The Barack Obama Green Charter High School District


The The Barack Obama Green Charter High School District in New Jersey consists of a single public charter high school, The Barack Obama Green Charter High School, which serves grades 6-12 with a total enrollment of 257 students. The school has a diverse student population, with a majority of Hispanic students (70.43%) and a significant African American population (28.4%).

Academically, The Barack Obama Green Charter High School faces some challenges, with its performance on NJSLA assessments consistently below the state average across all grade levels and subject areas. However, the school has a relatively high four-year graduation rate of 85.2% and a commendable 0.0% dropout rate. The school's chronic absenteeism rate of 18.7% is higher than the state average, which may be a contributing factor to its academic performance challenges.

The school serves a population with significant socioeconomic challenges, as evidenced by the high percentage of students (64.59%) eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. The school's per-student spending of $9,321 is a relevant data point, but without a comparison to state or district averages, it is difficult to determine if this level of funding is adequate. Overall, The Barack Obama Green Charter High School has both strengths and areas for improvement, and addressing the academic performance and attendance issues could help the school better support its diverse student population.
