This school is now Middleburg Heights Junior High School and I have never been to a worse school! They have the students so packed into the building that no one can move in the hallways and you can never get to the lockers or into the classrooms. it takes me alittle over an hour to get home from school and they have our buses so packed full that there is not even 1 empty spot and sometime there are not even enough seats. The WORST school I have ever been too

I loved Midpark when I was there. Midpark holds so many rewardind oppertunites; with Polaris Career Center, Tri-C, and Baldwin Wallace, as Post Secondary Options. I love Midpark High school. The teachers there not only teach the subject in wich they are paid. They teach so much more from right and wrong, and healthy (and the best) lifestyle choices! Midpark is by all means enemies with Berea high school and when it comes down to any sporting events the entire school shows their school spirit!

The education received here prepared my children to be a success in college and life. It's too bad the levy failed and so much will have to be cut or paid for by the parents at a high rate. Most of the parents are very interested in their student and what is going on.. although they often hold up the I'm too busy card when asked to help. Keep up the good work.

This is a great school. Every now and then has some money problems but good school. Not too many problem students there. Teachers really try to teach students about that subject as well as right from wrong. Midpark is the school for your kids. We are bitter enemies with Berea and when it comes to the big football game, we get some major school spirit.

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.
