While Brown Summit Middle School stands out as a high-performing outlier, ranking in the top 3 middle schools in the state, the other schools in the area struggle, with many ranking in the bottom third of schools statewide.

The schools in this area serve a relatively high-need population, with free/reduced lunch rates ranging from 16.17% at Brown Summit Middle to 99.34% at Ronald E. McNair Elementary. This highlights the additional challenges faced by schools serving economically disadvantaged communities, as the schools with the highest poverty rates tend to have the lowest test scores and rankings.

While Piedmont Classical High School also performs well, ranking in the top 40% of high schools in the state, the data suggests significant disparities in educational outcomes within the 27214 zip code. Identifying and replicating the successful strategies used at Brown Summit Middle could help raise achievement across the board and address the needs of the lower-performing schools in the area, which are served by Guilford County Schools and Piedmont Classical High School districts.
