Adlai Stevenson School

Summary:

Adlai Stevenson School is an elementary school serving grades PK-8 in the Cleveland Municipal School District, with a predominantly African American student population of 419 students. The school has consistently ranked among the lowest-performing elementary schools in Ohio, with a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger for the past several years.

Adlai Stevenson School faces significant challenges, including extremely high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 18.7% in 2018-2019 to 57.2% in 2021-2022, which is significantly higher than the district and state averages. The school's academic performance, as measured by proficiency rates on Ohio state tests, is also significantly lower than the district and state averages across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in 2022-2023, only 12.1% of 3rd graders were proficient in math, compared to 29.6% in the district and 62.2% statewide. The school's performance on state tests is particularly low for African American students, low-socioeconomic status students, and students with disabilities.

The struggles at Adlai Stevenson School are not unique within the Cleveland Municipal School District, as nearby schools such as Robert H Jamison School and Andrew J Rickoff also have very low academic performance and high chronic absenteeism rates. However, the stark contrast with the higher-performing schools in the neighboring Shaker Heights City School District, such as Onaway Elementary School, Boulevard Elementary School, Fernway Elementary School, and Lomond Elementary School, highlights the need for targeted interventions and support to address the systemic issues impacting student outcomes at Adlai Stevenson and similar 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.
