Jefferson Local


The Jefferson Local district in Ohio is home to three schools: Norwood Elementary School, West Jefferson High School, and West Jefferson Middle School. While the schools share some similarities, such as a predominantly white student population and high rates of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, they also exhibit distinct differences in academic performance and other key metrics.

Norwood Elementary School stands out as the highest-performing school in the district, consistently ranking in the top 25-30% of Ohio elementary schools and boasting strong academic outcomes, with 70-86% of students proficient or better in core subjects. In contrast, West Jefferson High School and West Jefferson Middle School have lower state-wide rankings, with the high school placing in the bottom 40-50% of Ohio high schools. Attendance is also a concern, with chronic absenteeism rates ranging from 16.2% at Norwood Elementary to 28.8% at West Jefferson High School.

The Jefferson Local district appears to allocate resources fairly evenly across its schools, with per-student spending ranging from $9,710 to $10,654. However, the high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, which reaches as high as 70.27% at West Jefferson High School, suggests that the district may need to consider targeted investments and support to address the unique challenges faced by its low-income student population.
