I think that Crestview is one of the best schools around. They may put a lot into sports but every teacher I have ever had encourages me to be as good as I can be academicaly. They push us in everyway and I wouldnt want to go to any other school. The money that is going into our sports programs is raised by them and our academics are great. The only reason French was canceled was because Mrs. Bockman retired. Crestview is an amazing school!

I would definatly agree with the staff member's remarks. I was a student at Crestview and I didn't get the college preperation I needed. I transferred to pioneer to get something out of my education. The school keeps pumping it's money into it's sports programs rather than using that money to improve the curriculum. I am most disgusted with the fact that they just cut the french program and ordered more smart boards. All the tools in the world won't matter if we don't have teachers to teach. If I were trying to decide where to send my child I would send them to Shelby. At least they care about academic excellence. Crestview only preps students to take these exams that this site is rating them on. They don't try to encourage an education.

I am proud to have had two daughters graduate from crestview. They were in the sports programs and the drama club, one was in national honor society. I feel the teachers were there for my daughters, especially mr. Bailey and jan kuhn. The drama club helped give them the courage to stand and speak in front of people. The sports helped them to be competative in the field of life. They are both doing great. My oldest is married to a crestview graduate also and their oldest is in kindergarten at crestview. My youngest is employed at med central. I believe the sports program give the community an opportunity to support the students as well as the drama and music programs. We all need to remember that we as parents need to get involved, show we care, instead of complaining, go offer your help.

Crestviw High School is average at best.The faculty and parents encourage sports above all else even going so far as to tell students that they can not get into college without playing sports.CHS grads are not well prepared for college not having read many of the classics and having a poor working knowledge of current scientific work.Probably 90-99% of the homework is busy work that serves no purpose other than to take up time.Extracurriculars could be better and fewer sports would be a plus.The kids are there to LEARN.Playing Div. 5 sports will probably NOT be a factor when they apply to college.Talented and gifted children are dragged down to the learning level of their lowest classmate.They are given no real opportunities to think for themselves or come to thier own conclusions.

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.
