Interactive Map of New Jersey's Educational Landscape
Users can select school point locations and school district areas to see more details about each space's demographic composition, including breakdowns by race/ethnicity, economically disadvantaged, and limited English proficiency. Users can also toggle on and off the school map layer and each of the district layers.
With the exception of charter schools, New Jersey's public schools are divided into three different kinds of school districts:
- Unified School Districts, which serve both elementary and secondary students
- Elementary School Districts, which only serve elementary students
- Secondary School Districts, which only serve secondary students.
For the purposes of this map, we use the following definitions for types of school and district segregation:
- Apartheid Schools have a student population that is less than 1% White
- Schools with Intense non-White Segregation have a student population that is less than 10% White
- Schools with Intense White Segregation have a student population that is more than 90% White
- Multiracial Schools have a student population that has at least 3 major racial/ethnic groups each making up 10% or more of the overall population
- Unclassified Schools do not fall into any of these categories.
