This school has been in the decline for a good while now. The administration (including district office, principals, athletic directors) are the worst in the region. I don't see this getting better soon, even with the new superintendent. There is an obvioius mishandling with the funding, and priorities are not in line with what is best for the students. The teachers are mediocre; there have been better at Amanda Clearcreek. The sport teams are having trouble as well, as students are losing interest (the levy didn't help). I don't feel like many of the administration, teachers, or coaches have much of a passion towards the school as there used to be. Of course not all is bad. This is just an overall review.

Our school has met all state standards for three years in a row. It has a great environment with my child feeling safe and happy at school. My child is involved in numerous activities and we feel our child is getting a quality education. Great atmosphere, great community, great school. Good teachers who care and an administration who tries to provide a safe learning environment.

The quality of the academic programs is low, with our school being the worst school in the district. The availabity of art and music programs is also low. we have very little variety in the music and artistic programs that are offered, and also little sports variety. the administration is horrible, and the principal's mentality is that of a junior high student.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Ohio used the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) to test students in grade 10 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. State averages displayed on public school profiles include public schools only. State averages displayed on private school profiles include private schools only. The OGT is a high school graduation requirement for public schools and chartered private schools. The OGT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Ohio. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

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.

No Value-Added data was reported for this school.

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.

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.
