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.

Open Quote Mint Hill Middle is a really good school and I'm very grateful I go here because I know a lot of kids wish they went here and unfortunately, they can't. Teachers here teach us really well except for some teachers may show favoritism and things like that but oh well, their loss. It's too bad Mint Hill doesn't get alot of money needed for textbooks and things like that because we need it and I hope this school is seen as amazing and such a safe place. We also have not had safety issues here or violent matters the three years I have been here. I honestly love it here and my parents like the type of discipline and opportunities we get here. The incentives are very rewarding and we have so much fun here when allowed! The electives are also really great. For example I take advanced Chorus and we get to do things other schools might not be able to, like we are having a choral contest at Wingate and we are planning to go caroling at nursing homes around December.

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.
