Licking Heights Local


The Licking Heights Local School District in Ohio encompasses 7 schools, including 4 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and 1 high school. The district serves a diverse student population with a mix of racial backgrounds and a significant percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating socioeconomic challenges in the area.

Among the standout schools in the district, West Elementary School stands out for its strong academic performance, with students outperforming the district and state averages in both math and English language arts. South Elementary School also impresses with the lowest student-teacher ratio (20.4) in the district, which may contribute to its relatively strong academic performance. Additionally, Licking Heights Central Intermediate School has some impressive test score results, particularly in 7th grade math and English language arts, which are significantly higher than the district and state averages.

However, the district also faces some challenges, such as the high chronic absenteeism rate at Licking Heights North Elementary School, which stands at 34.1%, significantly higher than the other schools. The variation in student-teacher ratios and spending per student across the schools may also indicate differences in staffing and resource allocation within the district, which could contribute to the disparities in academic performance observed between the schools.
