Bronx Arena High School

Summary:

Bronx Arena High School is a small public high school serving grades 9-12 in the Bronx, New York, with a predominantly Hispanic and African American student population of 114 students as of the 2022-2023 school year.

Despite having relatively high per-student spending, Bronx Arena High School faces significant challenges, with extremely low four-year graduation rates ranging from 16.3% to 22.6% over the past five years, much lower than the New York state average of around 80%. The school also has very high dropout rates, ranging from 7.2% to 14.2%, and chronic absenteeism rates as high as 99.3% in the 2021-2022 school year. Academically, the school's performance on Regents exams is consistently below the New York City Geographic District #8 and state averages across all subject areas. Compared to nearby public high schools in the same district, such as Bronx Studio School for Writers and Artists, Longwood Preparatory Academy, and others, Bronx Arena High School performs significantly worse across most metrics.

Interestingly, the school's homeless student population ranks in the top 25% of New York high schools, suggesting that the school may be providing additional support and resources for this vulnerable group. However, the school's performance is particularly low for female students, African American students, and special education students, who rank in the bottom 10-20% of New York high schools in these subgroups. Addressing the significant challenges faced by Bronx Arena High School will require a comprehensive approach to support the unique needs of the school's predominantly low-income, minority student population.

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.
