Academically, The Richland School of Academic Arts has shown mixed performance, outperforming the state in some areas like 8th grade science and 7th grade English Language Arts, but underperforming in others like 4th and 5th grade math. The school's statewide ranking has fluctuated between 758 out of 1,610 Ohio elementary schools in 2020-2021 and 1,048 out of 1,596 in 2022-2023. However, the school has experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, from 5.8% in 2019-2020 to 25.8% in 2022-2023, which is notably higher than nearby Western Elementary (13.3%) and Stingel Elementary (10.2%).

Compared to nearby schools, The Richland School of Academic Arts stands out for its racial diversity, but its academic performance and chronic absenteeism rates are less favorable. The school should investigate the root causes of the high absenteeism and implement targeted strategies to improve student attendance, while also learning from the practices of higher-performing schools in the Ontario Local and surrounding districts to ensure more consistent and equitable academic outcomes for all its students.

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.
