Marian Anderson Neighborhood Academy

Summary:

Arthur Chester A School is an elementary school in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, serving 307 students from kindergarten to 8th grade. The school is part of the Philadelphia City School District, which has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Arthur Chester A School stands out for its diverse student population, with higher percentages of White (37.13%) and Asian (7.17%) students compared to nearby schools. Academically, the school outperforms the district and state in PSSA Math (40.5% proficient) and PSSA English Language Arts (52.3% proficient). However, there are significant disparities in the performance of different student subgroups, with White students ranking 2nd out of 1,236 Pennsylvania elementary schools, while African American students and those from low socioeconomic backgrounds lag behind.

Despite the school's relatively high per-student spending of $21,284, it faces challenges in addressing the needs of its low-income student population, with 100% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. While Arthur Chester A School outperforms the district and state in many areas, it still lags behind higher-performing charter schools in the area, such as Greenfield Albert Middle School and Independence Charter School. The school's consistent improvement over the years, however, suggests it is making progress in enhancing student outcomes.

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.
