However, this school serves a high-need student population, with 99.28% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch.

While the schools in the 45653 zip code generally perform well academically, they face challenges with attendance, as all three schools have chronic absenteeism rates significantly higher than the state's 15% target. Additionally, the student populations at these schools are overwhelmingly white, with very low representation of other racial/ethnic groups, an area the district may want to address to promote greater diversity and inclusion. Overall, the schools in this area are providing a quality education, but the district should continue to monitor and address attendance and equity issues to ensure all students have access to the resources they need to succeed.
