Northside Charter High School


Northside Charter High School is the sole public charter high school serving grades 9-12 in the Northside Charter High School district in Brooklyn, New York. With a total enrollment of 401 students, the school faces several challenges, including declining performance, high chronic absenteeism, and relatively low graduation rates compared to the state average.

The student population at Northside Charter High School is predominantly Hispanic (73.57%) and African American (21.45%), with smaller percentages of White, Asian, and Native American students. While the school's student-teacher ratio is relatively low at 9.3, it spends $21,784 per student, which is higher than the state average. However, the school's 4-year graduation rate of 82.9% is below the state average, and its statewide ranking has dropped from 974 out of 1,207 high schools in 2018-2019 to 1,142 out of 1,228 high schools in 2022-2023, indicating a decline in overall performance.

One of the most concerning issues at Northside Charter High School is the high chronic absenteeism rate of 60.3%, which is significantly higher than the state average. This could be a contributing factor to the school's declining performance and low graduation rates. Addressing the root causes of chronic absenteeism and supporting students to successfully complete their high school education should be a priority for the school's administration and the broader community.
