How do the charter elementary schools in Newark stack up?

We analyzed newly released data from Niche.com — including comprehensive report cards, rankings and reviews — to find out how schools in your area are performing and which have made the biggest leaps over the past year.

Roseville Community Charter School's overall rating improved the most among similar schools in Newark, rising from a C to a C+, according to data from Niche.

For the 2019-2020 school year, the school, located at 540 Orange St., enrolls 316 students. Roseville Community Charter School serves a diverse population: 54% of students identify as Hispanic and 43% identify as black. Niche graded the school a C+ for academics (on an A-D scale).

The overall ranking comes from Niche's proprietary algorithms. A school's ranking might change due to many factors, including the relative rankings of similar schools and whether a school gained or lost peers due to openings or closings. Other numbers come from current public data from the U.S. government.

Academically, 42% of Roseville Community Charter School's students scored as proficient or above in math, and 37% did so in reading. That's compared to city averages of 30% in math and 34% in reading. The school's improved overall rating is notable in that it serves a less-affluent population, with 98% of students qualifying for free or reduced lunch.

While some charter elementary schools in Newark are moving up the ranks, others are consistently top-rated overall, including:

  • New Horizons Community Charter School, with an overall rating of C-.
  • Newark Educators Community Charter School, with a C- rating overall.
