Huntington Elementary School

Summary:

Huntington Elementary School is a public elementary school located in Chillicothe, Ohio, serving 407 students in grades K-4. The school is part of the Huntington Local District, which is ranked 544 out of 835 districts in the state and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

While Huntington Elementary School's academic performance is generally on par with or slightly above the district and state averages in math and English language arts, it lags behind higher-performing nearby schools like Southeastern Elementary and Unioto Elementary. The school has a significantly higher percentage of white students (94.35%) compared to the state average and nearby schools like Chillicothe Primary (71.23% white) and Chillicothe Intermediate (72.92% white). Additionally, Huntington Elementary School has experienced a concerning increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 6.0% in 2019-2020 to 28.6% in 2022-2023, which is notably higher than the state average and most nearby schools.

While Huntington Elementary School performs relatively well for low socioeconomic status students, ranking in the top 30% of Ohio elementary schools, its performance for other student subgroups, such as white students, special education students, and gifted and talented students, is generally in the bottom half of Ohio elementary schools. The school's statewide ranking has also steadily declined over the past decade, suggesting that it is not keeping pace with improvements in other Ohio elementary schools. By learning from the practices of higher-performing nearby schools and addressing the factors contributing to chronic absenteeism, Huntington Elementary School has the potential to improve its overall academic outcomes and better support all of its students.

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.
