Fort Herriman Middle

Summary:

Fort Herriman Middle is a public middle school in Herriman, Utah, serving 1,261 students in grades 7-9 as part of the Jordan School District. This school consistently outperforms the district and state averages in academic performance, with students scoring significantly higher on standardized tests compared to their peers. However, the school has a notably higher percentage of white students and lower percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a less diverse and more affluent student population compared to nearby schools.

Fort Herriman Middle's academic excellence is evident in its consistently high performance on standardized tests, with 7th and 8th-grade students scoring 50.6% and 52.5% proficient or better in English Language Arts, respectively, compared to the district's 41% and 40.7%, and the state's 41.4% and 41.8%. This consistent academic achievement has earned the school a ranking of 45 out of 216 middle schools in Utah and a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger. In contrast, nearby schools like Joel P. Jensen Middle and West Hills Middle have lower academic performance and statewide rankings.

The racial and socioeconomic disparities between Fort Herriman Middle and the surrounding schools are also noteworthy. Fort Herriman Middle has a significantly higher percentage of white students (85.49%) compared to the more diverse student populations of nearby schools. Additionally, the school has a relatively low percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (6.26%), indicating a higher socioeconomic status compared to the nearby schools. These demographic differences may contribute to the school's academic success, but they also raise questions about equity and access for students from diverse and lower-income backgrounds.

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.
