Cliff Park High School

Summary:

Cliff Park High School is a public charter high school located in Springfield, Ohio, serving grades 9-12 with a total enrollment of 314 students. The school has a diverse student population, with 55.1% White, 26.11% African American, 4.46% Hispanic, and 13.69% two or more races.

Cliff Park High School consistently ranks among the lowest-performing high schools in Ohio, with a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger for the past several years. The school has had abysmal four-year graduation rates, ranging from 15.5% to 38.3% over the past five years, significantly lower than the state average and the surrounding schools. Cliff Park High School also has an alarmingly high chronic absenteeism rate, reaching as high as 99.5% in the 2020-2021 school year, which is a major contributing factor to the school's poor academic performance. This underperformance is consistent across all student subgroups, including female, male, African American, White, and low socioeconomic status students.

The surrounding high schools, such as Northeastern Middle/High School, Tecumseh High School, Greenon High School, and Shawnee Middle School/High School, all perform significantly better than Cliff Park High School on various metrics, including test scores, graduation rates, and chronic absenteeism. This stark contrast suggests that there may be deeper systemic issues within the school or the Springfield City School District that need to be addressed.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
