Liberty-Eylau Middle

Summary:

Liberty-Eylau Middle is a public middle school serving grades 5-8 in the Texarkana Independent School District (ISD) in Texarkana, Texas, with a student population of 573 that is predominantly African American and White.

While nearby schools like Atlanta Middle, Morris Upchurch Middle, and Pleasant Grove Middle generally perform better academically, Liberty-Eylau Middle consistently ranks in the bottom quartile of Texas middle schools, with significantly lower proficiency rates on STAAR tests compared to state and district averages. This trend has been declining over the past several years, with only 26% to 37% of students scoring proficient or better on STAAR Reading and 6% to 37% on STAAR Mathematics in 2022-2023, compared to state averages of 50% to 56% and 35% to 50%, respectively.

The school's academic challenges may be exacerbated by its high percentage of students from low-income families (88.83% qualify for free or reduced-price lunch) and its unique racial composition, with a much higher percentage of African American students (61.08%) compared to nearby schools. Addressing these issues will require a comprehensive and sustained effort from the school, district, and community stakeholders to ensure that all students at Liberty-Eylau Middle have the opportunity to succeed.

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.
