See How College-Ready Graduates from Your Ohio High School Are

In about one fifth of Ohio school high schools that get an A or A+ from the state, most graduates are not college-ready. That means that they have to take at least one remedial course when they enter college. Remedial classes -- also called developmental education classes -- essentially teach what students should have learned in high school.

In about one fifth of Ohio school high schools that get an A or A+ from the state, most graduates are not college-ready.

That means that they have to take at least one remedial course when they enter college. Remedial classes -- also called developmental education classes -- essentially teach what students should have learned in high school.

Overall, as we reported last week, 41 percent of college freshmen in Ohio's class of 2009 were not college-ready. (You can read that earlier story here.)

Right now, college readiness rates don't come into play when Ohio grades school districts. Most high schools that get an A or A+ from the state (a rating of Excellent or Excellent with Distinction) do indeed have high college readiness rates. But an analysis of Ohio Board of Regents data shows that at nearly 80 high schools rated A or A+, at least half of students who enroll in Ohio public colleges must take remedial math and/or English.

Read on to see how your high school compares.

But first, three things you should know about this information:

  • The most recent college enrollment and remediation data available from Ohio's Board of Regents is for the class of 2009, so that's what's in the chart below.
  • College enrollment and readiness rates only reflect students enrolled at Ohio public colleges or universities.
  • Different institutions have different standards for remediation. A student who must take a remedial course at one school might not have to do so if enrolled elsewhere.

(Type your high school's or district's name into the "Filter" box to pull up its information.)
