Ps 134 Henrietta Szold

Summary:

PS 134 Henrietta Szold is an elementary school in New York City's District 1, serving 177 students in grades PK-5 with a diverse student population.

Despite the school's high per-student spending, PS 134 Henrietta Szold has consistently underperformed compared to district and state averages on the New York State Assessments, ranking in the bottom quartile of New York elementary schools over the past several years. The school's performance is particularly concerning for Hispanic and Special Education students, who rank in the bottom 10% and 15% of New York elementary schools, respectively. This is in stark contrast to nearby PS 110 Florence Nightingale, which consistently outperforms PS 134 Henrietta Szold on state assessments and has a much higher school ranking.

The high poverty rates and large percentage of minority students at PS 134 Henrietta Szold may be contributing factors to the school's low academic performance. However, the data also suggests that the school has the potential for improvement, as evidenced by its stronger performance on the 4th grade ELA and Math assessments in 2020-2021. Addressing the disparities at PS 134 Henrietta Szold will require a comprehensive, data-driven approach that addresses the unique needs of the school's student population and provides the necessary resources and support to drive sustainable improvement.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
