Washtenaw International Middle Academy

Summary:

Washtenaw International Middle Academy is a public middle school located in Ypsilanti, Michigan, serving grades 6-8 with a total enrollment of 192 students. The school stands out as a relatively high-performing institution within the Ypsilanti Community Schools district, consistently outperforming the district and state averages in academic assessments.

One of the key factors that differentiates Washtenaw International Middle Academy is its racial diversity, with a student population that is 40.1% White, 29.17% African American, 14.58% Hispanic, and 2.6% Asian. This diversity is notable compared to the surrounding schools. Additionally, the school has a higher statewide ranking and rating, placing 319 out of 883 Michigan middle schools and receiving a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger. However, the school faces a concerning trend of increasing chronic absenteeism, rising from 5.7% in 2019-2020 to 57.5% in 2022-2023, which requires further investigation and targeted interventions.

While Washtenaw International Middle Academy outperforms the nearby Ypsilanti Community Middle School in academic assessments, it lags behind higher-performing schools in the Ann Arbor Public Schools district, such as Forsythe Middle School and Slauson Middle School, which consistently rank among the top middle schools in the state. Additionally, the school's high percentage of students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, with 43.23% qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, suggests that it may face additional challenges in supporting student learning and achievement.

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.
