North Bergen School District


The North Bergen School District in New Jersey consists of 8 schools, including 7 elementary schools and 1 high school, serving a predominantly Hispanic student population. While the district as a whole is ranked 512 out of 615 in the state and rated 1 star out of 5 by SchoolDigger, a few standout schools within the district are worth noting.

Robert Fulton Elementary School is the highest-ranked elementary school in the district, with strong proficiency rates in both English Language Arts and Mathematics compared to the district and state averages. John F. Kennedy Elementary School has also shown significant improvement, moving up in the statewide ranking and earning a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger. Additionally, McKinley Elementary School stands out with the lowest student-to-teacher ratio among the elementary schools, which may contribute to its relatively strong academic performance.

However, the data also reveals stark contrasts in academic performance across the district, with some schools, like Polk Street School, struggling significantly with low proficiency rates. The high rates of chronic absenteeism and the large percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch across the district suggest the need for addressing equity and access to resources for all students in the North Bergen School District.
