Gotham Collaborative High School

Summary:

Gotham Collaborative High School is a public high school serving 313 students in grades 9-12 in the Bronx, New York, which is part of the New York City Geographic District #8, a low-performing district ranked 742 out of 866 in the state.

Gotham Collaborative High School consistently underperforms compared to state and district averages across a range of key metrics. The school has a diverse student population, with a majority Hispanic (55.91%) and African American (29.71%) students, but it ranks in the bottom 10% of New York high schools and has received 0 out of 5 stars from SchoolDigger, indicating very poor performance. Graduation rates are low, ranging from 47.1% to 70.1% in recent years, and dropout rates are high, ranging from 14.5% to 20.6%. The school also struggles with high chronic absenteeism, with rates ranging from 28.9% to 52.4%. Proficiency rates on Regents exams are consistently below state and district averages across all subject areas.

Interestingly, Gotham Collaborative High School performs significantly worse than nearby schools in the same district, such as Bronx Arena High School, Millenium Art Academy, and Bronx Community High School, which all have higher rankings, graduation rates, and test scores. Despite the school's high per-student spending of $28,753 and a relatively low student-teacher ratio of 7.8, these resources have not translated into improved academic outcomes for the students, who come from a high-need population, with 91.37% qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch.

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.
