Milby High School

Summary:

Milby High School is a public high school in Houston, Texas, serving 2,107 students in grades 9-12. The school has a predominantly Hispanic student population, with 95.16% of students identifying as Hispanic in the 2022-2023 school year. Milby High School is part of the Houston Independent School District, which is ranked 666 out of 968 districts in Texas and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Milby High School consistently ranks in the bottom half of Texas high schools, with a statewide ranking between 1,263 and 1,590 out of 1,961 high schools in the past five years. The school's performance on STAAR End-of-Course (EOC) exams is also below the district and state averages, with proficiency rates ranging from 22% to 58% across different subject areas. However, the school has seen a significant improvement in its four-year graduation rate, increasing from 75.1% in 2017-2018 to 94.2% in 2021-2022. Despite this improvement, Milby High School's dropout rate remains higher than the state average, ranging from 2.0% to 5.0% in the past five years.

Milby High School's performance varies significantly across different student subgroups. While the school's African American and Native American students perform relatively well compared to their peers statewide, the school's Hispanic, English Language Learner, and Special Education students struggle, ranking in the bottom half or bottom quarter of Texas high schools. This uneven performance suggests that the school may need to implement more targeted strategies to address the specific needs of its diverse student population. Nearby schools, such as Eastwood Academy and Early College T-STEM Academy, which are also part of the Houston Independent School District, have significantly higher academic achievement, graduation rates, and lower dropout rates compared to Milby High School.

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.
