AF Providence Mayoral Middle

Summary:

AF Providence Mayoral Middle is a public charter middle school serving grades 5-8 in Providence, RI, with a diverse student population that is predominantly Hispanic (73.83%) and African American (19.51%).

Despite serving a high percentage of low-income students, with 68.64% qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, AF Providence Mayoral Middle has consistently underperformed compared to the Achievement First Rhode Island district and the state of Rhode Island in both English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics proficiency. In 2022-2023, the school's ELA proficiency rate was 23.6%, compared to 29.9% for the district and 35.1% for the state, while its Mathematics proficiency rate was 23.9%, compared to 26.4% for both the district and the state. The school's performance has declined over the past three years, with its statewide ranking dropping from 31 out of 62 middle schools in 2020-2021 to 38 out of 64 in 2022-2023.

Interestingly, the nearby AF Iluminar Mayoral Middle School, which serves a similar demographic of students, outperforms AF Providence Mayoral Middle in both ELA and Mathematics proficiency, suggesting that factors beyond just student demographics may be contributing to the academic outcomes. Additionally, while the nearby public schools, such as Gilbert Stuart Middle School and Nathanael Greene Middle, have significantly lower academic performance, they serve an even higher percentage of low-income students, with free/reduced-lunch rates over 80%.

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.
