Manhattan Charter School II

Summary:

Manhattan Charter School II is a small public charter elementary school serving 99 students in grades K-5 in New York City. The school has a predominantly Hispanic (54.55%) and African American (42.42%) student population.

Despite the school's high per-student spending of $25,282, which is significantly above the state average, Manhattan Charter School II has struggled academically. In the 2022-2023 school year, the school's proficiency rates on the New York State Assessments were significantly lower than the state and New York City Geographic District # 1 averages across all grade levels and subjects. For example, in 3rd grade math, only 28.57% of Manhattan Charter School II students were proficient, compared to 53.68% statewide. The school has consistently ranked in the bottom half of New York elementary schools, with a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger for the 2022-2023 school year.

Compared to nearby public schools like PS 20 Anna Silver, PS 184 Shuang Wen, and PS 2 Meyer London, which have significantly higher proficiency rates and overall rankings, Manhattan Charter School II is underperforming. The school's racial composition is also quite different from the nearby public schools, suggesting that it may not be effectively serving the needs of its predominantly 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.
