Kenwood Elementary

Summary:

Kenwood Elementary is a public elementary school in Springfield, Ohio, serving 402 students in grades K-6. The school is part of the Springfield City School District, which is ranked 685 out of 835 districts in Ohio and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Kenwood Elementary faces significant challenges, with consistently low academic performance and high chronic absenteeism. The school's student population is diverse, with 51.74% White, 21.64% African American, 8.71% Hispanic, and 17.66% two or more races. However, the school's proficiency rates on state tests are significantly lower than the state and district averages across all grade levels and subjects, and the school consistently ranks in the bottom 20% of Ohio elementary schools. The school's chronic absenteeism rate reached 67.1% in the 2020-2021 school year, which is much higher than the state and district averages.

While Kenwood Elementary struggles academically, some nearby schools within the same district, such as Kenton Elementary and Mann Elementary, perform significantly better on state tests and have lower chronic absenteeism rates. The school's location in a high-poverty area, the district's overall low ranking, and the student population's socioeconomic status may be contributing factors to Kenwood Elementary's academic challenges.

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.
