Here is what I KNOW as of August 2014:

SUBGROUP DEMOGRAPHIC R.M.MARRS MAgnet Middle School(Grades 5-8) DISTRICT
Free & Reduced Lunch 92.7% 76.2%

Ethnic Compilation:

Hispanic American Indian African American Caucasion Asian American

All of the schools in this district have seen an attendance increase . The 2013-14 PK-12 membership of 51,070 demonstrates an annual increase of 609 students (1.2 percent). The Kindergarten class this year was 4,472 students, the largest seen since the 1970’s.
This middle school has seen even more of an increase than other schools in the district ( as demonstrated by the numbers below. The total attendance for 2013-2014 was 757 students.
Below is the layout of the student population for the 2014-2015 school year:

Student Population: 517 (7-8 grade only)

Building Optimal Maximum Capacity: 575 students

In this school, there are unfortunatley, 20-23 students per teacher in the 7th and 8th grad classrooms. When the newly built middle school opens next year they are hoping that the students will feed into that school and ease the extensive overcrowding issue.

Looking at the chart, it is different than the one I have pulled up from the Ne department of education and the Us dept. of education. This school has had an increase in overall scores since 2003 when it first became a magnet school. This is one of the reasons that it has become such a popular school choice.

All of the teachers are committed to the success of each and every student. I have had four of my children go through this school and my last child is a 6th grader there now.I trust the faculty there to continue growing and learning through professional development and to not only make good on their promise to continue raising the test scores but to continue educating the "whole" individual student and not just a "demographic.

Excellent Four stars for this school. First hand experience asa parent since 2003 Close Quote

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.
