New York Releases List of Highest Achieving Schools in NYC

June 19, 2019

According to Chalkbeat, New York State has identified 277 New York City schools that are among the highest achieving in the Empire State. “The schools were marked as ‘top performing’ under the federal K-12 education law, Every Student Succeeds Act, or ESSA. A total of 562 schools were recognized across the state.” This is the “first year that New York has measured progress inside schools based on ESSA, which gives states more freedom in determining how to improve schools.”
