Mill Creek Intermediate School

Summary:

Mill Creek Intermediate School is a public elementary school serving 504 students in grades 3-5 in Bunker Hill, West Virginia, which is part of the Berkeley County Schools district. While the school has a relatively low student-teacher ratio, it faces several challenges, including lower academic performance and inconsistent statewide rankings compared to other schools in the area.

One key differentiator is the school's racial makeup, with a significantly higher percentage of white students (75.79%) compared to nearby schools like Orchard View Intermediate School (59.38%) and Rosemont Elementary (60.31%). Academically, Mill Creek Intermediate School's proficiency rates on the West Virginia Assessments are generally lower than state and district averages, with its 5th-grade math proficiency rate at 20.6% compared to the state average of 38.1% and the district average of 29.7%.

While the school's per-student spending is higher than the state average, suggesting that funding and resources may not be the primary driver of its academic challenges, the focus should be on identifying and addressing other factors, such as instructional practices, curriculum, and student support services. Comparing the school to nearby schools, such as Rosemont Elementary, which had significantly higher 3rd-grade math and ELA proficiency rates, can provide valuable insights to help improve educational outcomes for Mill Creek Intermediate School's students.

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.
