London High School

Summary:

London High School is a public high school serving 629 students in grades 9-12 in London, Ohio, which is part of the Buckeye Community School - London district. The school has a predominantly white student population, with 83.78% of students identifying as white, which is significantly higher than nearby schools like Westland High School (33.24% white) and Hilliard Bradley High School (64.94% white).

Academically, London High School's performance is generally on par with or slightly above state and district averages, with proficiency rates in American Government (75%), American History (72.9%), and Biology (65.5%) higher than the state averages. The school also maintains a strong four-year graduation rate of 94.6%, which is significantly higher than nearby schools like Westland High School (87.5%) and Buckeye Community School - London (18.2%). However, the school has experienced a concerning increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 16.8% in 2019-2020 to 30.7% in 2022-2023, which is higher than the state average and nearby schools like Jonathan Alder High School (19.4%) and Mechanicsburg High School (20.6%).

While London High School generally performs better than nearby schools, its declining statewide ranking, from 189 out of 773 Ohio high schools in 2016-2017 to 476 out of 867 in 2022-2023, suggests that the school's performance may be declining relative to other schools in the state. Additionally, the school's performance varies significantly across different student subgroups, with African American and Hispanic students performing better than the overall student population, but low socioeconomic status students struggling academically.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
