Bronx Arts And Science Charter School

Summary:

Bronx Arts And Science Charter School is an elementary school serving 341 students in grades K-5 in the Bronx, New York, which is part of the New York City Geographic District # 8 and the New York City Geographic District #11.

Despite receiving higher per-student funding than nearby traditional public schools, Bronx Arts And Science Charter School has struggled academically, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts (ELA) and math falling below state averages. The school's performance is particularly weak for certain student subgroups, such as African American and Hispanic students, as well as English Language Learners and students with special needs. When compared to nearby schools like PS 36 Unionport, PS 138 Samuel Randall, and PS/Middle School 194, Bronx Arts And Science Charter School is underperforming, despite serving a similar student population.

The school's academic performance has also declined over the past few years, with lower ELA and math proficiency rates in the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 school years compared to the 2020-2021 school year. This concerning trend, combined with the school's high poverty rate (80.94% to 89.49% of students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch), suggests that Bronx Arts And Science Charter School may need to make significant improvements to its educational program and support for students in order to better serve its community.

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.
