Best High Schools in Zip Code 45420


The 45420 zip code area is home to two high schools: Belmont High School and Dayton Regional STEM School. While both serve high school students, the schools exhibit stark differences in academic performance and student outcomes.

The standout school in this area is the Dayton Regional STEM School, which is ranked 11th out of 867 Ohio high schools and has a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger. The school boasts an impressive 100% four-year graduation rate, far exceeding the state average, and its students significantly outperform state averages on Ohio state tests across all subject areas. In contrast, Belmont High School appears to be a lower-performing school, ranking 819th out of 867 Ohio high schools and receiving a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger. Belmont High School's test scores are well below state averages, and it has a very high chronic absenteeism rate of 61.8%.

The differences between the two schools extend beyond academic performance. Dayton Regional STEM School serves a more diverse student population, with 63.86% White, 9.2% African American, 7.23% Hispanic, and 7.49% Asian students, while Belmont High School has a student body that is 36.73% White, 39.91% African American, and 15.55% Hispanic. These disparities raise questions about equity and access issues that may be contributing to the performance gap between the two schools, despite their proximity in the same Dayton City and Dayton Regional STEM School districts.
