Daniel Webster High School

Summary:

Daniel Webster High School is a public high school in Tulsa, Oklahoma, serving 342 students in grades 9-12. The school has a diverse student population, with 32.16% White, 20.47% African American, 19.3% Hispanic, and other racial groups represented.

Despite its diverse student body, Daniel Webster High School has consistently underperformed academically compared to other schools in the area. In the 2022-2023 school year, only 19.7% of 11th-grade students were proficient or better in English Language Arts, 3.3% in Mathematics, 13.6% in Science, and 23.3% in U.S. History. This is significantly lower than the state and district averages. The school also serves a high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds, with 84.5% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. Additionally, the student-teacher ratio has increased from 13.7 in 2020-2021 to 19.9 in 2022-2023, which may impact the level of individual attention and support available to students.

When compared to nearby high schools, the contrast in academic performance is stark. For instance, Booker T. Washington High School, located approximately 6.2 miles away, ranked 12th out of 439 Oklahoma high schools in 2022-2023 and had significantly higher proficiency rates in core subjects. Additionally, Daniel Webster High School's performance data for specific student subgroups, such as ranking 43rd out of 70 Oklahoma high schools for African American students, suggests that the school's academic challenges may disproportionately impact certain demographic groups. However, the school's special education students performed relatively better, ranking 40th out of 184 Oklahoma high schools, indicating that the school may be providing stronger support and resources for this population.

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.

Open Quote First of all the music department is tiny and they have disfunctional band teacher at best, she lacks organization. The teachers are not up to par af far as being responsible and ontime with their own duties to the grading and recording of such. Students have low expectations of their futures and life. School spirit and pride is seriously a sad low situation. The school in whole is very below average. Close Quote

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.
