In contrast, some schools in the 10009 zip code, such as PS 34 Franklin D. Roosevelt, struggle to meet proficiency standards, highlighting the stark contrasts in academic performance within the area. The data suggests a potential correlation between the socioeconomic status of the student population and academic outcomes, with schools serving higher percentages of students from low-income families tending to have lower test scores and rankings. However, schools like Children's Workshop School, which has a diverse student population, demonstrate that diversity does not necessarily hinder academic achievement.
