East Central High School

Summary:

East Central High School is a public high school in Tulsa, Oklahoma, serving 1,185 students in grades 9-12 from a diverse student population that is predominantly Hispanic and low-income.

Despite serving a high-need student population, East Central High School has consistently ranked among the lowest-performing high schools in Oklahoma, with only 6.7% of 11th-grade students proficient in English Language Arts, 3.6% in Mathematics, and 3.7% in Science, compared to state averages of 13.3%, 23.9%, and 23.9%, respectively. The school's student-teacher ratio of 21.8 is higher than nearby schools like Thomas Edison Preparatory High School (20.2) and Tulsa Met High School (11.8), suggesting a need for more resources to support the diverse student population. Additionally, East Central's per-student spending of $8,259 is lower than nearby schools like Memorial High School ($10,722), which may contribute to its poor academic performance.

When comparing East Central High School to other schools in the Tulsa Public Schools district, it ranks particularly low for Hispanic students (121 out of 129 Oklahoma high schools) and students from low socioeconomic backgrounds (356 out of 380 Oklahoma high schools). This suggests that the school faces significant challenges in supporting the specific needs of its diverse student population, and targeted interventions and increased funding may be necessary to improve educational outcomes for these students.

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.
