User-submitted facts and corrections:

  • There is a second high school called Worthington Kilbourne High School. It is located at 1499 Hard Road which is actually in the city of Columbus (which may be why it wasn't on your initial info) - but students from Worthington are split among these two schools at the high school level. I hope this is helpful.
