Lorain City


The Lorain City School District in Ohio comprises 15 schools, including 10 elementary schools, 3 middle schools, and 2 high schools, serving a diverse student population. The data reveals significant disparities in academic performance across the district, with some standout schools like Toni Wofford Morrison Elementary School and Longfellow Middle School outperforming the district and state averages, while others, such as Garfield Elementary School, struggle with low proficiency rates.

Chronic absenteeism is a major issue across the Lorain City School District, with rates ranging from 39.6% to 66.5% at individual schools, significantly higher than the state average. This, coupled with the wide variation in per-student spending, from $7,581 to $11,533, suggests that addressing attendance and resource allocation could be crucial in improving academic outcomes. The data also indicates a potential correlation between higher spending and better performance, underscoring the importance of adequate funding to support student learning.

Overall, the Lorain City School District faces significant challenges, as evidenced by the low statewide rankings and 1-star rating from SchoolDigger for some of its schools. Improving the quality of education across the district, particularly at the lowest-performing schools, will be crucial in providing a high-quality education for all students in the area.
