Palmyra-Macedon Central School District


Summary:

The Palmyra-Macedon Central School District in New York serves students from four schools: two elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. The district's academic performance is generally lower than the state averages, with some notable variations in the performance of individual schools.

The standout school in the district is Palmyra-Macedon Senior High School, which has the highest 4-year graduation rate at 88.9% and the lowest dropout rate at 7.7%. This high school also outperforms the district and state averages on state assessments, particularly in 8th-grade English Language Arts. In contrast, Palmyra-Macedon Middle School has the lowest student-to-teacher ratio but struggles with significantly lower performance on state assessments compared to the state averages.

The district as a whole faces challenges, with a predominantly white student population and a high percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 37.05% to 48.48%. This suggests potential equity concerns that may be contributing to the district's overall academic underperformance. While Palmyra-Macedon Senior High School stands out as a relative success, the district would benefit from a comprehensive review of its educational practices and resource allocation to address the systemic issues and improve outcomes for all students.
