E-Cubed Academy

Summary:

E-Cubed Academy is a public high school in Providence, Rhode Island, serving 346 students in grades 9-12. The school is part of the Providence School District, which is ranked 54 out of 59 districts in the state and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

E-Cubed Academy faces significant challenges in serving its predominantly minority and economically disadvantaged student population. The school has a much higher percentage of Hispanic students (63.87%) compared to surrounding schools, and over 86% of its students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage. Despite spending more per student ($17,470) than nearby schools, E-Cubed Academy consistently underperforms the state and district averages on standardized tests, with only 16% of 11th-grade students proficient or better in ELA, compared to 49.1% statewide. This consistent underperformance suggests the school may need to re-evaluate its strategies and practices to better support the needs of its diverse student population.

While the nearby schools, such as Hope High School, Times2 Middle/High School, and Mount Pleasant High, also serve predominantly minority and economically disadvantaged student populations, they generally outperform E-Cubed Academy on academic measures. This indicates that there may be opportunities for E-Cubed Academy to learn from the practices and strategies of its higher-performing peers.

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.
