Summary:

PS 126 Jacob August Riis is a sizable elementary school serving grades PK-8 in New York City's District 2, with a diverse student population of 577 students.

This high-performing school has consistently ranked among the top 15% of elementary schools in New York state over the past decade, earning a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger. It outperforms the state and district averages on state assessments in both English Language Arts (ELA) and Math, with proficiency rates ranging from 50% to 85.71% in ELA and 68.89% to 91.58% in Math. The school's exceptional support for traditionally underserved student populations, such as English Language Learners, Homeless students, and Low Socioeconomic Status students, is particularly noteworthy, with the school ranking among the top 5% and 10% of New York elementary schools for these subgroups.

While PS 126 Jacob August Riis outperforms nearby schools like Spruce Street School and PS 42 Benjamin Altman in academic metrics, these other schools also demonstrate strong performance, suggesting that there may be valuable insights to be gained from examining their effective instructional practices.

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.

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.
