Scottsburg Senior High School

Summary:

Scottsburg Senior High School is a public high school in Scottsburg, Indiana, serving 726 students in grades 9-12. The school is part of the Scott County School District 2, which is ranked 105 out of 364 districts in the state and has a 4-star rating.

While Scottsburg Senior High School has a relatively stable graduation rate, ranging from 79.6% to 85.5% over the past few years, this is lower than some nearby schools, such as Charlestown Senior High School (97.0%) and William W Borden High School (86.0%). The school also has a high chronic absenteeism rate, ranging from 28.7% to 30.1% over the past three years, significantly higher than the surrounding schools. Additionally, Scottsburg Senior High School's test scores are generally lower than the state averages and the scores of nearby schools, with only 10.24% of students proficient or better in ILEARN/Biology in 2022-2023, compared to the state average of 29%.

Compared to the nearby high schools, Scottsburg Senior High School appears to be struggling in several key areas. Its statewide ranking has declined over the years, from a high of 137 out of 379 Indiana high schools in 2013-2014 to a low of 244 out of 388 in 2020-2021. The school also has a high percentage of white students (93.53%) and free/reduced lunch recipients (49.74% to 55.51%), which may contribute to the challenges it faces. To improve its performance, Scottsburg Senior High School may need to focus on addressing the specific needs of its student population and learning from the successes of higher-performing schools in the area, such as Silver Creek High School.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

Open Quote Incredible high school! This district offers two choices for the students...Scottsburg New Tech High School and the more traditional Scottsburg High School. But don't let the traditional label fool you. Both programs use technology for student learning. The staff, as a whole, is great. There are some staff members who have an attitude that they are better than others, but the majority really care about the students. There are some departments that could use some improvement but overall, you can't go wrong with Scottsburg! Close Quote

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
