North Middle School

Summary:

North Middle School is a public middle school located in Brentwood, New York, serving grades 6-8 with a total enrollment of 1,131 students. The school is part of the Brentwood Union Free School District, which is ranked 800 out of 866 school districts in New York and has a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger.

North Middle School faces significant challenges, consistently ranking in the bottom quartile of New York middle schools over the past several years. The school has a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (92.13%) compared to the surrounding schools, which have a more diverse racial composition. Additionally, North Middle School's academic performance is significantly lower than the state and district averages, with proficiency rates ranging from 15.91% to 36.41% across different subjects and grade levels. The school also has a very high percentage of students (86.21%) who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population.

Interestingly, the nearby schools, such as West Middle School, East Middle School, and South Middle School, which are also part of the Brentwood Union Free School District, show similar patterns of low academic performance and high percentages of economically disadvantaged students. This suggests that the challenges faced by North Middle School may be systemic to the district as a whole, and addressing these issues will likely require a comprehensive, data-driven approach that addresses the root causes of the school's underperformance.

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.
