I like the size of this school for my daughter. She is able to get on on one attention with plenty of structure, but the structure is not too much in that it limits the students. She enjoys it and I also am happy that they are up to date on technology as well.

My son and daughter have been attending Options for years now. We chose them for many reasons and what I like about the school is the level of communication between the staff and the parents. The level of difficulty is sufficient and the amount of homework is very reasonable. Even the variety and quality of the food that the serve for lunch is good!

My favorite overall part of Options Charter School is the fact that they had a genuine care for my child's personal well being. They are always updating technology for the students education. i would definitely recommend this school to other parents looking to enroll their child.

The teachers here are wonderful, just very understanding and take time to listen to your concerns. The class sizes are smaller here and provide a very safe environment.

The level of communication at this school is very good. I was very comfortable with my child's small class sizes and the one on one relationship she shared with her teachers.

They have all the right features, and curriculum in place to set your child up for success here. Starting with the small class sizes, friendly staff, warm nurturing environment it is a great combination for a school to have. We are grateful to have found such a wonderful place for our children to attend.

This school is what charter schools should be. The traditional high schools don't work for everyone. This school brings out the best for every student. Suddenly they believe in themselves and stop expecting failure. I thought my son was "lost" to education. He'll be graduating from college next fall. Most of that credit goes to Options.

This brings a very innovative high school option to Hamilton County. An excellent staff, community-based curriculum and an outstanding mentor program are just three of the components that make this school an attrative choice.

Our son is a Junior at Options this year. He was at HSE High for fresh and soph. Those were two very frustrating years for us!! HSE is a fine school for kids who are gifted academically and don't need any help. If, however there are some issues that need to be handled for your child to succeed the teachers and staff just don't have time to give any kind of individual attention. Options has been a godsend to our family. Our son is getting the great grades now that we always knew he was capable of. With just 130 students in the whole school and 12 kids per class, no one gets left behind. Another great thing is they provide busing. Usually unheard of from a Charter. Thanks for giving me the oportunity to Rate this great school.

Not perfect, but a caring atmosphere has done wonders for my son. Great technology and strong leadership.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Indiana used the End-of-Course (ECA) assessment to test students in middle and high school in Algebra I, Biology I, and English 10. The ECA is a criterion-referenced assessment developed specifically for students completing their instruction in Algebra I, Biology I, or English 10. The goal is for all students to score at the passing level on the test.

About the tests


Indiana uses the A through F School Grading System to assess the overall performance of a school. For the 2011-2012 school year, schools were graded based on performance and participation levels in state standardized tests and student growth using the Indiana Growth Model. In addition, high schools were graded on four-year (on-time) graduation rates and college and career readiness indicators including Advanced Placment exam results and industry certification exam results.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
