Milford Senior High School

Summary:

Milford Senior High School is a public high school serving grades 8-12 with a total enrollment of 1,850 students in Milford, Ohio. The school is part of the Milford Exempted Village School District, which is ranked 181 out of 835 school districts in Ohio and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Milford Senior High School consistently performs well on Ohio state tests, with significantly higher proficiency rates compared to the state average across subjects like American Government, American History, Biology, and English II. For example, in 2022-2023, the school had 90.7% proficiency in American Government, compared to the state average of 72%. The school also maintains a very high four-year graduation rate, ranging from 96.1% to 98.5% over the past five years, which is significantly higher than the state average. While the student population is predominantly White, the school has a relatively diverse student body with representation from other racial groups, including African American, Hispanic, Asian, and multi-racial students.

Compared to nearby schools, such as West Clermont High School and Clermont Northeastern High School, Milford Senior High School generally outperforms them in terms of academic achievement, graduation rates, and racial diversity. However, some nearby schools, like Madeira High School and Mariemont High School, have even stronger academic performance and lower chronic absenteeism rates, suggesting that Milford Senior High School could learn from their best practices. Additionally, the school's per-student spending of $10,084 in 2018-2019 is on par with the state average, but lower than some of the higher-performing nearby schools, indicating that the school may benefit from additional resources and funding to support its academic programs and address areas of concern, such as the recent increase in chronic absenteeism.

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.
