CIS Academy


CIS Academy is the sole public charter middle school serving grades 6-8 in Pembroke, North Carolina, with a total enrollment of 113 students. This unique school stands out for its predominantly Native American student population, comprising 91.15% of the student body, which is significantly higher than the state average.

Academically, CIS Academy has a mixed performance, with mathematics proficiency rates below the state average, while reading and science proficiency are more in line with or slightly better than the state. The school is ranked 422 out of 784 North Carolina middle schools and has consistently been rated 2 out of 5 stars by SchoolDigger. However, the school's lower student-teacher ratio of 13 may be a strength, potentially allowing for more individualized attention and support for students. Additionally, the high percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, at 62.83%, suggests that the school serves a population facing significant economic challenges.

Overall, CIS Academy presents a unique educational environment, with a focus on serving a predominantly Native American student population in an economically disadvantaged area. While the school has some areas of strength, such as its student-teacher ratio, its academic performance suggests opportunities for improvement, particularly in mathematics. Further investigation into the school's specific challenges and strategies for addressing them could provide valuable insights for supporting the success of similar schools serving underrepresented student populations.
