The student progress grade is based on the change in student scores on state tests in English Language Arts and Math between 2010 and 2011, compared to other students in the City who started at the same levels. PS 277 received an F in the first section; student progress the school scored 5.0 out of 60 points.

The Progress Report this year is very similar to last year. There are a few additional measures on this year's Progress Report. As part of a citywide initiative to expand opportunities for underserved Black and Hispanic males, the Progress Report now awards additional credit to schools that are raising the achievement of these students. Closing the Achievement Gap Schools also receive extra points if they make exceptional gains with students with disabilities, English Language Learners, and students with the lowest proficiency citywide. No points were recorded in this section, apparently the school failed to make progress, and student’s grades did not improve.
