Dennis

Summary:

Dennis Elementary School is a high-performing public elementary school in Springboro, Ohio, serving 819 students in grades 2-5. The school is part of the Springboro Community City School District, which is ranked 62 out of 835 school districts in Ohio and has a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Dennis Elementary consistently ranks among the top elementary schools in Ohio, with students performing well above state and district averages on standardized tests. In the 2022-2023 school year, an impressive 100% of 6th-grade students were proficient or better in Mathematics, significantly higher than the state and district averages. The school's low chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 1.5% to 8.3% over the past few years, are also noteworthy, especially when compared to nearby schools like Clearcreek Elementary (12.0%) and Medlar View Elementary (20.9%). Additionally, Dennis has a relatively low student-teacher ratio of around 18-19 students per teacher, which is lower than the ratios of some nearby schools.

While Dennis Elementary's academic excellence and efficient resource allocation are impressive, the school's racial composition is significantly less diverse compared to some of the surrounding schools, with over 90% of students identifying as white. This raises questions about the school's efforts to promote diversity and inclusivity, and whether it is reflective of the broader community demographics or a result of other factors. Overall, Dennis Elementary School stands out as a high-performing, predominantly white elementary school with a strong track record of academic success and positive student outcomes.

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.
