Spring Mills Middle School

Summary:

Spring Mills Middle School is a public middle school located in Martinsburg, West Virginia, serving grades 6-8 with a total enrollment of 964 students. The school is part of the Berkeley County Schools district, which is ranked 41 out of 55 districts in the state and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Spring Mills Middle School has a relatively diverse student population, with 76.24% White, 8.71% African American, 5.6% Hispanic, and 8.51% two or more races. This diversity is higher compared to some of the nearby schools, such as Musselman Middle School, Mountain Ridge Middle School, and Hedgesville Middle School, which have higher percentages of White students. However, the school's academic performance has been mixed, with proficiency rates in Mathematics below the state and district averages, while its proficiency rates in English Language Arts were above the state and district averages.

While Spring Mills Middle School had a strong performance in the past, with rankings as high as 8th in the state, its performance has declined in recent years, with the school now ranking 89th out of 168 West Virginia middle schools. This trend is concerning, and the significant performance differences among student subgroups, particularly the lower performance of students with low socioeconomic status, suggest that the school may need to focus on addressing the unique needs and challenges faced by these students. Addressing these challenges and learning from the practices of higher-performing nearby schools, such as Hedgesville Middle School, could help Spring Mills Middle School to improve its academic outcomes and better serve its diverse student population.

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.
