Elementary Schools in Springfield Preparatory and Fitness Academy


Springfield Preparatory and Fitness Academy is the sole elementary school serving grades K-8 in the Springfield, Ohio area. With a total enrollment of 140 students, the school has a racially diverse student population but is struggling academically, with proficiency rates well below state averages across all grade levels and subject areas, particularly in mathematics.

The school's academic performance is a major concern, with 3rd grade math proficiency at just 7.1% compared to the state average of 62.2%, and 5th grade science proficiency at 43.8% versus the state's 63.9%. This underperformance is coupled with a high chronic absenteeism rate of 50.5%, significantly higher than the state average. Despite a relatively low student-teacher ratio of 7.7, the school appears to be facing challenges in effectively utilizing its resources to support student learning and achievement.

While Springfield Preparatory and Fitness Academy is the only elementary school in the area, the data suggests that the school has significant room for improvement in providing a high-quality education for its students. Addressing the root causes of the low academic performance and high absenteeism, as well as optimizing the allocation of resources, should be the top priorities for the school and the Springfield Preparatory and Fitness Academy district.
