Southeastern High School

Summary:

Southeastern High School is a public high school located in Chillicothe, Ohio, serving 263 students in grades 9-12. The school is part of the Southeastern Local District, which is ranked 246 out of 835 districts in Ohio and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Southeastern High School stands out for its strong academic performance, consistently outperforming the state average and nearby schools like Paint Valley High School and Logan Elm High School in end-of-course test scores, particularly in American Government, Biology, and English II. The school also maintains high four-year graduation rates, ranging from 89.2% to 98.5% over the past few years, which are above the state average and most nearby schools. Additionally, Southeastern High School serves a population with greater economic challenges, as indicated by its low-income student population ranking highly compared to other Ohio high schools.

However, the school has seen a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 11.9% in 2019-2020 to 33.2% in 2022-2023, which is an area of concern that the school should address. The school's performance also varies across different student subgroups, with its low-income students performing significantly better than the state average, while its disabled students lag behind. Overall, Southeastern High School appears to be a strong-performing school that is meeting the academic needs of its predominantly white, rural student population, but it should continue to monitor and address the rising chronic absenteeism issue and provide additional support for its underperforming student subgroups.

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.
