Academy of Dover Charter School


The Academy of Dover Charter School is the only school in the data set, serving students in grades K-8 in the Academy of Dover Charter School district. This elementary school has a total enrollment of 411 students, with a majority African American student population (70.8%) and lower-than-average academic performance on standardized tests compared to the state.

The Academy of Dover Charter School has consistently ranked in the bottom quarter of Delaware elementary schools, with a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. Its academic proficiency rates in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science are all below the state averages. For example, in 2022-2023, the school's English Language Arts proficiency rates ranged from 23.26% (grade 3) to 44% (grade 7), compared to the state averages of 38.44% to 42.59%.

Despite the school's lower academic performance, its spending per student for the 2018-2019 school year was $11,670, which is higher than the state average. This raises questions about the efficient use of resources and the impact of this spending on student outcomes. Overall, the data suggests that the Academy of Dover Charter School faces significant challenges in terms of academic performance, student demographics, and overall school quality, and may need to implement targeted interventions and strategies to improve student learning and achievement.
