Yalow’s students come from all over the Bronx, some traveling almost 9 miles one way to get to the school. They come from the far north, the far east, far south, and a concentration around the school area—forming a triangle from the school up to Coop City and then down to Hunts Point.
In the 2018-2019 school year, Yalow’s 450 students came from 379 families; 30%—135 students—were siblings from 66 families. Among those 450 students, over 94% were eligible for free or reduced-price lunches, and 60 families (14%) lived non-traditionally, in shelters, doubling up in apartments. 28% were English language learners, and 76 (17%) of our K-4 students had individualized education plans (IEPs). 67% of our students were Hispanic; 32% African or African-American. 47% of our students came from 208 households that spoke languages other than English at home; 40% spoke Spanish at home; others spoke Arabic, Bambari, Bengali, French, Fulani, Hausa, Mandinka, Russian, Soninke, Twi, and Yoruba.
We are committed to providing a quality educational experience for all of our students, one that will prepare them for college.Yalow 448 Student Map 2019
