Summary:

Dayton SMART Elementary School is a public charter elementary school serving 81 students in grades K-6 in Dayton, Ohio. The school has consistently ranked in the bottom 10% of Ohio elementary schools, with a 0-2 star rating out of 5, indicating it is performing significantly below the state average.

Dayton SMART Elementary School faces significant challenges, including extremely high chronic absenteeism rates ranging from 52.5% to 59.2% in recent years, well above the state average. Academically, the school's students perform well below state and district averages across all grade levels and subject areas, with only 21.4% of 3rd graders proficient in math compared to the state average of 62.2%. Despite the school's low performance, it spends a relatively high amount per student ($7,047 in 2018-2019) compared to the state average, raising questions about the effective allocation of resources.

Nearby schools like Harman Elementary School in the Oakwood City district have significantly higher academic performance and lower chronic absenteeism rates compared to Dayton SMART Elementary School. For example, Harman Elementary has over 90% proficiency rates in math and English across all grade levels, far exceeding the state and Dayton SMART Elementary School's performance. The school's low ranking and performance compared to other Dayton-area schools suggest socioeconomic factors may be a significant barrier to student success at Dayton SMART Elementary School.

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.
