Timberline Middle

Summary:

Timberline Middle is a high-performing public middle school in Alpine, Utah, serving 1,315 students in grades 7-9. It is part of the Alpine School District, which is ranked 29 out of 100 districts in the state and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Timberline Middle consistently outperforms the state and district averages in standardized test scores, with 7th-grade students scoring 65.3% proficient or better in RISE Mathematics, compared to the Alpine District's 54% and the state's 44.9%. However, the school has a relatively homogeneous student population, with 87.76% of students identifying as White, which is higher than the racial diversity of nearby schools like Hidden Valley Middle and Midvale Middle. Additionally, Timberline Middle has a very low percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, at only 5.78%, significantly lower than the nearby schools.

The school's academic success may be attributed to its relatively low student-teacher ratio of 25.4, which is lower than the nearby schools and the state average. This smaller class size may allow for more individualized attention and support for students. Overall, Timberline Middle's consistent high performance, low diversity, and socioeconomic factors make it an interesting case study for understanding the factors that contribute to educational excellence.

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.
