Bruning-Davenport High School

Summary:

Bruning-Davenport High School is a small public high school serving grades 9-12 in the rural town of Bruning, Nebraska, with a student population of just 51 students. Despite its small size, the school has consistently ranked among the top high schools in the state, demonstrating exceptional academic performance.

Bruning-Davenport High School's academic excellence is evident in its strong test scores, with 60% of 11th-grade students proficient or better in ACT Mathematics, significantly higher than the state average of 26.23%. The school also boasts a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger and ranks 2nd out of 215 Nebraska high schools, a remarkable achievement for a rural school. This high performance is likely supported by the school's low student-teacher ratio of 5.2 students per teacher, which is much lower than nearby schools like Deshler High School (8.9 students per teacher) and Fillmore Central High School (12.5 students per teacher).

While Bruning-Davenport High School's academic performance is impressive, the school's student population is predominantly white, with over 90% of students identifying as such. This racial homogeneity is in contrast to the more diverse student populations of nearby schools, such as Thayer Central Community Schools and Meridian Public Schools. Additionally, the school's high spending per student, at an average of $33,900, raises questions about the sustainability and equity of this approach compared to the lower spending at nearby schools like Fillmore Central Public Schools ($21,818 per student) and Deshler Public Schools ($23,037 per student).

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.
