Baker Middle School

Summary:

Baker Middle School is a public middle school located in Fairborn, Ohio, serving grades 5-8 with a total enrollment of 939 students. The school is part of the Fairborn City School District, which is ranked 507 out of 835 districts in Ohio and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Baker Middle School has a higher percentage of White students (69.12%) compared to the surrounding schools, such as Northridge Middle School (56.5% White) and Wright Brothers Middle School (38.78% White). Academically, the school's performance is generally on par with or slightly below the district and state averages, but it stands out in its exceptional performance on the Algebra I end-of-course exam, where 97% of students were proficient or better, significantly higher than the district (47.1%) and state (53%) averages. However, the school has experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 17.3% in 2019-2020 to 41.5% in 2022-2023, which is a concerning trend.

When analyzing the performance of specific student subgroups, Baker Middle School's African American and Hispanic students perform relatively well compared to their peers in other Ohio middle schools, ranking in the top half of the state. Conversely, the school's White students and students with disabilities perform below average compared to their peers. Interestingly, nearby schools like Herman K. Ankeney Middle School and Jacob Coy Middle School, both part of the Beavercreek City School District, consistently outperform Baker Middle School and the Fairborn City School District on state assessments, particularly in mathematics and English language arts.

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.
