Boys' Latin of Philadelphia Charter School


Boys Latin of Philadelphia Charter School is the sole school in the data set, serving grades 6-12 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. With a total enrollment of 774 students, the school faces significant academic and socioeconomic challenges, as evidenced by its poor performance on standardized tests and low graduation rate compared to state averages.

The student body at Boys Latin of Philadelphia Charter School is predominantly African American (93.15%), and an extremely high percentage (99.48%) of students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a very economically disadvantaged population. Despite the school's high spending of $19,187 per student, which is above the state average, the academic outcomes are concerning, with proficiency rates on the PSSA and Keystone exams well below state averages across all grade levels and subject areas.

The school's 4-year graduation rate of 85.8% is below the state average, and the 0.0% dropout rate, while excellent, suggests that many students are not being adequately prepared for success in high school and beyond. Further investigation would be needed to fully understand the root causes of these issues and identify potential strategies for improvement at Boys Latin of Philadelphia Charter School.
