These schools serve a diverse student population and exhibit a wide range of academic performance, with some standout institutions and others facing significant challenges.

Among the top-performing schools in the district is New Explorations Into Sciencetech And Math High School, an alternative high school with exceptional academic results, a 99.4% graduation rate, and a diverse student body. Another standout is PS 184 Shuang Wen, an elementary school that ranks among the best in the state and significantly outperforms the district and state averages on standardized tests. In contrast, some high schools, such as Lower East Side Preparatory High School and Cascades High School, struggle with alarmingly low graduation rates and high dropout rates, indicating significant challenges in supporting students to successfully complete their high school education.

The data reveals a strong correlation between socioeconomic status and academic performance, with higher-poverty schools generally underperforming compared to their more affluent counterparts. Additionally, the wide range in per-student spending and student-teacher ratios suggests potential inequities in resource allocation across the district, which could contribute to the disparities in educational outcomes. Addressing these underlying factors will be crucial in improving educational opportunities for all students in New York City Geographic District #1.
