State Report Card and Rankings

The Ohio School Report Card is one of the data points that Upper Arlington Schools reviews to monitor the success of our school district and our students. Below is a five-year snapshot of Upper Arlington Schools' rankings on various data points in the report card — to make this information easily accessible to members of our community. To view the state report card in its entirety, please visit the Ohio School Report Cards website.


While the state report card provides a simple way to view and compare our district's academic and financial data to others in our area and across the state, it is only a part of the story of what is happening in our schools. To offer a more holistic picture of our schools, we publish the Quality Profile, an annual accountability report that is rooted in our district’s strategic plan and offers our community a look at our progress on our strategic priorities. You can view the latest version of the Quality Profile on our website.

Performance Index

The Performance Index measures the state test results of every student, not just those who score proficient or higher. Districts receive points for every student who takes a test. If a student opts out of a state test, a district receives zero points for that student.
