The Lyndhurst Public School District in New Jersey consists of 9 schools, including 7 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 1 high school, serving students from diverse racial and socioeconomic backgrounds. While the district has some standout performers, such as Lyndhurst High School and Jefferson School, there are also significant disparities in academic achievement and student outcomes across the district.

Lyndhurst High School is the highest-ranked school in the district, outperforming the district and state averages on standardized tests and boasting a strong 4-year graduation rate. Jefferson School, the top-performing elementary school, also demonstrates strong academic performance, with high proficiency rates in English Language Arts.

Additionally, there is significant variation in student demographics, academic performance, and resource allocation (as measured by per-student spending) across the district's schools, indicating the need for a more targeted, data-driven approach to support and improve educational outcomes for all students in the Lyndhurst Public School District.
