Objective: to determine the risk factors associated with low academic performance among scholars attending two public schools in Bogot. Methodology: a cross-sectional study, developed in two phases: A descriptive one, characterizing the population; and an analytic one, which included a bivariate analysis and a regression logistic model to identify associations between risk factors and low academic performance. Mathematics was the field of study used as parameter of evaluation. Results: a total of 601 of students aged 5 to 15 years old attending 1st - 5th grades were included in the study. Of these 97.6% belonged to low socioeconomic strata and 80.5% had health care insurance. 26.5% had low academic performance. The variables associated with low performance after controlling, for other factors included in the model were: child abuse, illness in the previous fifteen days, absenteeism and/or disciplinary problems and having two or more siblings.
