Wellston City


The Wellston City school district in Ohio consists of 4 schools, including 2 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 1 high school. While the district faces several challenges, such as consistently low performance, lack of racial diversity, and high chronic absenteeism rates, a few schools stand out with their academic achievements and positive metrics.

Wellston Middle School is the highest-performing school in the district, ranking 521 out of 1,048 Ohio middle schools and earning a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger. The school outperforms the district and state averages in several subject areas, including 8th grade Science and 7th grade Math. In contrast, Bundy Elementary stands out with its relatively low student-teacher ratio of 16.3, the lowest in the district.

However, the district as a whole faces significant challenges, with all schools ranked in the bottom half of their respective state-wide rankings. The schools also have a remarkably homogeneous student population, with white students making up over 96% of the enrollment, and high chronic absenteeism rates ranging from 24.6% to 33.8%. Additionally, there are potential funding disparities within the district, with Wellston High School spending significantly more per student than the elementary and middle schools.
