Zane Trace High School

Summary:

Zane Trace High School is a public high school located in Chillicothe, Ohio, serving 411 students in grades 9-12. The school is part of the Zane Trace Local District, which is ranked 413 out of 835 districts in Ohio and has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Zane Trace High School stands out for its high graduation rates, which have consistently ranged from 90.2% to 95.8% over the past few years, outperforming the state average and nearby schools like Huntington High School and Amanda-Clearcreek High School. However, the school's student population is significantly less diverse, with 94.89% of students identifying as white, compared to more diverse schools like Chillicothe High School. Academically, Zane Trace High School students perform better than the state average in some subjects, such as American Government, English II, and Biology, but lag behind in others, including Algebra I, Geometry, and American History.

Despite its strengths, Zane Trace High School faces some challenges. The school has seen a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 8.3% in 2019-2020 to 23.4% in 2022-2023, which is higher than the state average and several nearby schools. Additionally, the school's statewide ranking has steadily declined over the years, from a high of 322 out of 773 Ohio high schools in 2016-2017 to 552 out of 867 in 2022-2023. This suggests that the school may need to focus on addressing the needs of various student subgroups, such as female students, male students, white students, and students with special needs, to improve overall performance and keep pace with other high schools in the state.

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.
