Demographics

The demographics of Match students and Boston Public School (BPS) students are similar. Black and Hispanic students comprise 93% of Match's enrollment, as compared to 79% of BPS students. Match students also resemble BPS students on key measures of high need, including income status, English as a second language, and special education needs.

A student is classified as high need if she is designated an English Language Learner, a special education student, or economically disadvantaged. A student is classified as economically disadvantaged if she qualifies for food stamps, Medicaid, or certain other public subsidies.
