The school's student population is predominantly African American, making up 96.45% of the student body, which is significantly higher than the state average. However, the school's academic performance, as measured by proficiency rates on Ohio state tests, is quite low compared to the state averages, with only 8.1% of 5th-grade students proficient or better in science, compared to the state average of 63.9%. Additionally, the school has a very high chronic absenteeism rate of 55.1%, which is significantly higher than the state average.

Despite the school's slightly higher spending per student at $9,650, compared to the state average, Richard Allen Preparatory is ranked in the bottom 10% of Ohio elementary schools, with a 1-star rating out of 5 on the SchoolDigger rankings. This suggests that the school is struggling to provide a high-quality education to its students, and the significant racial disparity and academic underperformance raise concerns about equity and access to quality education for minority students in the area.

The data for Richard Allen Preparatory reveals a school facing significant challenges in terms of student demographics, academic achievement, attendance, and overall performance. These findings suggest the need for a comprehensive review of the school's operations, resources, and strategies to improve outcomes for its students and address the root causes of the issues identified.
