Oakland International Academy High School

Summary:

Oakland International Academy High School is a public charter high school serving grades 9-12 in Hamtramck, Michigan, with a diverse student population of 371. The school has seen steady improvements in key metrics, but also faces significant challenges in academic performance.

Oakland International Academy High School has made impressive strides, with its four-year graduation rate increasing from 79.2% in 2018-2019 to 92.9% in 2022-2023, significantly higher than the nearby Covenant House Academy Detroit East Site, which had a 12.8% four-year graduation rate. The school's dropout rate has also decreased from 9.2% in 2019-2020 to 4.7% in 2022-2023, lower than the nearby Pershing High School (21.2%) and Central High School (24.6%). However, the school's chronic absenteeism rate, while improving, remains higher than the state average.

Academically, Oakland International Academy High School faces significant challenges, with its performance on standardized tests, such as the M-Step and SAT, falling well below state averages. For example, in 2022-2023, only 10.4% of 11th-grade students were proficient or better in M-Step Science, compared to the state average of 39%. This may be due to the school's high percentage of students (98.38%) who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage. Despite these challenges, the school's unique racial diversity, with a significant percentage of White (62.26%) and Asian (21.56%) students, sets it apart from the nearby schools, which have a much higher percentage of African American students. The school's spending per student, at $11,975 in 2022-2023, is also lower than some of the nearby schools, such as Crockett Midtown High School of Science and Medicine ($23,173) and Pershing High School ($21,580).

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
