Roosevelt Middle School

Summary:

Roosevelt Middle School is a public middle school serving grades 7-8 in the Springfield City School District in Springfield, OH, with a student population of 397. While the school's racial makeup has become more diverse in recent years, it faces significant challenges in academic performance, chronic absenteeism, and equitable outcomes for different student subgroups.

Academically, Roosevelt Middle School consistently performs below the state and district averages on Ohio state assessments, with only 30.4% of 8th graders proficient or better in Science and just 13.5% proficient or better in Mathematics, compared to state averages of 64% and 46.4%, respectively. The school's chronic absenteeism rate is also alarmingly high at 44.7%, far exceeding the state average of 21.4%. While the school's gifted and talented students perform exceptionally well, ranking 17th out of 173 Ohio middle schools, the school's White, multi-racial, and low socioeconomic status students lag behind, ranking in the bottom 10-20% of Ohio middle schools.

When compared to nearby middle schools, such as Hayward Middle School and Schaefer Middle School, Roosevelt Middle School generally performs worse across academic metrics, with lower proficiency rates and lower rankings. However, some of these nearby schools also struggle with low performance, suggesting that the challenges facing Roosevelt Middle School may be systemic within the Springfield City School District. Addressing these issues will require a multifaceted approach, including targeted interventions, attendance initiatives, and a focus on closing achievement gaps.

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.
