Enfield Middle S.T.E.A.M. Academy

Summary:

Enfield Middle S.T.E.A.M. Academy is a public middle school in Enfield, North Carolina, serving 210 students in grades 6-8. The school is part of the Halifax County Schools district, which is ranked 222 out of 243 districts in the state and has a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Enfield Middle S.T.E.A.M. Academy faces significant challenges, including a student population that is 89.05% African American, consistently low academic performance in the bottom 10-15% of North Carolina middle schools, and an extremely high percentage (98.57%) of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. Despite spending $14,324 per student, which is higher than the surrounding schools, the school's proficiency rates in mathematics, reading, and science remain significantly below the state and district averages. In comparison, nearby schools like West Edgecombe Middle, G.R. Edwards Middle, and Chaloner Middle School generally perform better academically and have more diverse student populations.

The consistent low performance, racial disparities, and socioeconomic challenges at Enfield Middle S.T.E.A.M. Academy suggest the need for a comprehensive, data-driven approach to address the root causes of the school's underperformance and provide targeted support to improve student outcomes. The higher spending per student at the school indicates that the funding may not be effectively utilized to support student learning, and a closer examination of resource allocation and instructional practices may be necessary to drive meaningful improvements.

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.
