Cody Middle School

Summary:

Cody Middle School is a public middle school serving grades 6-8 in Cody, Wyoming, with a total enrollment of 465 students. The school is part of the Park County School District #6, which is ranked 14 out of 42 school districts in Wyoming and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Cody Middle School consistently outperforms the state average in proficiency rates for English Language Arts and Mathematics on the WY-TOPP assessments across all grade levels. For example, in 2022-2023, 69.2% of 6th graders, 57.5% of 7th graders, and 69.6% of 8th graders were proficient or better in ELA, compared to the state averages of 59.8%, 54.4%, and 59.8%, respectively. Similarly, in Mathematics, Cody Middle School's proficiency rates were 62.1% for 6th grade, 62.4% for 7th grade, and 63% for 8th grade, outpacing the state averages of 51.5%, 49.1%, and 49.6%. The school also has a relatively low percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, around 25%, and maintains a low student-teacher ratio of 12 students per teacher, which is lower than the state average.

While Cody Middle School appears to be a high-performing school, it has a predominantly white student population, with over 90% of students identifying as white in the past three school years. This lack of racial diversity may be a concern, as it could limit students' exposure to different cultures and perspectives. Additionally, the school's relatively high per-student spending of $17,289 in the 2022-2023 school year, which is significantly higher than the state average, suggests that the school may not be serving a socioeconomically diverse population, which could have implications for addressing the needs of students from lower-income families.

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.
