Welcome to Southwest Ohio! Split across the Greater Cincinnati and Dayton areas, our region is rapidly expanding. Student needs vary based on where they live. For instance, Cincinnati is home to the highest rated urban public school district, and we have a high demand for teachers for AP classes. In Dayton Public Schools, our goal is to increase the percentage of high school students who graduate within four years. Just across the Ohio River, in Covington and Newport, Kentucky, only 19 percent of middle school students at scored proficient or higher on the state exam, compared to a statewide rate of 40 percent. Increasing those results is a clear priority.
