Just noted that when researching on greatschools.org. Reviews are consistently high for all three schools, so why the lower ranking - which I know is mainly based on test scores? So I guess the better question is why the lower test scores?

It's school catchment area includes places that aren't in Dublin, the others are Dublin pure. The non-Dublin students are not as affluent but it's not like they cause a whole bunch of trouble. I know some teachers from each of the Dublin high schools and would say that from my impression of them, their abilities are equivalent.

Exactly, and Scioto is odd compared to the rest of them. I would say in order the schools rank:

1. Coffman
2. Jerome
3. Scioto

Dublin, NA, Hilliard, and W.Ville are the best public school districts in the area. Coffman is definitely at an advantage. The area is more affluent, the parents care more in that area, and that's pretty much what improves the rating of the school district. I wouldn't trust greatschools that much. It's a good website, but it's data aren't always completely accurate either. It's better to self-compare based on what you know about education.
