Kosciuszko School

Summary:

Kosciuszko School is a public middle school located in Hamtramck, Michigan, serving 326 students in grades 7-8. The school is part of the Hamtramck School District, which is ranked 555 out of 606 districts in Michigan and has a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Kosciuszko School has a diverse student population, with 50.31% White, 14.72% African American, 34.05% Asian, and 0.92% two or more races. However, the school's academic performance is significantly below the state averages across various subjects and grade levels. For example, in 2022-2023, only 20.4% of 7th-grade students were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to the state average of 36.9%. In math, only 13.3% of 7th-grade students were proficient or better, compared to the state average of 31%. The school has also experienced a concerning increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 19.7% in 2017-2018 to 45.0% in 2022-2023.

Kosciuszko School's academic performance is consistently lower than the nearby schools, including Lincoln Middle School, Detroit Academy of Arts and Sciences Middle School, and PD Chatterton Middle School. These schools also serve high-need populations but demonstrate better academic outcomes. Additionally, Kosciuszko School's performance has remained stagnant over the years, with little to no improvement in its statewide ranking or SchoolDigger star rating, suggesting that the school may be struggling to implement effective strategies to address the needs of its diverse student population.

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.
