New York City Geographic District #12


New York City Geographic District #12 contains 46 schools, including 21 elementary schools, 10 middle schools, and 15 high schools, serving a diverse student population with a high percentage of African American and Hispanic students and many students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

The district has a mix of high-performing and struggling schools. Ps 67 Mohegan School stands out as an exceptional elementary school, ranking 481 out of 2,439 New York elementary schools and earning a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger. The school boasts impressive test scores, with over 65% of 5th graders proficient or better in math, far exceeding the district and state averages. In contrast, some schools like Ps 214 and Ps 195 struggle, with proficiency rates well below the district and state averages.

The data reveals significant disparities in student-teacher ratios, with some schools like Ps 211 and School Of Performing Arts having much lower ratios than others, which could contribute to the differences in academic performance. Additionally, the high rates of economic disadvantage, with many schools having over 90% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, highlight the challenges facing the community and the need for targeted support and resources.
