Yonkers City School District


The Yonkers City School District in New York serves a diverse population of students across 40 schools, including 30 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, 7 high schools, and 1 alternative school. The district's schools exhibit a wide range of academic performance, with several standout elementary schools like Pearls Hawthorne School, Patricia A Dichiaro School, and Casimir Pulaski School ranking among the top in the state. These high-performing schools boast exceptional test scores, with 76-96% of students proficient in English Language Arts and Math.

In contrast, some schools in the district, such as Ella FitzGerald Academy, Mlk Junior High Technical & Computer Magnet School, and Museum School 25, struggle with low proficiency rates in both English Language Arts and Math. This suggests significant disparities in academic performance within the district, which may be influenced by factors like socioeconomic status and student-teacher ratios.

Among the high schools, Saunders Trades & Technical High School stands out with the lowest student-teacher ratio (13.5) and the highest 4-year graduation rate (94.9%) in the district. However, the district's high schools also exhibit a wide range of dropout rates, from 0.4% to 8.1%, with Riverside High School having the highest rate. These findings highlight the need for targeted interventions and support to address the diverse challenges faced by schools within the Yonkers City School District.
