Schuyler Central High School faces significant challenges compared to nearby schools. The school has a much higher percentage of Hispanic students (85.23%) than the predominantly white student populations in nearby schools like Clarkson Junior-Senior High School and Columbus High School.

The school also has a higher percentage of students (61.32%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a larger proportion of students from low-income families.

Schuyler Central High School's struggles are further compounded by its lower spending per student ($14,025) compared to nearby schools, which range from $18,767 to $27,586 per student. The school also has a higher student-teacher ratio (14.1) than the nearby schools, which range from 7.4 to 12.4 students per teacher. These factors suggest that Schuyler Central High School may face challenges in providing the necessary resources and support to improve student outcomes and address the significant racial and socioeconomic disparities within the school.

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.
