Kiser Elementary School

Summary:

Kiser Elementary School is a public elementary school in Dayton, Ohio, serving 552 students in grades PK-6. The school is part of the Dayton City School District, which is ranked 704 out of 835 districts in Ohio and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Kiser Elementary faces significant challenges compared to nearby schools. The school has a diverse student population, with a higher percentage of African American (38.95%) and Hispanic (18.84%) students than the state average. However, Kiser consistently ranks in the bottom 20% of Ohio elementary schools, with a 1-star rating and proficiency rates on state tests that are significantly lower than the state and district averages, particularly in mathematics and English language arts. The school also experiences high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 34% to 46.6% over the past few years, which is much higher than the state average.

While Kiser Elementary's spending per student is higher than the state average, it is still lower than some of the nearby charter schools, such as Deca Prep, Horizon Science Academy Dayton Downtown, and River's Edge Montessori Elementary School. These nearby schools tend to have higher proficiency rates and better overall performance on state assessments. Addressing the issues of academic performance, student attendance, and resource allocation could be crucial for improving Kiser Elementary's outcomes and providing a high-quality education for its diverse student population.

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.
