Musselman Middle School

Summary:

Musselman Middle School is a public middle school located in Bunker Hill, West Virginia, serving grades 6-8 with a total enrollment of 673 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.

Musselman Middle School has consistently underperformed compared to the state and district averages in mathematics and English language arts proficiency. For example, in 2022-2023, only 19.9% of 6th graders, 22.2% of 7th graders, and 12.4% of 8th graders were proficient or better in mathematics, compared to the state averages of 30.2%, 30.7%, and 28.2%, respectively. The school's student population is predominantly White, with a higher percentage of White students (75.48%) compared to nearby schools like Wildwood Middle School and Martinsburg North Middle School, which have more diverse student populations. Additionally, Musselman Middle School has a higher percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch (49.22%) compared to the state average, indicating a greater concentration of students from low-income families.

Musselman Middle School's statewide ranking has declined over the years, from a high of 15th out of 176 West Virginia middle schools in 2016-2017 to 120th out of 168 in 2022-2023, with a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. This decline in performance is concerning, especially when compared to nearby schools like Harpers Ferry Middle School and Shepherdstown Middle School, which rank among the top 25 middle schools in West Virginia. Addressing the challenges faced by Musselman Middle School, such as declining academic performance, lack of racial diversity, and higher proportion of students from low-income families, will be crucial for improving the educational outcomes and opportunities for the 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.
