New City School


New City School is the sole elementary school serving grades K-8 in the New City School District, located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. With a diverse student population of 371 students, the school has a mixed academic performance, with strengths in the lower grades but declining proficiency in the upper grades, particularly in math.

New City School stands out for its racial diversity, with a student body that is 56.6% white, 26.68% African American, 8.09% Hispanic, 1.62% Asian, 2.96% Native American, and 4.04% two or more races. However, the school's academic performance, as measured by MCA-III test scores, is below the state average in several areas, including 8th grade math and science. The school's student-teacher ratio of 13.8 is lower than the state average, and nearly half of its students (47.98%) receive free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage.

Despite its diverse student population, New City School has consistently ranked in the bottom half of Minnesota elementary schools in the past three school years, with rankings ranging from 494 out of 845 schools in 2022-2023 to 582 out of 869 schools in 2020-2021. The school has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger, suggesting that it may be struggling to provide a high-quality education to its students. To address these challenges, the school may need to focus on improving its curriculum and instructional practices, particularly in the upper elementary grades, and explore ways to promote equity and support students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
