Brogden Middle

Summary:

Brogden Middle is a public middle school in Durham, North Carolina, serving 742 students in grades 6-8. The school is part of the Durham Public Schools district, which is ranked 140 out of 243 districts in the state and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Brogden Middle faces significant academic challenges, consistently ranking in the bottom quartile of North Carolina middle schools over the past decade. The school has a high percentage of Hispanic (41.64%) and African American (41.11%) students, as well as an extremely high rate (over 99%) of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a concentration of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds. Brogden Middle's performance on state assessments is significantly lower than the district and state averages across all grade levels and subject areas, and the school's statewide ranking has steadily declined over the past 10 years. In contrast, nearby schools like Sherwood Githens Middle and Lakewood Montessori Middle have significantly higher academic performance and statewide rankings, despite serving similar student populations.

The challenges at Brogden Middle extend beyond just overall academic performance. The school struggles with significant achievement gaps, with White students performing at or above the state average while African American and Hispanic students consistently score well below their peers. Additionally, Brogden Middle's low rankings for English Language Learners and students with disabilities suggest that the school may be struggling to effectively support the unique needs of these student populations. Addressing these issues will be crucial for improving educational outcomes for the students at Brogden Middle.

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.
