King International Baccalaureate Middle

Summary:

King International Baccalaureate Middle is a public middle school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, serving 271 students in grades 6-8 and part of the Milwaukee School District, which is ranked 411 out of 424 districts in the state.

King International Baccalaureate Middle faces significant challenges, including consistently ranking in the bottom 10% of Wisconsin middle schools, with over 90% of its student population being African American compared to more diverse nearby schools like Lincoln Middle and Andrew S Douglas Middle. The school has extremely low proficiency rates in core subjects, a chronic absenteeism rate of 75.3%, and a high percentage of students (over 95%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating significant socioeconomic challenges.

While the data paints a bleak picture, the school's status as an International Baccalaureate (IB) middle school suggests potential opportunities for targeted interventions and support to improve academic outcomes. Addressing the underlying issues will require a collaborative effort between the school, Milwaukee School District, and community stakeholders to develop and implement effective strategies that address the socioeconomic and systemic factors contributing to the school's struggles.

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.
