Locust Corner Elementary is a wonderful school that I am proud to have my children attend. We have 6 children; 3 that have already gone through Locust Corner, 2 which are currently still attending, and one which will attend there in a few years. I couldn't think of a better place for my children to be when they are not home with me. The principle and teachers are very positive, supportive, and caring. I am a member of the PTO and enjoy being involved in the great things that PTO does for the betterment of our school and the students. I would not even consider another school for my children. Locust Corner Elementary is the place for us. ~Shannon Stapleton~ Mother of 6 past, present, and future LCE students

My two oldest children attended Locust Corner Elementary from 2000-2004 and had a wonderful experience. We then moved out of state and returned to Cincinnati 3 years later. We were so impressed with LCE that we moved back to the same area so my youngest could attend as well. The principal, staff and teachers are caring, professional and excellent educators. In fact, my daughter is on a full academic high school scholarship, much of which I attribute to her early years at LCE. Not only does the LCE staff teach our kids well, but they truly care about each family. Whenever there is a problem, ( death, natural disaster, financial, just to name a few) the whole staff steps in to help in any way possible. I have lived in four states and sent my kids to many schools. But I could not think of a better place to send my kids than Locust Corner Elemenatary! Andy and Ann Block, proud parents of 3 children at LCE

LCE is a 'looks good on the outside but horrible on the inside' type of school. My child has attended there for 4 years. I am moving this year do to the events that the school takes when dealing with children. The principal will tell you to your face that every child counts, but if you get a teacher that has a personality difference than your child, the principal will stand behind the teachers and discipline your child over silly stuff (even agreed on by the board of education, but nothing done or handle on their behave). When taken to the board of education, the director of pupils tried to pretend to want to help, then passed it on to the Super, and he laughed it off. The issue with this school is the bullying comes from the stuck up staff, and lets not mention the amount of times I have attended PTO meetings to hear the parents speak of how the staff has told stories of other children and their misfortune. It hurts me to know that in this day and age we still have a school like this. If you can I would try another distruict!!!

Locust Corner Elementary is the best school in the world. The teachers there give so much love and support. The school is so neat and clean and a safe environment. I went there through kindergarten-5th grade. I moved to Florida once 5th grade ended. Anyways when I move back to Ohio and have kids I am sending them to LCE.

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.
