Brentwood High School

Summary:

Brentwood High School is a large public high school in Brentwood, New York, serving 4,641 students in grades 9-12. The school is part of the Brentwood Union Free School District, which is ranked 800 out of 866 districts in New York and has a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Brentwood High School faces several challenges, including a low four-year graduation rate of 78.6% in 2022-2023, which is lower than the state average and lags behind many nearby high schools like West Islip Senior High School, Half Hollow Hills High School East, and Hauppauge High School. The school has also seen a significant decrease in its dropout rate, from 15.6% in 2018-2019 to 4.4% in 2022-2023, but this is still higher than the nearby schools. Additionally, Brentwood High School has a high chronic absenteeism rate of 23.4%, which is significantly higher than the surrounding schools.

Academically, Brentwood High School's performance on Regents exams is mixed, with the school performing well in some subjects but struggling in others. The school's performance also varies significantly across different student subgroups, with African American and English Language Learner students performing better than White and Special Education students. These disparities, along with the school's high percentage of students (79.81%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, suggest that socioeconomic factors play a significant role in the school's challenges. However, the school has shown some signs of improvement, and addressing these issues will be crucial for its future success.

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.
