West New York School District


The West New York School District in New Jersey serves a diverse student population across 9 schools, including 7 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 1 high school. The majority of students are Hispanic, ranging from 87.73% to 98.15% across the schools.

Among the standout schools, Albio Sires Elementary School has the lowest student-teacher ratio (11.4) in the district, while Public School Number Two has the highest performance on standardized tests, with several grade levels exceeding the district and state averages in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Memorial High School stands out with an 82.2% four-year graduation rate and a 0.8% dropout rate, but also has the highest chronic absenteeism rate at 35.8%.

The data reveals significant disparities in academic performance between the schools, with some schools outperforming the district and state averages, while others struggle to meet those benchmarks. This suggests that the West New York School District may need to implement targeted interventions and support to address the unique needs of each school. Additionally, the high rates of free and reduced lunch recipients across the district indicate that the schools are serving a predominantly economically disadvantaged population, which may contribute to the challenges these schools face in terms of academic achievement and other student outcomes.
