Mansfield Middle School faces significant challenges, consistently ranking in the bottom quarter of Ohio middle schools and maintaining a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. Student performance on Ohio state tests is significantly below state and district averages across all subject areas and grade levels, with only 14.6% of 7th graders and 17.7% of 8th graders proficient or better in mathematics, compared to state averages of 47.6% and 46.4%, respectively. The school also struggles with high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 16.9% to 63.0% over the past several years, which is significantly higher than the state average. Notably, the school's performance is particularly low for certain student subgroups, such as White students, multi-racial students, and students with disabilities, who rank in the bottom 20-25% of Ohio middle schools.

These nearby schools serve student populations that are predominantly White, with lower percentages of minority and economically disadvantaged students, which may contribute to their stronger academic 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.
