Lakeview School

Summary:

Lakeview School is a small public high school serving grades 6-12 in Durham, North Carolina, with a predominantly African American student population of just 56 students. Despite its high per-student spending, Lakeview School consistently ranks among the lowest-performing high schools in the state, with significant achievement gaps for male students and those from low-income backgrounds.

Lakeview School's academic performance has been persistently low, with statewide rankings between 461 and 527 out of over 500 high schools over the past decade. Its test scores are significantly below the district and state averages across all subject areas and grade levels. This lack of correlation between funding and outcomes suggests that simply increasing resources may not be the sole solution to improving the school's performance. The school's small size and low student-teacher ratio could potentially be leveraged to implement more personalized and targeted interventions, but addressing the root causes of its underperformance will require a comprehensive approach.

While the nearby schools in the Durham Public Schools district also face challenges, some, like J.D. Clement Early College High School and City of Medicine Academy, have been able to achieve significantly higher academic performance, suggesting that there may be opportunities for Lakeview School to learn from and emulate the successful practices of its higher-performing counterparts.

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.
