Stanton Middle School

Summary:

Stanton Middle School is a public middle school located in Kent, Ohio, serving grades 6-9 with a total enrollment of 660 students. The school is part of the Kent City School District, which is ranked 334 out of 835 districts in Ohio and has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Stanton Middle School consistently outperforms the state and Kent City School District averages on Ohio State Tests across various subjects and grade levels. For example, in 2022-2023, Stanton had 71.1% of 8th-grade students proficient or better in Science, compared to 70.5% for the Kent City district and 64% for the state. The school also has a more diverse student population compared to many nearby schools, with 18.79% African American, 3.64% Hispanic, and 1.97% Asian students. However, Stanton's ranking has declined over the years, from a high of 126th out of 1,035 Ohio middle schools in 2014-2015 to 510th out of 1,037 in 2020-2021, and the school has seen a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 11.6% in 2019-2020 to 30.6% in 2022-2023.

While Stanton Middle School generally outperforms the state and Kent City district averages, some nearby schools, such as Woodridge Middle School and Field Middle School, have higher academic performance and lower chronic absenteeism rates. This suggests that Stanton Middle School may have room for improvement to reach the level of its higher-performing neighbors and address the challenges it is facing, such as the declining ranking and increasing chronic absenteeism.

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.
