The schools in this district generally underperform the state averages in both English Language Arts and Mathematics proficiency, with some exceptions.

The schools in the Worth School District 127 serve a diverse student population, with a majority of white students (around 60-64%) and significant Hispanic (around 27-31%) and African American (around 4-5%) representation. However, all 3 schools have relatively high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 30.4% to 31.6%, which may impact student learning and achievement. Additionally, the schools face socioeconomic challenges, with high percentages of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 65.32% to 72.03%.

While the district as a whole appears to be underperforming compared to state averages, particularly in Mathematics proficiency, the standout performance of Worth Junior High School in English Language Arts and the relatively low student-teacher ratios at Worth Elementary School and Worth Junior High School could indicate areas of strength that could be leveraged to improve overall district performance. Addressing the high chronic absenteeism rates and supporting the socioeconomically disadvantaged student population may be key focus areas for the district to improve student outcomes.
