AIM Academy @ Belden

Summary:

AIM Academy @ Belden is an elementary school in Canton, Ohio, serving students from kindergarten to 6th grade as part of the Canton City School District. The school has a diverse student population, with racial demographics that have fluctuated over the years.

Despite being part of the Canton City School District, AIM Academy @ Belden has consistently performed below state and district averages on Ohio State Tests across various grade levels and subjects. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, the school's proficiency rates ranged from 11.8% to 50% in mathematics and 20.6% to 61.1% in English Language Arts, compared to the state averages of 50% to 66.8% in mathematics and 55% to 67.4% in English Language Arts. The school has also experienced high rates of chronic absenteeism, ranging from 4.8% in 2019-2020 to 33.3% in 2021-2022, which is significantly higher than the state average. As a result, AIM Academy @ Belden has consistently ranked in the bottom quarter of Ohio elementary schools, with a ranking between 1197 and 1408 out of around 1,600 schools in recent years.

Interestingly, when examining the performance of specific student subgroups, AIM Academy @ Belden's African American students have generally performed better than the overall student population, ranking in the top half of Ohio elementary schools for this subgroup. In contrast, the school's White, multi-racial, and low socioeconomic status students have performed significantly worse, ranking in the bottom quarter of Ohio elementary schools. This disparity in subgroup performance is an area that warrants further investigation to understand the factors contributing to these differences and how to better support all students at the school.

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.
