My name is channing goins, I used to go to school here. Hartford is a verry good school and a verry good education and a wonderful athletic department . I used to play football back inb2009

I have been a teacher at Hartford Middle School for four years. I have the priviledge of working with the best students in the world. They are hard workers and a pleasure to educate. I feel extremely bad regarding the false words that are spoken about my students school, parents, and community. The students are the same as all students in every school, every school has a range of students from challenging to stars. The parents and community collaborate and work hard for the sake of the students. The teachers are committed, are more than excellent, and are blessed to have a visionary who is a wise team player as a principal. If you are unsure of the strong leadership and teaching that goes on at Hartford, check out the state report card. There lies the truth. Hartford is a project based interdisciplinary learning environment. We should be rated more than a 3 out of 10. You are invited to come to Hartford and see a place where leaders of the 21st century are being developed. Thanks for sharing.

Hartford Middle school has ok academic programs and music,art, and other extracurricular activites. I dont think that the parents are involved enough. I went there for two years. Its not the school thats bad its the out of control kids. I would not suggest for anyone to go here because the kids are uncontroleable and your kid goes there it might mess up there grades or even worse. Im sorry if anyone disagrees with me but i had to put up with no education at all for two years straight because by the time the teachers sent all the kids that were acting up class would be over and they would give you homework you knew nothing about. In my opnion please dont send your kids there.

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.
