Letchworth Middle School

Summary:

Letchworth Middle School is a public middle school in Gainesville, NY, serving 278 students in grades 5-8. The school is part of the Yorkshire-Pioneer Central School District, which is ranked 446 out of 866 school districts in New York and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Letchworth Middle School stands out for its significantly higher percentage of white students (92.45%) compared to the state average and nearby schools like Pioneer Middle School, Attica Junior High School, Dalton-Nunda Intermediate School, and Warsaw Middle School. However, the school's academic performance is mixed, with better-than-average results in some subjects like 5th grade math and 8th grade science, but lagging behind in English Language Arts across all grade levels. Notably, Letchworth Middle School stands out with 100% proficiency rates in Regents Algebra I and Living Environment exams, significantly outperforming the state and district averages.

Despite spending a relatively high amount per student ($11,163 in 2022-2023), Letchworth Middle School's academic performance does not seem to be commensurate with this level of spending, suggesting potential issues with resource allocation or utilization. Additionally, the school's statewide ranking has declined over the years, and there are significant disparities in performance among student subgroups, with white students and special education students underperforming compared to their peers. To improve overall academic outcomes, the school and Yorkshire-Pioneer Central School District may need to closely examine their instructional practices and targeted interventions for underperforming student groups.

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.
