Circleville Middle School

Summary:

Circleville Middle School is a public middle school serving around 450 students in grades 6-8 in the Pine Bush Central School District in Circleville, New York. The school has faced significant challenges, with academic performance consistently below state and district averages, a low statewide ranking, and struggles in supporting certain student subgroups.

Academically, Circleville Middle School lags behind. In 2022-2023, the school's proficiency rates on the New York State Assessments were below the state and district averages in both English Language Arts (ELA) and Math across all grade levels. For example, in 8th grade Math, only 21.3% of Circleville students were proficient, compared to 33.33% in the district and 40.74% statewide. The school has consistently ranked in the bottom half of New York middle schools, with a ranking of 971 out of 1,500 in 2022-2023, earning a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger. Circleville Middle School also struggles to support certain student subgroups, such as Special Education students, who ranked 1,140 out of 1,307 in 2022-2023, earning a 1-star rating.

When compared to nearby middle schools, such as Warwick Valley Middle School, Circleville Middle School generally performs worse academically and has a lower statewide ranking. The school's high per-student spending of $19,642 in 2022-2023 suggests that the district may need to closely examine the root causes of these issues and implement targeted interventions to improve student outcomes at Circleville Middle School.

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.
