Horizon Science Academy Dayton Downtown


Horizon Science Academy Dayton Downtown is the sole elementary public charter school serving grades K-8 in the Horizon Science Academy Dayton Downtown district, with 189 students. The school has consistently ranked in the bottom 10% of Ohio elementary schools over the past three years, with a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger, indicating it is a chronically underperforming institution struggling to meet the needs of its diverse student population.

The school's academic performance is concerning, with proficiency rates well below state averages across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in 8th grade math, only 4.5% of students were proficient, compared to the state average of 46.4%. Additionally, the school has an extremely high chronic absenteeism rate of 70.4%, which is likely a significant contributor to the poor academic outcomes. While the school's spending per student of $7,994 is slightly below the state average, this does not appear to be a major factor in the school's underperformance.

The consistently low rankings and 0-star ratings from SchoolDigger over the past three years indicate that Horizon Science Academy Dayton Downtown is a chronically underperforming school that is failing to provide an adequate education for its students, regardless of their background. Addressing the high chronic absenteeism rate and improving academic outcomes across all subject areas and grade levels should be the school's top priorities in order to better serve the community.
