The Brockton school district in Massachusetts consists of 24 schools, including 12 elementary schools, 6 middle schools, 4 high schools, and 2 alternative schools. The district serves a diverse student population, with a majority of African American and Hispanic students. While the district as a whole struggles academically, with most schools performing well below state averages, a few standout schools like Louis F Angelo Elementary and Ashfield Middle School are performing relatively well, with higher test scores and academic rankings.

The data reveals significant disparities in academic performance between the schools in Brockton, with a correlation between the racial/ethnic composition of the schools and their academic performance. Schools with higher percentages of African American and Hispanic students tend to have lower test scores. Additionally, the data suggests that higher per-student spending does not necessarily translate to better academic outcomes, as the alternative schools with the highest per-student spending do not outperform the other schools in the district. However, the schools with the lowest student-teacher ratios, such as the alternative schools and some elementary schools, seem to perform better than those with higher ratios, indicating that smaller class sizes may be a contributing factor to academic success.

Overall, the Brockton school district faces significant challenges in improving the quality of education for all its students. Addressing the disparities in academic performance and exploring the factors that contribute to the success of the higher-performing schools could be crucial in enhancing the overall educational outcomes in the district.
