For a public school I think this is a top notch school. The level of personalization and help provided to each student has been outstanding.

I think that Hatton Elementary school is a great school in the Akron Schools Cluster. My two older kids went to Hatton and are now both in high school. I now have a younger child at Hatton. The school does a great job of teaching the kids and involving them in activities and programs at the school. There is also fantastic parental involvement at the school. You are never discouraged from attending field trips or programs at the school. They are always asking for volunteers to help read to and tutor the students who need a little 'extra' help. The kids also have art, music, gym and LRC once every week. The teachers really care about the kids. I have teachers that are now teaching my younger child still asking how my older two are doing! They still remember them after 10 years!

Principal Cynthia Wilhite has created an excellent environment for staff and students to excel. She has excellent communication skills and makes herself available to teachers, parents and students. There is a strong sense of community and pride at the school. Academic achievement is stressed. Every day, the children reinforce their commitment to learning by reminding themselves and others that they 'are there to learn, do their best, act responsibly, respect their teachers and other adults and to treat their classmates with kindness.' Overall, It is a great school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Ohio used the Ohio Achievement Assessment (OAA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The OAA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Ohio. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

About the tests


In 2010-2011, the Ohio Department of Education used the Value-Added Measure to show how much growth students made on the Ohio Achievement Test since the last school year. The state expects that student test scores will show an average year's worth of growth compared to test scores from the previous year. Ohio's Value-Added Measure is not the same as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), a federal measure which uses different criteria.

About the tests


Ohio uses the Performance Index to provide an overall indication of how well students perform on its standardized tests each year. The Performance Index scores are based upon how well each student does on all tested subjects in grades 3 through 8 and 10. Schools and districts earn anywhere from 1.2 points for each student scoring at the advanced level to zero points for each untested student. The Performance Index ranges between 0 and 120, with 100 as the statewide goal for all students.

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.
