Jersey City Community Charter School


Jersey City Community Charter School is the sole elementary school serving grades K-8 in the Jersey City Community Charter School District. With a total enrollment of 587 students, the school faces significant challenges, including consistently low academic performance, high chronic absenteeism, and a student population that is predominantly African American and Hispanic from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

The Jersey City Community Charter School has consistently ranked in the bottom quarter of New Jersey elementary schools, with a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. Its proficiency rates in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science are all well below the state averages, indicating that students are not receiving the necessary support and resources to achieve academic success. The school's high chronic absenteeism rate of 28.8% further compounds these challenges.

The data also reveals significant socioeconomic challenges faced by the school's student population, with 79.39% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. This high level of economic disadvantage may contribute to the school's struggles, as it suggests that students are dealing with a range of complex issues that can impact their educational outcomes. Overall, the data paints a concerning picture of a school that is in need of targeted interventions and support to improve the quality of education for its students.
