Lumberton Junior

Summary:

Lumberton Junior is a public middle school in Lumberton, North Carolina, serving 707 students in grades 6-8. The school is part of the Public Schools of Robeson County district, which is ranked 218 out of 243 districts in the state and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Lumberton Junior consistently ranks in the bottom quartile of North Carolina middle schools, with academic performance significantly below state and district averages across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in 2022-2023, the percentage of students proficient or better in Mathematics ranged from 11.2% to 31.4%, compared to the state average of 44.8% to 52.3%. The school's diverse student population, with over 99% eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, may be a contributing factor to these low academic outcomes. Lumberton Junior also has a relatively high student-teacher ratio compared to nearby schools, which could further impact its ability to support the unique needs of its student body.

While the nearby middle schools in the Public Schools of Robeson County and Bladen County Schools districts also struggle academically, with most ranking in the bottom quartile of North Carolina middle schools, some schools like Pembroke Middle and Bladenboro Middle perform slightly better than Lumberton Junior, suggesting that factors beyond just district-level challenges may be contributing to the low performance at Lumberton Junior.

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.
