Heartland Middle School

Summary:

Heartland Middle School is a public middle school in Edmond, Oklahoma, serving 1,071 students in grades 6-8. The school is part of the highly-ranked Edmond School District, but its academic performance lags behind some of the nearby top-performing middle schools in the area.

Heartland Middle School stands out for its diverse student population, with higher percentages of African American, Hispanic, and multiracial students compared to nearby schools. However, the school's test scores in English and Math are generally lower than the district and state averages, particularly in 8th grade. Interestingly, the school's 8th grade Science proficiency rates are higher than the district and state. Heartland also has a higher percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a larger proportion of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds.

Despite some areas of concern, Heartland Middle School does have some bright spots. The school performs well in supporting certain student subgroups, such as African American and Hispanic students, as well as students with disabilities, ranking among the top schools in the state for these populations. However, the school's overall statewide ranking has declined in recent years, suggesting the need to identify and address the factors contributing to the performance gap compared to other high-performing Edmond middle schools like Central Middle School and Deer Creek 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.
