Chickasha Middle School

Summary:

Chickasha Middle School is a public middle school serving grades 7-8 in Chickasha, Oklahoma, which is part of the Chickasha School District. The school has seen a decline in student racial diversity, with the percentage of white students increasing from 66.67% in 2020-2021 to 53.8% in 2022-2023.

Academically, Chickasha Middle School has consistently underperformed compared to the state average on standardized tests, with only 17% of 7th graders and 27% of 8th graders proficient or better in English Language Arts, and just 8% of 8th graders proficient or better in Math. In contrast, Lincoln Elementary School, also in the Chickasha district, outperformed Chickasha Middle School on these measures. The school's high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds, at 75.32%, may be a contributing factor to its academic challenges.

While Chickasha Middle School has a relatively low student-teacher ratio of 16.6 and spends $9,694 per student, which is higher than the state average, its academic performance has declined over the years, dropping from a statewide ranking of 191 out of 228 middle schools in 2018-2019 to 105 out of 149 in 2022-2023. This trend is concerning and suggests the need for more effective instructional strategies and interventions to improve student learning, especially when compared to higher-performing nearby schools like Dibble Middle School and Blanchard Middle School.

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.
