Lane Middle School

Summary:

Lane Middle School is a public middle school located in Portland, Oregon, serving grades 6-8 with a total enrollment of 334 students. The school is part of the Portland School District 1J, which is ranked 18 out of 139 districts in Oregon and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

While Lane Middle School has a more diverse student population compared to nearby schools like Floyd Light Middle School and da Vinci Middle School, it consistently performs below the district and state averages in standardized test scores across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, only 17.6% of 6th graders, 18.1% of 7th graders, and 33% of 8th graders were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to the district averages of 51.7%, 56.4%, and 54%, respectively. The school's math proficiency rates are also significantly lower than the district and state, ranging from 7.9% to 16.9% across the grades. Additionally, 66.77% of Lane Middle School students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, which is significantly higher than the nearby schools, which range from 12.08% to 34.1%.

Despite these challenges, the data suggests that there may be opportunities for improvement at Lane Middle School. The school's ranking and rating, while low, indicate that there is room for growth and the potential to better serve its students. Targeted interventions and support, along with a focus on addressing the unique needs of the diverse student population, could help Lane Middle School improve its academic outcomes and better serve the community.

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.
