, Oakland FlexTech High School generally performs worse on key metrics. The school's diverse student population and high percentage of economically disadvantaged students, with 49.25% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch in 2022-2023, may be contributing factors to its performance. To improve, the school may need to focus on addressing the specific needs of its student subgroups, improving attendance, and implementing targeted academic interventions.

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.
