Carmel Middle

Summary:

Carmel Middle is a public middle school in Charlotte, North Carolina, serving 1,076 students in grades 6-8. As part of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools district, Carmel Middle consistently outperforms the district and state averages in academic proficiency, with particularly strong results in Mathematics and Science. The school also has a more diverse student population compared to nearby schools, with a racial makeup of 51.02% White, 11.62% African American, 33.55% Hispanic, 2.04% Asian, and 1.77% two or more races.

While Carmel Middle's overall academic performance is strong, there are notable disparities in the performance of different racial subgroups. For example, the proficiency rates for White students are significantly higher than those for African American and Hispanic students across various subjects and grade levels. Additionally, Carmel Middle's statewide ranking and SchoolDigger star rating have declined over the past several years, from a ranking of 93 out of 627 schools and a 4-star rating in 2013-2014 to a ranking of 238 out of 784 schools and a 3-star rating in 2022-2023. This suggests that the school may be facing challenges in maintaining its high level of academic performance compared to other schools in the state.

Compared to nearby schools, Carmel Middle's academic performance is generally stronger, particularly in schools with higher percentages of economically disadvantaged students, such as Sedgefield Middle, Eastway Middle, and McClintock Middle. However, some schools, such as Jay M. Robinson Middle and Randolph Middle, have even higher academic proficiency rates and statewide rankings, indicating that there may be opportunities for Carmel Middle to learn from their practices and strategies.

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.
