Wharton Borough School District


The Wharton Borough School District in New Jersey consists of two schools: Marie V. Duffy Elementary School and Alfred C. MacKinnon Middle School. Both schools serve a predominantly Hispanic student population, with over 70% of students identifying as Hispanic at each school. However, the academic performance at these schools is generally below the state average, with proficiency rates on standardized tests lagging behind state benchmarks.

While the schools have relatively small class sizes and per-student spending that is slightly above the state average, they continue to struggle with high chronic absenteeism rates, which may be contributing to the overall academic underperformance. Neither school stands out as a clear standout in the district, as both elementary and middle school appear to be facing similar challenges in providing quality education to their diverse student populations.

The Wharton Borough School District as a whole appears to be facing significant challenges in addressing the needs of its students. The district should closely examine the root causes of the academic underperformance, develop strategies to improve attendance, and explore ways to better support its diverse student population. Addressing these issues will be crucial in ensuring that all students in the district have access to a high-quality education.
