Ps 182

Summary:

PS 182 is an elementary school located in the Bronx, New York, serving grades PK-5 with a total enrollment of 458 students. The school is part of the New York City Geographic District #8, which is ranked 742 out of 866 districts in New York and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

PS 182 faces several challenges, including a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (62.23%) compared to nearby schools, and lower academic performance, with only 29.11% of 3rd graders proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to the New York City District #8 average of 31.13% and the New York state average of 44.89%. The school's statewide ranking has fluctuated over the years, ranging from 528 out of 2,201 New York elementary schools in 2020-2021 to 1,872 out of 2,434 in 2021-2022, suggesting inconsistent academic performance. Additionally, PS 182 has a very high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 82.56% to 89.96% over the past three school years, indicating a high proportion of students from low-income families.

Interestingly, the nearby schools, such as PS 583, PS 107, and Dr. Emmett W. Bassett School, generally perform better academically than PS 182, with higher proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Math. However, these schools also serve a similar demographic of students, with high percentages of low-income and minority students. Despite the increased per-student spending at PS 182, from $15,723 in 2019-2020 to $21,876 in 2022-2023, this has not yet resulted in significant improvements in student outcomes.

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 This school has great teachers. The wealth of experience and passion to be found heading the classrooms is nothing short of inspiring. However, these amazing teachers are not supported by the administration. You can see this in the downcast eyes and averted glances when you walk down the halls. Adding to this problem is the very real gulf that exists between the administration and the parents. It is something that really detracts from the draw that this school could have. The final part of this recipe for disaster is an ineffectual, unconcerned and unprofessional parent coordinator. I will not go into further detail about her. You must visit the school in order to fully grasp the impact that she has on the overall atmosphere of the building.
It is unfortunate because this school has incredible teachers, concerned and active parents and happens to be the only school in District 8 that houses a Gifted and Talented program.
Contrary to the overall theme of this review it's not all doom and gloom but be prepared to advocate and be an active participant in your child's education if you're considering this school. 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.
