Gananda Middle School

Summary:

Gananda Middle School is a public middle school located in Walworth, NY, serving grades 6-8 with a total enrollment of 196 students. The school is part of the Gananda Central School District, which is ranked 560 out of 866 school districts in New York and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Gananda Middle School faces significant challenges in academic performance, equity, and overall school quality compared to state and local standards. The school has consistently underperformed on New York State Assessments in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math, with proficiency rates ranging from 28.36% to 36% in ELA and 24.32% to 45.59% in Math, all below the state averages. The school's statewide ranking has declined over the years, from 303 out of 1,429 middle schools in 2015-2016 (4 stars) to 1,089 out of 1,500 in 2022-2023 (1 star), indicating a significant drop in the school's performance relative to other middle schools in New York. The school's performance is particularly low for certain student subgroups, such as female students, Hispanic students, and special education students, raising concerns about equity.

When compared to nearby middle schools, such as Victor Junior High School, Willink Middle School, and Martha Brown Middle School, Gananda Middle School significantly underperforms in academic measures and statewide rankings. These nearby schools have higher proficiency rates, better rankings, and serve more diverse student populations. The school's rural location, relatively small size, and high percentage of white students may be contributing factors to its academic challenges, and further investigation into the school's curriculum, instructional practices, and support systems could provide insights into areas for improvement.

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.
