Summary:

Mueller Park Junior High is a public middle school located in Bountiful, Utah, serving grades 7-9 with a total enrollment of 1,089 students. The school is part of the Davis School District, which is ranked 34 out of 100 districts in Utah and has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Mueller Park Junior High stands out for its strong academic performance, with consistently higher test scores than the Davis District and Utah state averages, particularly in English Language Arts and Mathematics. For example, in 2022-2023, 7th grade students at Mueller Park Junior High had 48.7% proficiency in ELA, compared to 42.4% for the Davis District and 41.4% for the state. The school also has a relatively low percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 11.1% to 13.79% over the past three years, significantly lower than some nearby schools like South Davis Junior High (25.02%) and Northwest Middle (84.2%).

While Mueller Park Junior High has a higher percentage of white students (81.27%) compared to the surrounding schools, it still maintains a relatively diverse student population, with significant percentages of Hispanic (10.56%) and Pacific Islander (2.94%) students. The school's strong academic performance and relatively affluent student population suggest a high-quality educational environment, but its declining statewide ranking, from 22 out of 206 schools in 2016-2017 to 91 out of 216 schools in 2022-2023, indicates a need to continuously evaluate and refine its strategies to maintain its competitive edge.

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.
