City Day Community School


City Day Community School is the sole public charter elementary school serving grades K-8 in Dayton, Ohio, with a total enrollment of 199 students. The school has a predominantly African American student population, with concerning academic performance and high chronic absenteeism rates that contribute to its low ranking among Ohio elementary schools.

According to the data, City Day Community School has significantly below-average state test proficiency rates across all grade levels and subject areas, with only 4.8% of 5th-grade students proficient in science compared to the state average of 63.9%. The school's 67.3% chronic absenteeism rate is extremely high, likely a major factor in the low academic outcomes. Additionally, the school's spending per student of $7,629 is below the state average, and its student-teacher ratio of 66.3 is significantly higher than recommended for effective instruction.

These persistent challenges suggest that City Day Community School is struggling to provide a high-quality education for its predominantly African American student population. Addressing the root causes of low performance, such as attendance issues, resource constraints, and equity concerns, will be crucial for improving student outcomes and ensuring that all children in the Dayton community have access to a strong educational foundation.
