High Schools in North Bergen School District


The North Bergen School District in New Jersey is home to a single high school, North Bergen High School, which serves students in grades 9-12. The school faces significant challenges, including consistently low academic performance, a high percentage of students from low-income families, and concerning graduation and dropout rates.

Academically, North Bergen High School's proficiency rates on state assessments are well below the state averages across all subjects and grade levels. For example, in English Language Arts, the 9th-grade proficiency rate is just 28.3%, compared to the state average of 52.1%. In Algebra I, the proficiency rates range from 3.9% to 8.6%, far below the state average of 13.2% to 35.1%. The school's four-year graduation rate of 78.2% is also lower than the state average, and its dropout rate of 2.6% is a concern.

Socioeconomic factors also play a role, as the school has a high percentage of students (50.53%) eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a relatively low-income student population. Additionally, the school's chronic absenteeism rate of 14.7% is relatively high and may be a contributing factor to the low academic performance. Addressing these challenges through targeted interventions and a comprehensive, data-driven approach could be crucial for improving educational outcomes for the students in the North Bergen School District.
