Cincinnati Achievement Academy has an overwhelmingly African American student population, with 96.89% of students identifying as African American in the 2022-2023 school year. This is significantly higher than the nearby schools, such as Parker Woods Montessori School, Chase School, and Pleasant Hill Academy, which have more diverse racial compositions. Academically, Cincinnati Achievement Academy consistently ranks among the lowest-performing elementary schools in Ohio, with proficiency rates on state tests significantly below the state and district averages across all grade levels and subject areas.

The school has also struggled with high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 5.0% to 56.1% over the past few years, which is much higher than the nearby schools. Additionally, Cincinnati Achievement Academy has a relatively high student-teacher ratio, ranging from 12.5 to 16.1 over the past few years, suggesting that the school may not have adequate resources to provide a high-quality education for its students. Addressing these challenges will be crucial for improving outcomes for the students at Cincinnati Achievement Academy.

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.
