Philadelphia Electrical & Technical Charter High School


Philadelphia Electrical & Technical Charter High School is the only school in this data set, serving grades 9-12 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This public charter high school has a total enrollment of 610 students, with a predominantly African American student body (84.92%).

The school stands out for its high 4-year graduation rate of 94.1% and low dropout rate of 1.4%, indicating that it is effective at keeping students engaged and on track to complete their high school education. However, the school's academic performance on Keystone Exams is significantly below the state average, with only 4.7% of students proficient or better in Algebra I, 13.8% in Biology, and 43.8% in Literature, compared to the state averages of 34.1%, 50.7%, and 65.3%, respectively. This suggests that the school may need to focus on improving its curriculum, instructional practices, and support systems to help students achieve higher levels of academic proficiency.

The school's spending per student is $3,089, which is relatively low compared to the state average. This raises questions about the adequacy of funding and resources available to the school, which may impact its ability to provide a high-quality education and support services for its students.
