Pine Bush Central School District


The Pine Bush Central School District in New York consists of 7 schools, including 4 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and 1 high school. The district serves a diverse student population with varying academic performance across the schools.

The largest school in the district is Pine Bush Senior High School, which has a strong 93.7% four-year graduation rate but below-average test scores. In contrast, Pakanasink Elementary School has the most diverse student population and a high percentage of free/reduced lunch recipients, yet its test scores are on par with or better than the district and state averages in many grade levels. The school with the lowest student-teacher ratio, Circleville Middle School, also has relatively strong ELA proficiency rates and the highest 8th grade science proficiency in the district.

The data reveals significant disparities in academic performance across the schools, which may be influenced by factors such as student demographics, resource allocation, and teaching quality. While the school with the highest spending per student, Pakanasink Elementary, does not necessarily have the best academic outcomes, the schools with the lowest student-teacher ratios tend to have stronger performance, indicating that smaller class sizes may be a contributing factor to student success. Overall, the district faces challenges in supporting the academic and social-emotional needs of its high-poverty schools, and targeted interventions and additional resources may be necessary to ensure equitable educational opportunities for all students.
