Carteret Public School District


The Carteret Public School District in New Jersey serves students from 6 schools, including 3 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and 1 high school. The district's performance is mixed, with one standout school, Private Nicholas Minue Elementary School, leading the way in academic achievement, while the other schools struggle to meet state averages.

Private Nicholas Minue Elementary School stands out with significantly higher proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics compared to the district and state. In contrast, the other schools in the district have lower-than-average test scores, with proficiency rates ranging from just 4.8% to 52.8% across different grade levels and subject areas. The district also faces challenges with high chronic absenteeism rates, especially in the elementary and middle schools, which may be contributing to the low academic performance.

While Carteret High School stands out with a strong 93.2% four-year graduation rate and a low 0.4% dropout rate, the district as a whole struggles with significant achievement gaps. The variation in per-student spending across the schools may be a factor in these differences, and further analysis would be needed to understand how resources are allocated and how they impact student learning. Overall, the Carteret Public School District has both strengths and challenges, and addressing the disparities in academic performance will be crucial for ensuring all students receive a high-quality education.
