Washington-Nile Local


The Washington-Nile Local school district in Ohio comprises three schools: Portsmouth West Elementary School, Portsmouth West Middle School, and Portsmouth West High School. While the elementary and middle schools generally perform below the state average in academic subjects, the high school maintains a strong 92.8% four-year graduation rate. However, all three schools face a common challenge: high chronic absenteeism rates ranging from 31.2% to 34.9%, which may be contributing to the overall academic performance.

Among the standout schools, Portsmouth West Elementary School performs above the state average in 3rd and 4th grade math and 3rd grade English Language Arts (ELA) proficiency, but its chronic absenteeism rate of 34.9% is an area for improvement. Similarly, Portsmouth West Middle School excels in 8th grade math proficiency, but also faces a high chronic absenteeism rate of 34.4%. The racial diversity across the district is limited, with a predominantly white student population ranging from 90.79% to 94.57%.

The differences in per-student spending across the three schools, ranging from $7,941 at the middle school to $10,042 at the high school, may indicate potential funding disparities that could impact the resources and opportunities available to students. Addressing the root causes of chronic absenteeism, promoting diversity and inclusivity, and ensuring equitable resource allocation could be crucial steps in improving student outcomes across the Washington-Nile Local school district.
