I am an alumni of Hopewell-Loudon, and I feel that overall the school is exemplary. I feel that the teachers are enthusiastic, helpful, approachable, and knowledgeable. During my experience as a student in this school, I found that the administration seemed unapproachable and didn't always have the best interest of all students in mind. They clearly favored some students (particularly those with familiar family names) over others. Discipline was inconsistent and sometimes unfair. They were not good at praising the great achievements of successful students, either. Certain sports teams were more appreciated than others, and students who excelled in other areas (art, band, choir, quiz bowl, etc.) were not often acknowledged. The teachers make this school a great place to learn and grow. Thankfully, the administrators didn't come out of their offices enough to ruin my great experiences. For the teachers and students, I give a 5-star A+. For the administrators, I would put them below average.


Posted April 12, 2008

Overall this school is pretty much ok. But, the administration has taken some actions that I feel they shouldn't have. For example, allowing High School students to eat lunch before Elementary students is totally wrong. Another thing is wanting to completely exempt 8th grade students from High School Marching Band because 'The high-schoolers will pick on them.' No they do not. Band is one of those things where people actually DO cooperate. We really DO need these 8th graders to be trained up by their Freshman year, and only 12 weeks in their 8th grade year isn't cutting it. Something else that bugs me is if your name isn't a very popular one or if you're in a class such as band or if your not in a sport of any type that parents, staff, and peers look down upon you. That's crap.

I am very disappointed in Hopewell-Loudon and it's leadership. Administration does not show any sort of leadership abilities. There is alot of bullying going on in the school with little to no disipline in regards to the bullies. If your last name is not recognized in this school, you are shunned and treated in a completely different manner than kids with last names that are recognized. Even most of the teachers get in on this little game. The school is not kept clean and the environment is not appropriate for young children. Teachers do not keep their kids under control, for the most part, again, unless it is someone with an unrecognized name, then the disipline is above and beyond what is necessary. Not impressed in the least.

My children attend this school and for the most part really do like it. Most of the teachers are very helpful and willing to take the extra time needed to help. I to have a problem with the way some students are treated compared to others. I am not fond of the 'card pulling' because I don't think it really helps. I also do not agree in the way the school calculates final grades on the report cards.

I am a parent of two kids in hopewell -loudon school. I sent them to this school for a better education and better enviroment. I am currently not impressed with the school and I am thinking about pulling my kids out. Yes there are some wonderful teachers but the majority I am not impressed by. I do not feel there is much disipline at the school either. There is alot of kids being bullied and nothing is done. And if your last name isn't recognized the parents and teachers shun you.(not all but the majority) Overall I am not happy with the school.

I go to this school, and this is my opinion on it. There is no disipline, people can really do whatever they want, teachers are too involved with their classes, so not much gets done. It's pretty clean for the most part. But they could do a lot better. Right now, there is chaos about the new ogt tests, and teachers are teaching us stuff that we've already learned in elementary. And some of the teachers do everything their own way....with 3 projects for one student at once...I am one of those students, while othere sutdents in the same class only have to do one. It's very unfair. I hate it. The staff at the school is awful. They are very closed minded about everything, and allow the students to put them down all the time with constant rude comments. But that is mostly the behivor of the same few students.

I like the school for the most part. Some of the teaching supplies are very limited. The school is pretty clean. The buses come late usually so you are usually tardy for your first class. Lunches are ok.

Hopewell-Loudon is a very poor school in my opinion. I attend this school at the time but I am very disapointed in the school. I do think that with the right administration that this school could be turned around but until then my opinion will not change. The school is dirty, inappropriate, and very disfiting to all. They need to remodle and/or build a new school! Come take a look for yourself!

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.

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.

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.
