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.

Open Quote Excellent teachers specially in the Gifted and Talented program Close Quote


by a parent
Friday, November 6, 2015

Open Quote The school population consists of two different categories of students.
There are three sections in KG. Two are regular students and one is the Gifted and Talented Program.

G&T Admission is highly selective and prized, and is attaching brighter students and educated affluent parents, who see this as an excellent option to an expensive private school education.

The PTA is very active and is being supported primarily by contributions from the parents in the G&T Class. The flavor of the G&T is spreading though the school as is seen in the latest school rankings. The Principal and Teachers are very dedicated and the school should continue to move up to become one fo ther top elementary schools in the NYC school district. Close Quote

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.
