Summary:

Eisenhower Junior High is a public middle school located in Taylorsville, Utah, serving grades 6-9 with a total enrollment of 1,091 students. The school is part of the Granite School District, which is ranked 74 out of 100 in the state and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Eisenhower Junior High faces significant academic challenges, as evidenced by its low test scores, poor statewide rankings, and high percentage of economically disadvantaged students. The school's performance is particularly concerning for its Hispanic, White, English Language Learner, and Low Socioeconomic Status student subgroups, ranking in the bottom half or bottom third of Utah middle schools for these groups. Nearby schools, such as John F. Kennedy Junior High, West Jordan Middle, and Kearns Junior High, also struggle academically and have low rankings, suggesting that the challenges faced by Eisenhower Junior High may be reflective of broader issues within the Granite School District or the local community.

While Eisenhower Junior High faces significant challenges, the data indicates that there is room for improvement. The school's performance, particularly for its student subgroups, suggests that targeted interventions and support could potentially help to improve academic outcomes. To fully understand the school's performance and challenges, it would be important to consider the broader context, such as the socioeconomic and demographic characteristics of the surrounding community, the resources and support available to the school, and any other relevant factors that may be influencing the school's performance.

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.
