Dayton Career Technical High School


Dayton Career Technical High School is the sole public charter high school serving grades 9-12 in the Dayton, Ohio area, with a total enrollment of 111 students. The school's performance and demographics raise significant concerns, as it ranks in the bottom 2% of Ohio high schools and struggles with extremely low graduation rates and high chronic absenteeism.

The student population at Dayton Career Technical High School is predominantly African American (77.48%), with smaller percentages of white (9.01%), Hispanic (4.5%), and students of two or more races (9.01%). The school's 4-year graduation rate is only 30.8%, well below the state average, and its chronic absenteeism rate is an alarming 88.3%, indicating that most students are missing a significant amount of instructional time. While the student-teacher ratio of 12.3 is slightly lower than the national average, the school's overall performance and demographic disparities suggest the need for substantial intervention and support to improve student outcomes and provide equitable educational opportunities.

The limited data available for Dayton Career Technical High School makes it difficult to fully understand the root causes of the school's challenges. However, the combination of low statewide rankings, poor graduation rates, and high chronic absenteeism indicates that the school is struggling to provide a quality education and support for its students, particularly those from underrepresented minority backgrounds. Addressing these issues will require a comprehensive, data-driven approach to improve student performance and ensure that all students have access to the resources and opportunities they need to succeed.
