My son moved here from Lancaster High School, where there were fights everyday, and he felt like he was just a number, he loves Carroll, and has really found his place. It seems like it is one of the few schools in ohio that is very church related with such normal, down to earth people. It is the only school in the county that has NEVER had the sheriff called there for any reason.

My son graduated from Carroll 2 years ago and is in college. He was not prepared for college, but Im hearing this from cousins who kids graduated from other school districts. Thats the painful fact- but from every school district-Not just Carroll. Parents need to take a little responsibility in that also. A school can only do so much! Carroll is a great small town school- which for me quite frankly is the only way! My son attended 1st thru 2nd grade at another school near Columbus and was simply a number- not in Carroll. People take a look at the county and state testing scores that will tell you how we stack up against the rest. The only negative thing that I will say is the buildings are horrible. Maybe if there were more people from the community that visited our schools, a levy would have past alot sooner!

Great teachers, but out of date buildings due to lack of funding. Anyone who WANTS to succeed can do so easily here. Some of the sports programs are great, while others are sub-par, its dependent entirely on which program you choose.

This school has been horrible to communicate with. Children are struggling and never seem to get out of the hole that they dig. It seems as if the teachers just pass them to get by. Their online comuncation is poor at best, teachers do not initate when a child is in trouble, they just let it go.

This school does a poor job of comunicating to parents when their children are in trouble. They do a poor job of preparing children for college. There is a poor selection of classes. The facilities are horrible.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 30, 2008

Shameful facilities and limited resources such as class offerings, but my kids felt like their teachers knew them and were interested in their education. One school building was just condemed, and another is probably on its way because it was built in 1912. Levy's haven't passed for the last 6 tries not because the administration hasn't informed voters. We have very little tax base in the area except for residential and landowners who hold a large share of properties. Funding needs to be fixed by the state because we can't let our schools deteriorate like this. If I were thinking about moving to this school district, I would not because of the poor school facilities.

Our school is falling apart. We dont have enough room, everything is broke or outdated. I just feel like im not getting the high school experince there.

Great school kind teachers small lack of big technological resources but great use of what they do have. Parental involvment is high if the parents so do choose whether to act, but they are always notified.

Posted April 12, 2007

Good school, with even better teachers. To bad the community doesn't support them more.
—Submitted by a student


Posted February 25, 2006

Level of parent involvement low due to lack of effort on administration/teachers. Small town, political climate.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted December 8, 2004

Bloom-Carroll does a very poor job of preparing its students for college. More resources and better teachers, especially in science and math are needed. A very small minded school in an painfully small minded town.

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.
