Bloomington High School

Summary:

Bloomington High School is a public high school in Bloomington, Texas, serving grades 9-12 with a student population of 239. The school is part of the Calhoun County Independent School District, which is ranked 859 out of 968 districts in Texas and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. Bloomington High School's student body is predominantly Hispanic (82.01% in 2022-2023).

Bloomington High School has consistently underperformed compared to the state average on STAAR End-of-Course (EOC) exams, with proficiency rates ranging from 36% in Algebra I to 76% in U.S. History, while the state averages were 45% and 71%, respectively. This academic underperformance is reflected in the school's low statewide ranking, which has been in the bottom third of Texas high schools for the past several years. Additionally, Bloomington High School has had a four-year graduation rate ranging from 71.7% to 78.7% over the past five years, which is lower than the state average, and a relatively high dropout rate ranging from 1.7% to 7.9% during the same period.

Bloomington High School's performance is generally lower than that of nearby high schools, such as Industrial High School, Victoria West High School, and Austwell-Tivoli High School, which have higher proficiency rates on STAAR EOC exams, higher graduation rates, and lower dropout rates. However, the school's relatively low student-teacher ratio, ranging from 9.1 to 11.7 over the past three years, suggests a more personalized learning environment. Despite this, the school's higher per-student spending of $16,661 in 2020-2021 has not translated into improved academic outcomes.

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.
