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 The teachers are great at this school and really work hard. The principal, Yusuf Muhammed, on the other hand, spends most of his time increasing the hype of the school without actually doing anything within the school. He thinks the best way to help our high school-aged youth is to continually pass them on to the next grade, even if they aren't educationally ready and to discard any type of discipline structure in the school, even though research for decades has shown that students perform better when they are held accountable for their decisions.

Demand a better education from your schools, parents! Make sure your students are actually being prepared for college or life after high school. Your children learning lessons like, "It's ok to show up for class only once per week; I'm sure your full-time boss will also be ok if you show up only once per week" or "It's ok if you don't know how to write a grammatically correct sentence; I'm sure your professor in college will take the time to show you how instead of just giving you a D," are not helping the children of NYC.

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.
