Huntington High School stands out in several key areas. It has a significantly higher percentage of white students (96.63%) compared to the surrounding schools, which range from 88.54% to 97.9% white students. The school has consistently ranked in the bottom third of Ohio high schools, placing it in the bottom 30% statewide. Its 4-year graduation rate has fluctuated between 81.6% and 90.7% over the past 5 years, lower than the 88.3% to 95.8% range of nearby schools. Huntington High School also has a very high chronic absenteeism rate, ranging from 20.1% to 58.7%, significantly higher than the 23.0% to 46.7% range of surrounding schools. Additionally, the school's test scores on the Ohio State Tests are consistently lower than the state and local district averages across all subject areas.

While Huntington High School's performance is generally lower than the surrounding schools, there are some notable exceptions.

The data suggests that Huntington High School could benefit from targeted interventions to address chronic absenteeism, improve academic performance, and support students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

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.
