Avon Lake High School

Summary:

Avon Lake High School is a public high school located in Avon Lake, Ohio, serving grades 9-12 with a student population of 1,152. The school is part of the Avon Local school district, which is ranked 52 out of 835 districts in Ohio and has a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Avon Lake High School consistently ranks among the top high schools in Ohio, ranking 45th out of 867 high schools in the state for the 2022-2023 school year. The school has maintained a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger for the past several years, indicating excellent academic performance. Avon Lake High School students consistently outperform the state averages on Ohio State Tests across various subjects, with proficiency rates ranging from 73.8% in Geometry to 96.3% in American History, far exceeding the state averages. The school also has an exceptional four-year graduation rate, consistently above 96% in recent years, significantly higher than the state average. When compared to nearby high schools, such as Rocky River High School and Bay High School, Avon Lake High School stands out for its exceptional academic performance and graduation rates.

However, the school's demographic profile and the recent increase in chronic absenteeism rates suggest that there may be opportunities to further enhance the educational experience and ensure equitable access to resources for all students. Avon Lake High School has a predominantly white student population, with 88.54% of students identifying as white in the 2022-2023 school year, and a relatively low percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch at 10.94%. This indicates a need to explore ways to promote greater diversity and inclusion within the school community, as well as address the needs of students from lower-income backgrounds. Additionally, the school has seen an increase in chronic absenteeism rates in recent years, reaching 18.6% in the 2022-2023 school year, which is an area that the school may need to address to ensure that all students are engaged and attending school regularly.

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.
