In contrast, some schools, like PS 377, struggle to meet district and state averages on assessments.

The data suggests a potential correlation between higher per-student spending and better school performance, as the higher-performing schools generally have more resources and lower student-teacher ratios. However, many of the schools in the area serve high-poverty communities, facing unique challenges that may require additional support and resources to help students succeed. Overall, the educational landscape in Richmond Hill is marked by stark differences in school performance, highlighting the need for targeted interventions and equitable resource allocation to ensure all students have access to a high-quality education.
