Best Public Schools in Zip Code 46738


The 46738 zip code area is home to 3 schools - 1 elementary, 1 middle, and 1 high school - all part of the Garrett-Keyser-Butler Community School Corporation. While the schools share some common challenges, such as underperformance on standardized tests compared to state averages, there are also some standout performers worth highlighting.

Garrett High School stands out with a relatively high 4-year graduation rate of 96.6% and better-than-average SAT scores in evidence-based reading and writing. In contrast, the elementary and middle schools in the district struggle more, with lower proficiency rates in math and English language arts. The elementary school, J.E. Ober Elementary, does have a lower chronic absenteeism rate compared to the other schools.

Across the district, there are some equity concerns worth noting. The schools have a predominantly white student population, and the higher free/reduced lunch rates at the elementary and middle schools suggest socioeconomic disparities that may be impacting student outcomes. Additionally, the district spends more per student at the high school level, which could indicate a focus on high school resources that may not be equally distributed across grade levels.
