College Hill Fundamental Academy

Summary:

College Hill Fundamental Academy is an elementary school in Cincinnati, Ohio, serving 409 students in grades PK-6. The school is part of the Cincinnati Public Schools district, which has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

College Hill Fundamental Academy faces significant challenges compared to nearby schools. The school has a much higher percentage of African American students (90.95%) than surrounding schools, which range from 46.56% to 87.35% African American. Academically, the school consistently ranks in the bottom quartile of Ohio elementary schools, with proficiency rates on state tests that are far below the district and state averages. For example, in 2022-2023, only 7.8% of 5th-grade students were proficient or better in Science, compared to 36.7% for the district and 63.9% for the state. The school has also experienced a sharp increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 8.9% in 2018-2019 to 35.5% in 2022-2023, which is much higher than the 26.2% to 62.5% range of nearby schools.

While College Hill Fundamental Academy has a relatively low student-teacher ratio compared to surrounding schools, this does not appear to be translating to better academic outcomes. The stark racial imbalance and persistent low performance at the school suggest that factors beyond just staffing and resources may be contributing to the challenges faced by the school and its students. Addressing these issues will likely require a comprehensive approach that considers the unique needs and context of the school and its community.

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.
