Springfield Preparatory and Fitness Academy


Springfield Preparatory and Fitness Academy is the sole elementary public charter school serving grades K-8 in the area, with 140 students. The school has a diverse student population but struggles with low academic performance and high chronic absenteeism rates.

The Springfield Preparatory and Fitness Academy has a diverse student body, with 42.14% white, 29.29% African American, 7.86% Hispanic, and 20% two or more races. However, the school's academic performance, as measured by state test scores, is consistently below the state averages across multiple subjects and grade levels. For example, in 5th grade science, only 43.8% of students were proficient or better, compared to the state average of 63.9%. The school's mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA) proficiency rates also lag significantly behind state averages.

Additionally, the Springfield Preparatory and Fitness Academy has a very high chronic absenteeism rate of 50.5%, which is much higher than the state average. This high rate of chronic absenteeism can have a significant impact on student learning and academic outcomes. The school does have a relatively low student-teacher ratio of 7.7, which may allow for more individualized attention, but this alone does not guarantee better academic results. The school will need to address its core academic and attendance challenges to better serve its diverse student population.
