Piqua Central Intermediate School

Summary:

Piqua Central Intermediate School is a public middle school serving grades 4-6 in Piqua, Ohio, with a student population of 741. The school faces some challenges, particularly in terms of high chronic absenteeism rates and lower-than-average test scores compared to the state and nearby high-performing schools.

Piqua Central Intermediate School has seen a significant increase in chronic absenteeism rates, rising from 8.3% in 2019-2020 to 21.9% in 2022-2023, which is notably higher than the state average of 15.3%. The school's test scores on the Ohio State Tests are generally lower than the state averages, particularly in English Language Arts and Mathematics. For example, in 2022-2023, the school's 6th grade English Language Arts proficiency rate was 42.7%, compared to the state average of 55%. When compared to nearby middle schools, such as Graham Middle School, Milton-Union Middle School, and Tippecanoe Middle School, these schools generally have higher test scores and lower chronic absenteeism rates than Piqua Central Intermediate School.

Piqua Central Intermediate School's spending per student in the 2018-2019 school year was $9,441, which is higher than the state average of $12,372 for that year. However, the school's student-teacher ratio of 20:1 is similar to the nearby schools, suggesting that the higher spending may not be directly translating to improved student outcomes. The school's racial makeup is predominantly White, with a relatively small percentage of minority students, which is in contrast to some of the nearby schools, such as Sidney Middle School, which has a more diverse student population.

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.
