Edison Middle

Summary:

Edison Middle is a public middle school in Houston, Texas, serving 460 students in grades 6-8. The school has a predominantly Hispanic student population, with 96.96% Hispanic students in the 2022-2023 school year.

Despite being part of the Houston Independent School District, which is ranked 666 out of 968 districts in Texas, Edison Middle consistently ranks in the bottom quartile of Texas middle schools, ranking 1806 out of 2330 in 2022-2023. The school's academic performance, as measured by STAAR test scores, is significantly below the state and district averages across all subjects and grade levels. Additionally, Edison Middle has an extremely high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds, with 95.87% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, and has experienced high dropout rates in recent years, ranging from 0.8% to 4.4% between 2018-2019 and 2021-2022.

When comparing Edison Middle to nearby schools in the Houston Independent School District, such as Baylor College of Medicine Biotech Academy at Rusk, which is only 2.78 miles away, it becomes clear that Edison Middle is significantly underperforming. The school's performance is particularly concerning for certain student subgroups, ranking in the bottom quartile of Texas middle schools for female, male, Hispanic, English Language Learner, and Gifted and Talented students. Despite the high poverty rates and low academic performance, Edison Middle's per-student spending is on par with the nearby schools, suggesting that the issue may not be solely a lack of funding, but rather the effective allocation and utilization of resources.

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.
