Best Public Schools in Bidwell, OH


The city of Bidwell, Ohio is home to two schools: River Valley High School and River Valley Middle School, both part of the Gallia County Local district. While River Valley Middle School is a solid performer, ranking in the top 50% of Ohio middle schools, River Valley High School has struggled, ranking in the bottom 25% of Ohio high schools for the past three years.

River Valley Middle School outperforms the district and state in key academic metrics like 8th grade science proficiency and 6th-8th grade math and English proficiency, earning a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger. In contrast, River Valley High School has only a 1-star rating, with a 4-year graduation rate of 87.5% and high chronic absenteeism rates over 30% at both schools. The schools also have a predominantly white student population, not representative of the broader diversity in Ohio.

The data suggests a significant performance gap between the middle and high school, which may be driven by factors like the transition from middle to high school, attendance issues, and differences in per-student spending and student-teacher ratios. Addressing these challenges could be crucial in improving educational outcomes for students in Bidwell.
