College Place Middle School has a relatively diverse student population, with 40.34% White, 11.89% African American, 35.24% Hispanic, and smaller percentages of other racial groups. However, the school's academic performance, as measured by standardized test scores, is generally lower than the district and state averages. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, the school's proficiency rates in English Language Arts (44.89%) and Math (30.51%) were significantly below the Edmonds School District (57.81% and 45.51%) and Washington state (52.86% and 41.04%) averages. Additionally, College Place Middle School has a relatively high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds, with 57.96% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch.

When compared to nearby middle schools, such as Brier Terrace Middle School and Harbour Pointe Middle School, which are also part of the Edmonds School District, College Place Middle School generally performs worse academically. The school's statewide ranking has fluctuated over the years, ranging from 114 out of 437 Washington middle schools in 2017-2018 to 295 out of 539 in 2022-2023, placing it in the middle to lower range of middle schools in the state. Addressing the challenges faced by College Place Middle School, including its diverse student population, declining academic performance, and lower performance compared to nearby schools, will likely require a multi-faceted approach, including targeted interventions, professional development for teachers, and a closer examination of the school's resources and practices.

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.
