Summary:

Hayward Middle School is a public middle school located in Springfield, Ohio, serving grades 7-8 with a total enrollment of 339 students. The school is part of the Springfield City School District, which is ranked 685 out of 835 districts in Ohio and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Hayward Middle School faces significant challenges, particularly in terms of academic performance and student engagement. The school has a significantly higher percentage of minority students compared to nearby schools, with 41% African American, 17.11% Hispanic, and 12.09% two or more races. Academically, Hayward Middle School consistently ranks in the bottom 20% of Ohio middle schools, with proficiency rates on state tests that are significantly lower than the state and district averages, especially in mathematics and English language arts. The school has also struggled with high chronic absenteeism rates, reaching as high as 73.4% in the 2020-2021 school year, which is much higher than the nearby Roosevelt Middle School and Schaefer Middle School, which are also part of the Springfield City School District.

However, the data also suggests that there may be opportunities for improvement at Hayward Middle School. For example, the school's performance on the Algebra I end-of-course exam is significantly higher than its performance on other state tests, indicating that the school may have the potential to improve in other subject areas as well. Additionally, the significant performance gaps between Hayward Middle School and the nearby schools, as well as the disparities in performance among student subgroups, suggest that the school may benefit from targeted interventions and support to address the unique challenges it faces.

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.
