Crispell Middle School

Summary:

Crispell Middle School is a public middle school located in Pine Bush, New York, serving grades 6-8 with a total enrollment of 633 students. The school is part of the Pine Bush Central School District, which is ranked 594 out of 866 school districts in New York and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Crispell Middle School faces several challenges, including a lack of racial diversity, with a significantly higher percentage of white students (68.4%) compared to nearby schools. Academically, the school's performance, as measured by state assessments, is generally lower than the state and district averages, with the percentage of students proficient or better in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math below the state and district averages across all grade levels. Crispell Middle School has consistently ranked in the bottom half of New York middle schools, with a ranking between 702 and 1103 out of around 1500 schools over the past several years, and its rankings for specific student subgroups, such as African American, Hispanic, and Special Education students, are also generally in the lower half of New York middle schools.

When compared to nearby middle schools, such as Circleville Middle School (also in the Pine Bush Central School District) and New Paltz Middle School (in the New Paltz Central School District), Crispell Middle School generally performs worse academically and has a lower statewide ranking. This suggests that the school may benefit from learning from the practices and strategies of higher-performing schools in the region, as well as addressing the underlying factors that contribute to its performance challenges, such as the high percentage of students from low-income households.

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.
