Schuyler Middle School has a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (88.03%) compared to the state average, and a lower percentage of White students (9.23%). The school's academic performance, as measured by NSCAS test scores, is generally lower than the state averages across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, the school's 8th-grade English Language Arts proficiency rate was 58% in 2022-2023, compared to the state average of 62%. However, the school performs relatively well for its Hispanic student population, ranking 26th out of 67 Nebraska middle schools in 2022-2023. In contrast, the school ranks much lower for White students (198th out of 217) and overall (197th out of 238).

Schuyler Middle School has a very high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 42.76% to 70.07% over the past three school years, which is significantly higher than the state average. The school spends more per student ($14,722 in 2022-2023) compared to the state average, likely due to the high percentage of economically disadvantaged students. While the school's performance for its Hispanic student population is relatively strong, its overall academic performance has generally declined over the past few years, suggesting a need for the school to re-evaluate its instructional practices and interventions. Compared to nearby middle schools, such as Lakeview Junior High School and North Bend Central Middle School, Schuyler Middle School's performance is generally lower, indicating that it may benefit from learning from the strategies of these higher-performing schools.

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.
