Mountain Ridge Intermediate

Summary:

Mountain Ridge Intermediate is a public elementary school serving 582 students in grades 3-5 in Gerrardstown, West Virginia, which is part of the Berkeley County Schools district.

While Mountain Ridge Intermediate's test scores are generally higher than the Berkeley County Schools district average, the school's statewide ranking has been declining in recent years, from 159th out of 402 schools in 2015-2016 to 255th out of 368 schools in 2022-2023. The school has a significantly higher percentage of white students (84.88%) compared to nearby schools like Rosemont Elementary and Berkeley Heights Elementary, which have more diverse student populations. Additionally, Mountain Ridge Intermediate's student-teacher ratio of 15.2 is lower than some nearby schools, but its per-student spending of $10,853 is on the higher end compared to the surrounding area.

Interestingly, Mountain Ridge Intermediate's performance varies significantly across different student subgroups, with the school ranking highly for its Asian and African American students but much lower for its Hispanic, white, and special education students. Compared to nearby schools, Mountain Ridge Intermediate appears to be performing better than some, such as Orchard View Intermediate and Winchester Avenue Elementary, but worse than others, like Rosemont Elementary and Bunker Hill Elementary, which have higher test scores and statewide rankings. The school's high percentage of students (46.18%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, a proxy for low socioeconomic status, may be a contributing factor to its lower performance compared to some of the wealthier nearby schools.

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.
