Worth School District 127


The Worth School District 127 in Illinois serves students from three schools: two elementary schools (Worth Elementary School and Worthwoods Elementary School) and one middle school (Worth Junior High School). The district faces challenges with high chronic absenteeism rates and socioeconomic factors, but some schools stand out with stronger academic performance.

Worth Junior High School outperforms the district and state averages in English Language Arts proficiency for grades 6-8 and has a relatively low student-teacher ratio. Worth Elementary School also has the lowest student-teacher ratio among the elementary schools and performs better than the district average in English Language Arts for grades 4 and 5. However, the schools generally underperform the state averages in both English Language Arts and Mathematics proficiency, with high rates of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch.

Addressing the high chronic absenteeism rates and the socioeconomic challenges faced by the student population could be key focus areas for the Worth School District 127 to improve student outcomes. While some schools demonstrate stronger performance, the overall academic proficiency remains below state averages, suggesting the need for targeted interventions and resource allocation to support student success across the district.
