When you child gets to 4th and 5th grade send them to another school. The teachers are not good with the kids (4&5). A lot of parents move when their kids hit this age. The teachers put their hands on the kids.

My son is in Kindergarten at Centerburg and absolutely loves it! We are so blessed to have him in a safe environment that genuinely cares about his development through education.

The quality of education is fantastic. My child who is in third grade, started in this school last year. She was below reading level and is now reading at a fourth grade level. They are great people to work with.

Centerburg Elementary offers a safe and nurturing environment for all children. Teachers take extra time to become more than a teacher for their students. I can't thnk of a better community to raise children!

Centerburg Elementary is a wonderful small school, where the teachers and administration not only take the time to know thier students, but also thier families. They respond quickly to concerns, keep parents very involved in the education process and make the learning experience a team effort. We are glad to be part of this system.

An excellent small school, where the teachers really do care about the students, and keep the parents involved in their education. The teachers are quick to address problems that arise and keep you informed of lessons being taught in the classroom.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Ohio used the Ohio Achievement Assessment (OAA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The OAA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Ohio. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

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.
