Red Bank Borough Public School District


The Red Bank Borough Public School District operates two schools, Red Bank Middle School and Red Bank Primary School, serving students from pre-kindergarten through 8th grade. The district faces significant challenges, with both schools struggling to provide a high-quality education to their predominantly Hispanic and economically disadvantaged student populations.

Academic performance across both schools is a major concern, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science well below state averages. Red Bank Middle School has particularly low proficiency rates, ranging from 5.8% to 30.3% in Mathematics and 30.3% to 52% in English Language Arts. Red Bank Primary School fares slightly better, with a 45.8% Mathematics proficiency rate, but still lags behind state standards. Chronic absenteeism rates at both schools are also higher than the state average, which may contribute to the academic challenges.

Despite higher-than-average per-student spending, the district has failed to produce standout schools. Both Red Bank Middle School and Red Bank Primary School have low SchoolDigger ratings, indicating a need for comprehensive improvement efforts across the entire Red Bank Borough Public School District. Addressing the demographic and economic challenges faced by the student population, as well as identifying and addressing the root causes of the poor academic performance, will be crucial for the district to provide a high-quality education to its students.
