North Country Road School

Summary:

North Country Road School is a public middle school serving grades 6-8 in the Miller Place Union Free School District, with a student population of 534 that is predominantly White (85.02%).

While North Country Road School has seen a decline in its statewide ranking in recent years, dropping from 339 out of 1,429 New York middle schools in 2015-2016 to 890 out of 1,500 in 2022-2023, it still performs better than nearby schools like Dawnwood Middle School and Selden Middle School. However, the school lags behind higher-performing schools in the Three Village Central School District and the Mount Sinai Union Free School District. The school's performance on state assessments varies significantly across different student subgroups, with Hispanic, special education, and economically disadvantaged students lagging behind their peers.

One of North Country Road School's strengths is its exceptional performance on Regents exams, particularly in Algebra I and Earth Science, where it achieves 100% proficiency rates, significantly outperforming the state and district averages. Additionally, the school has a relatively low student-teacher ratio of 9.9, which may contribute to its strong Regents exam performance and could be a model for improving academic achievement in other areas.

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.
