As part of the Davis School District, which is ranked 34 out of 100 districts in Utah, Millcreek Junior High consistently ranks among the top middle schools in the state.

Academically, Millcreek Junior High excels, with proficiency rates in core subjects like English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science that are generally higher than the district and state averages, particularly in 7th grade.

However, the school's student population is predominantly White, with a relatively low percentage of minority students compared to nearby schools like Clayton Middle and Salt Lake Arts Academy.

Millcreek Junior High serves a more affluent student population, as evidenced by the lower percentage of free and reduced-price lunch recipients compared to nearby schools.

The school's spending per student, at $8,844, is higher than some nearby schools like Farmington Junior High and Mueller Park Junior High, but lower than Bountiful Junior High and South Davis Junior High.

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.
