Piqua High School

Summary:

Piqua High School is a public high school serving 876 students in grades 9-12 in Piqua, Ohio, a city with a predominantly white population. While the school has a more diverse student body compared to some nearby schools, it faces several challenges, including low statewide rankings, high chronic absenteeism, and below-average test scores.

Piqua High School has consistently ranked in the bottom half of Ohio high schools, receiving a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger, significantly lower than the 5-star ratings of nearby Miami East High School and Russia High School. The school's four-year graduation rate of 89.0% is also lower than the state average and several surrounding schools, such as Russia High School (100.0%) and Fairlawn High School (98.0%). Additionally, Piqua High School has a high chronic absenteeism rate of 42.0%, much higher than the 4.3% rate at Russia High School.

Piqua High School's test scores are generally below the state average, with particularly low proficiency rates in Geometry (41.5%) and Algebra I (43.3%). In contrast, nearby schools like Russia High School and Miami East High School have significantly higher proficiency rates in these subjects. However, Piqua High School's diverse student population and proximity to the Upper Valley Career Center may present unique opportunities to improve student outcomes.

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.
