Woodford Academy

Summary:

Woodford Academy is an elementary school in Cincinnati, Ohio, serving 328 students in grades PK-6. The school is part of the Cincinnati Public Schools district, which has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Woodford Academy faces significant challenges, with a high chronic absenteeism rate of 44.4% and academic performance that lags behind many nearby schools, such as Pleasant Ridge Montessori School, Silverton Elementary, and John P. Parker School. The school's proficiency rates on Ohio State Tests are significantly lower than district and state averages, particularly in Mathematics and Science. Woodford Academy's performance is especially low for male students, disabled students, and students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, ranking in the bottom 20-25% of Ohio elementary schools in these subgroups.

The high chronic absenteeism rate and the school's predominantly African American student population, with 87.8% of students identifying as such, may be contributing factors to the low academic performance. However, the school's African American students perform relatively better, ranking in the top 50% of Ohio elementary schools serving this population. By addressing the chronic absenteeism issue and implementing targeted interventions, Woodford Academy has the potential to improve outcomes for its students and close the achievement gap with nearby schools.

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.
