The Urban School Needs Map helps you compare schools based on variables such as student-to-teacher ratios, Academic Performance Indicators, enrollment size, and more
The maps allow you to:
- Identify low and high performing schools in your area.
- Understand the relationship between variables such as type of school (elementary, middle, high, charter), academic performance, student demographics, number of students per computer, teacher-to-student ratios, and teacher’s experience.
- Compare schools to one another based on these variables
