Infinity Institute

Summary:

Infinity Institute is a public high school in Jersey City, New Jersey, serving grades 6-12 with a total enrollment of 326 students. This exceptional school consistently outperforms the surrounding Jersey City Public Schools district and the state of New Jersey in academic assessments, maintaining a 100% four-year graduation rate and a 0% dropout rate.

Infinity Institute's academic performance is truly remarkable, with 100% of its students proficient or better in English Language Arts and 95-100% proficient in mathematics, far exceeding the district and state averages. The school's diverse student population, with a racial makeup of 25.77% White, 11.96% African American, 17.18% Hispanic, and 39.88% Asian, is notable compared to the nearby schools, such as Liberty High School, Lincoln High School, Henry Snyder High School, and Innovation High School, which have significantly lower academic performance and student outcomes.

Despite having a high percentage (63.8%) of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, Infinity Institute has consistently ranked among the top high schools in New Jersey for low-socioeconomic status students, ranking 4th out of 344 schools in 2022-2023. This exceptional performance across all student subgroups, combined with the school's small size, low student-teacher ratio, and focus on diversity, make Infinity Institute a standout example of educational excellence in the Jersey City area.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
