Erie City School District


The Erie City School District in Pennsylvania operates 15 schools, including 10 elementary schools, 3 middle schools, and 2 high schools, serving a diverse student population with significant economic challenges.

Two schools stand out in the district: Northwest PA Collegiate Academy, a high-performing high school that ranks 81st out of 674 Pennsylvania high schools and has exceptional graduation and academic performance rates, and Harding School, an elementary school with the highest percentage of students who are two or more races and the highest percentage of Native American students in the district. The district's schools generally perform below state averages on standardized tests, with the exception of Northwest PA Collegiate Academy.

The data reveals stark contrasts in school performance, with Northwest PA Collegiate Academy significantly outpacing the rest of the district, as well as the challenges faced by the district's schools due to high rates of economic disadvantage, as evidenced by the fact that all but one school has 100% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. Addressing these disparities and supporting the success of all students in the Erie City School District will require a comprehensive approach that considers the unique context and needs of the community.
