Best Public Schools in Zip Code 60482


The 60482 zip code area is home to 3 schools - 2 elementary schools (Worth Elementary School and Worthwoods Elementary School) and 1 middle school (Worth Junior High School). While the middle school stands out for its strong performance, the elementary schools face challenges in meeting state proficiency levels, particularly in Mathematics.

Worth Junior High School outperforms the Worth School District 127 and state averages in English Language Arts proficiency for grades 6-8 and has a higher percentage of students proficient in Science. In contrast, Worth Elementary School performs better than the district average in 4th and 5th grade English Language Arts, but the other elementary school, Worthwoods Elementary School, struggles to meet state proficiency levels.

A common challenge across all three schools is the high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 30.4% to 31.6%, which are significantly higher than the state average. Additionally, the schools serve a predominantly economically disadvantaged population, with 65.32% to 72.03% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. While the per-student spending is higher than the state average, addressing the root causes of absenteeism and the socioeconomic factors may be crucial for improving the overall educational outcomes in the district.
