Willard City


The Willard City school district in Ohio consists of three schools: Willard Elementary School, Willard High School, and Willard Middle School. While the district serves a diverse student population, with a significant Hispanic enrollment, the schools are consistently underperforming compared to state averages, with all three schools rated 2 out of 5 stars by SchoolDigger.

Academically, the Willard City schools struggle, with proficiency rates in core subjects like math and reading falling well below state levels. For example, only 32.5% of 3rd graders at Willard Elementary School are proficient in English Language Arts, compared to 62.3% statewide. Similarly, the 4-year graduation rate at Willard High School, while relatively high at 91.8%, is still below the state average. Chronic absenteeism is also a significant issue, ranging from 26.1% at the elementary school to 32.3% at the high school.

The challenges facing the Willard City school district appear to be multifaceted, with high poverty levels, as indicated by the large percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, and potential funding disparities between the high school and the elementary and middle schools. Addressing these systemic issues will be crucial to improving educational outcomes and providing equitable opportunities for all students in the district.
