Goshen Middle School

Summary:

Goshen Middle School is a public middle school serving grades 6-8 in Goshen, Ohio, with a student population of 688 and a predominantly White (88.23%) student body. The school consistently outperforms the state average on Ohio State Tests, particularly in Integrated Math I, where 92.9% of students were proficient or better in 2022-2023, far exceeding the state average of 39.4%.

Goshen Middle School has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger and has ranked in the top half of Ohio middle schools, though its ranking has fluctuated over the years. The school's performance is strong across various student subgroups, with its Hispanic students ranking 2nd out of 247 Ohio middle schools in 2021-2022. However, the school faces challenges with a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 10.5% in 2019-2020 to 34.3% in 2020-2021, which may impact student learning and academic performance.

Compared to nearby middle schools, Goshen Middle School generally performs well, outperforming Blanchester Middle School and Clermont Northeastern Middle School in most academic areas. However, it lags behind higher-performing schools like Indian Hill Middle School, Kings Junior High School, and Loveland Middle School. The school's relatively high percentage of students (45.78%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, a proxy for low socioeconomic status, may contribute to its overall performance and the need for targeted interventions and support.

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.
