Midway High has a diverse student population, with a higher percentage of Hispanic students (31.57%) compared to the state average. The school also performs well in certain areas, such as Math III, where 88.8% of students were proficient or better in 2022-2023, significantly higher than the state average of 58.3%. However, the school's performance in Biology (38.7% proficient or better) and English II (53.6% proficient or better) lags behind the state averages. Midway High particularly excels for its English Language Learner (ELL) students, ranking 13th out of 226 North Carolina high schools in 2022-2023, and for its multi-racial students, ranking 70th out of 249 high schools in the state. Unfortunately, the school's performance for disabled students is relatively low, ranking 280th out of 330 high schools in 2021-2022.

Interestingly, Midway High's statewide ranking has declined over the years, from 86th out of 514 high schools in 2018-2019 to 238th out of 626 high schools in 2022-2023, suggesting that the school's performance may be declining relative to other high schools in the state.

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.
