Best Public Schools in Zip Code 83544


The 83544 zip code area is home to two schools - Orofino Elementary School and Orofino High School, both part of the Orofino Joint District. While the two schools serve different grade levels, the data reveals that Orofino Elementary is the stronger performer, with higher academic proficiency rates, lower chronic absenteeism, and a higher statewide ranking compared to Orofino High School.

Academically, Orofino Elementary outshines its counterpart, with 50% of students proficient in math and 53.6% proficient in English language arts, compared to just 19.6% and 43.1% at Orofino High School. The elementary school also has a lower chronic absenteeism rate of 18.5%, while the high school sits at 28.7%.

Despite the higher per-student spending at Orofino High School, the data suggests that the elementary school is the stronger performer overall. The higher free/reduced lunch rate at Orofino Elementary also indicates that it may serve a more economically disadvantaged student population. While both schools have a majority white student body, the significant difference in chronic absenteeism rates between the two is a potential area of concern that warrants further investigation.
