Fred W. Traner Middle School

Summary:

Fred W. Traner Middle School is a public middle school in Reno, Nevada, serving 531 students in grades 6-8. The school is part of the Washoe County School District, which is ranked 4 out of 12 in the state and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger. However, Fred W. Traner Middle School consistently ranks among the lowest-performing middle schools in Nevada, with a 0-star rating and significantly lower proficiency rates in SBAC Mathematics, Reading, and Science compared to the district and state averages.

The school's performance is particularly low for various student subgroups, such as Hispanic students, Pacific Islander students, White students, English Language Learners, and students with low socioeconomic status, all of which rank in the bottom 10-15% of Nevada middle schools. This is despite the school having a 100% free and reduced lunch rate, indicating a high concentration of students from low-income families, and a relatively high spending per student of $10,494 in the 2020-2021 school year. In contrast, nearby Billinghurst Middle School, located just 5.59 miles away, ranked 41 out of 152 Nevada middle schools and had significantly higher proficiency rates in Mathematics, Reading, and Science.

The data suggests that Fred W. Traner Middle School faces significant challenges in improving student academic achievement, and targeted interventions, additional support for struggling student subgroups, and a closer examination of the school's resource allocation and instructional practices may be necessary to address these issues and drive meaningful improvements.

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.
