Great Oaks Charter School


Great Oaks Charter School is the sole public charter middle school serving grades 6-10 in New York City, with a diverse student population of 293 students. The school stands out for its strong academic performance, particularly in English Language Arts, as well as its racially diverse student body and significant per-student funding.

Academically, Great Oaks Charter School outperforms the statewide averages on New York State Assessments, with proficiency rates as high as 57.35% in 8th grade ELA compared to the state average of 55.2%. The school's diverse student population, with a majority of Hispanic and African American students, provides valuable learning experiences for the students. Additionally, the school's high per-student spending of $24,692 enables it to offer more resources and support for its students.

However, the school faces some challenges, such as a relatively high chronic absenteeism rate of 31.6%, which could be an area for improvement. While the school's overall academic performance is strong, there are some specific areas, like 7th grade math, where proficiency rates are lower than the statewide averages. Continued monitoring and targeted interventions in these areas could help Great Oaks Charter School further enhance its students' educational outcomes.
