Best Public Schools in Zip Code 47567


The 47567 zip code area is home to 3 schools - 1 elementary, 1 middle, and 1 high school - all part of the Pike County School Corp district. While Petersburg Elementary School shows some academic strengths, the overall performance of schools in this area is concerning, particularly at the high school level.

Pike Central High School struggles with low proficiency rates in ILEARN/Biology, SAT/Evidence-based Reading and Writing, and SAT/Mathematics, all below district and state averages. The school also has a high chronic absenteeism rate of 26.1%, significantly higher than the elementary and middle schools. In contrast, Petersburg Elementary outperforms the district and state in several 5th grade ILEARN subjects, though it still has a relatively high chronic absenteeism rate of 9.6%.

The schools in the 47567 zip code have a predominantly white student population, with very low representation of minority groups. This lack of diversity may limit the educational experiences and perspectives available to students. Additionally, while the per-student spending and student-teacher ratios are in line with the district average, the academic performance suggests that the allocation and utilization of resources may not be optimized for student success, warranting further investigation.
