Cresthaven Academy Charter School


Cresthaven Academy Charter School is the sole elementary school serving grades K-6 in the Cresthaven Academy Charter School district in Plainfield, New Jersey. With a total enrollment of 532 students, the school has a predominantly Hispanic (78.01%) and African American (19.92%) student population, and faces significant socioeconomic challenges, as evidenced by the high percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch (58.65%).

Academically, Cresthaven Academy Charter School has consistently performed below state averages on the NJSLA (New Jersey Student Learning Assessments), with proficiency rates ranging from 19.3% in 3rd grade English Language Arts to as low as 4.1% in 5th grade Mathematics. The school's performance in Science is also concerning, with only 5.4% of 5th graders scoring proficient or better. Additionally, the school's chronic absenteeism rate of 19.8% is relatively high, further contributing to the academic struggles of the student population.

Despite the challenges faced by Cresthaven Academy Charter School, the school's per-student spending of $9,510 and a student-to-teacher ratio of 14.7 suggest that resources are available to support student learning. However, the consistently low performance and the need to address the high chronic absenteeism rate indicate that the school may require targeted interventions and support to improve student outcomes and provide a quality education for the community it serves.
