Deca Prep


Deca Prep is a single public charter elementary school serving grades K-8 in Dayton, Ohio, with a total enrollment of 928 students. The school's student population is predominantly African American (95.15%), with small percentages of other racial groups. Despite the school's efforts, Deca Prep has consistently struggled with low academic performance, with proficiency rates on state assessments well below the statewide averages in core subjects like Mathematics, English Language Arts, and Science.

Socioeconomic factors appear to play a significant role in the school's challenges, as nearly half (45.69%) of Deca Prep's students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high percentage of economically disadvantaged students. Additionally, the school faces a chronic absenteeism rate of 26.3%, which is substantially higher than the state average and can negatively impact student learning and academic progress. Despite these challenges, Deca Prep has a slightly lower student-teacher ratio (14.3) compared to the national average for public elementary schools.

To address the persistent academic challenges at Deca Prep, the school may need to implement targeted interventions and support programs that address the specific needs of its student population, including strategies to improve attendance and provide additional resources and support for economically disadvantaged students. Collaboration with community organizations and a focus on addressing the root causes of the school's struggles could be crucial for improving educational outcomes and ensuring that all students at Deca Prep have the opportunity to succeed.
