Barberton Intermediate School

Summary:

Barberton Intermediate School is a public elementary school serving grades 3-5 in the Barberton City School District in Ohio, with a student population of 697. While the school has a predominantly White student body (68.87%), it also serves significant populations of African American (17.93%) and Hispanic (4.16%) students.

Barberton Intermediate School faces several challenges, including high rates of chronic absenteeism (33.1%), which are notably higher than the state average and the rates of nearby schools like Norton Primary Elementary (29.0%) and Rimer Community Learning Center (37.7%). The school's test scores on the Ohio State Tests are also generally below the state averages across all grade levels and subject areas, with proficiency rates in Math and English Language Arts 5-10 percentage points lower than the state averages. Additionally, Barberton Intermediate School has a very high percentage of students (74.32%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population, which is significantly higher than the rates of nearby schools like Coventry Elementary (49.89%).

Despite these challenges, Barberton Intermediate School has some relative strengths, including its support for African American students, who outperform their White peers on state tests, ranking in the top 30% of Ohio elementary schools for this subgroup. The school's gifted and talented program also appears to be a strength, with the school ranking in the top 25% of Ohio elementary schools for this subgroup in 2022-2023. When compared to nearby schools, Barberton Intermediate School generally performs worse on key metrics, but it is worth noting that many of the nearby schools serve student populations with even higher levels of economic disadvantage and lower overall performance.

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.
