New York City Geographic District #20


New York City Geographic District #20 is home to 45 schools, including 32 elementary schools, 8 middle schools, and 5 high schools. The district serves a diverse student population and exhibits a wide range of academic performance across its schools.

The district is home to several standout schools, including Brooklyn School Of Inquiry and Academy Of Talented Scholars (The), which rank among the top elementary schools in New York. At the middle school level, Junior High School 259 William McKinley and Madeleine Brennan School (The) are also high-performing. The district's top high school is Urban Assembly School For Leadership And Empowerment, which boasts a 95% four-year graduation rate.

While the district exhibits a range of academic performance, some common trends emerge. Schools with higher percentages of Asian and white students tend to have stronger academic outcomes, suggesting potential disparities in educational opportunities. Additionally, schools with lower student-teacher ratios, such as Academy Of Talented Scholars (The) and Ps 503 School Of Journalism And Technology (The), generally perform better academically, highlighting the importance of individualized attention. However, the data also suggests that simply increasing spending per student does not necessarily translate to improved academic performance, underscoring the need for a more holistic approach to school improvement within District #20.
