Best Public Schools in Elwood, IN


The city of Elwood, Indiana is home to three schools: Elwood Junior-Senior High School, Elwood Elementary School, and Elwood Intermediate School. Unfortunately, the data indicates that the schools in the Elwood Community School Corp district are consistently underperforming compared to state averages across a range of metrics, including test scores, graduation rates, and chronic absenteeism.

None of the three Elwood schools appear to be standout performers. All three schools have significantly lower proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Math compared to the state averages. For example, the 8th grade ILEARN Math proficiency rate at Elwood Junior-Senior High School was just 10.2%, compared to the state average of 31.4%. The graduation rate at Elwood Junior-Senior High School was also slightly below the state average at 91.9%. Additionally, all three schools had high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 24.4% to 36.1%, well above the state average.

The data also suggests potential equity concerns, as all three schools have a high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 55.51% to 57.5%. The consistently low performance across the district, coupled with the high spending per student (between $8,772 and $9,205), indicates that the Elwood Community School Corp may be facing challenges in effectively allocating resources to support student learning and achievement.
