Guttenberg School District


The Guttenberg School District is a small district in New Jersey that serves only one school, Anna L. Klein, an elementary school for grades PK-8 with a total enrollment of 949 students. The school's student population is predominantly Hispanic, making up over 90% of the student body, and a high percentage of students come from low-income families, with 74.5% qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch.

Academically, Anna L. Klein struggles, with proficiency rates on the NJSLA assessments consistently falling below state averages across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in English Language Arts, the percentage of students proficient or better ranges from 16.1% in grade 3 to 46.6% in grade 8, compared to the state averages of 42% and 55.3%, respectively. The school also faces challenges with high chronic absenteeism, at 18.2%, which is significantly higher than the state average.

Despite the low academic performance and high absenteeism rates, Anna L. Klein has a relatively low student-teacher ratio of 10.9, suggesting that the school may have adequate resources in terms of staffing. However, the data indicates that the school needs to re-evaluate how it allocates its resources to better support student learning and achievement, particularly for its predominantly Hispanic and low-income student population.
