From the time our city was formed,
education has played a major role in our community.
We’re proud of our award-winning public and private
The Worthington School District is
regarded as one of the best systems in the state and in
the top 15 percent of all districts nationwide. The
district offers diverse academic and co-curricular
programs. Students perform well on national achievement
tests, state-required proficiency tests and college
entrance exams. About 90 percent of graduates plan to
attend postsecondary options.
Worthington is the only district in
Franklin County and the largest in the state to meet
every standard on the state report card for six years in
a row. For the 14th consecutive year, the district has
won the “What Parents Want Award” from SchoolMatch, an
independent, nationwide service that helps corporate
employee families find schools that match the needs of
their children. This places the district in the top 15
percent of all districts nationwide.
|Getting Your Child Registered
Registering or transferring your child to a
school in Worthington is easy. While you’ll need
to check with your new school for specific
procedures, most schools require:
- Birth certificate;
- Immunization record; and
- Proof of residency.
It would be helpful but not necessary
to have a copy of your child’s latest
report card. Most schools handle the
transfer of school records.
The district’s schools, students,
faculty, athletic teams, fine arts and performing arts
groups have won many state and national honors,
including the National Blue Ribbon School Award for
Excellence. Worthington’s two high schools, Thomas
Worthington and Worthington Kilbourne, have been ranked
in the top five among all central Ohio high schools by
Columbus Monthly in its rating of public high school
programs, the only school system to have two schools in
the top five.
