Union City School District


The Union City School District in New Jersey comprises 14 schools, including 10 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and 2 high schools, serving a predominantly Hispanic student population.

Among the standout schools in the district, Jose Marti STEM Academy ranks 34th out of 422 New Jersey high schools and boasts a remarkable 99.4% four-year graduation rate, significantly higher than the district and state averages. Additionally, Sara M. Gilmore Academy ranks 20th out of 1,342 New Jersey elementary schools, with exceptional academic performance, and Jefferson Elementary School ranks 129th out of 1,342 New Jersey elementary schools, also demonstrating strong academic results.

However, the data reveals significant disparities in academic performance across the district, with some schools, such as Veterans' Memorial Elementary School and Hudson Elementary School, struggling with low proficiency rates. These disparities may be linked to socioeconomic factors, as schools with higher percentages of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch tend to have lower academic performance. The district's per-student spending also varies considerably, suggesting the need for more equitable resource allocation to address these performance gaps and improve educational outcomes for all students in the Union City School District.
