Middle Schools in Depew Union Free School District


The Depew Union Free School District has only one middle school, Depew Middle School, which serves students in grades 6-8. Located in the town of Depew, New York, the school's student population is predominantly White, with smaller percentages of other racial and ethnic groups.

Academically, Depew Middle School has faced some challenges in recent years. While the school excels in specific subject areas like Regents Algebra I and Earth Science, its proficiency rates on the New York State Assessments in English Language Arts and Math have generally been lower than the state averages. Additionally, the school's statewide ranking has declined over the past three school years, dropping from 816 out of 1,242 middle schools in 2020-2021 to 1,147 out of 1,500 middle schools in 2022-2023. This suggests that the school's performance may be declining relative to other middle schools in the state.

Socioeconomic factors may play a role in Depew Middle School's academic performance, as nearly half of the school's students (49.18%) are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. However, the school's relatively low student-teacher ratio of 11.2 could be an asset in addressing these challenges. Moving forward, the school may benefit from focusing on improving its performance on the New York State Assessments, particularly in English Language Arts and Math, to raise its overall academic standing and statewide ranking.
