Red Springs Middle

Summary:

Red Springs Middle is a public middle school in Red Springs, North Carolina, serving 596 students in grades 5-8. 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.

Red Springs Middle faces significant challenges, with a student population that is predominantly Hispanic (39.6%) and Native American (29.19%), well above the state averages. The school consistently ranks in the bottom quartile of North Carolina middle schools, with a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger for the past several years. Its proficiency rates in Mathematics, Reading, and Science are well below the state and district averages, particularly for Native American, Hispanic, and low-income students. Despite spending $9,042 per student, which is slightly higher than the state average, the school's academic outcomes remain poor.

While other nearby schools in the Public Schools of Robeson County district also struggle with low performance, some schools in other districts, such as John R. Griffin Middle and New Century International Middle, demonstrate significantly higher academic achievement. This suggests that factors beyond just district and funding may be at play, and addressing the unique needs of Red Springs Middle's diverse student population will require a comprehensive, data-driven approach to improve teaching and learning.

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.
