This is a great school. They embrace kids with learning disabilities. Teachers are great and very understanding. Kids attending this school are very special, very sensitive and very creative. Not many resources are available for kids with learning disabilities and attention issues. The few Special Education teachers they have go above and beyond, but more special ed teachers are needed to properly serve the kids and work with the kids as much as possible in the class environment.

This school is outstanding in the quality of artistic preparation and also academic preparation of the students. It is full of life and positive energy. It really gives the students what I like to call a well rounded preparation. My daughter says this school is like her second family for her.

This is the best all-around school in the area. The teachers and staff go above and beyond for the students. The academics are on par with Walnut Hills. They expose the children to many opportunities children usually don't have. My only complaint is that sometimes it takes them too long to weed out the riff raff.

I love this school and the arts. I'm proud my child is a student here. There are many wonderful teachers, staff and students at SCPA. Unfortunately, there are also adults and children who display unbridled, poor behavior that negatively impacts others. In reality, the overwhelming desire to portray "perfection" does not benefit this school or any other school. The public is keenly aware there are problems everywhere. Our school will truly excel when honest efforts are made to prevent, address and resolve problems.

I chose to send my son to SCPA and chose to pay out of district tuition for 6 years because of my belief in allowing students to be able to express their thoughts in a creative way. Schools are consumed in just passing tests for state funding. This school is for the creative and artistic child and very accepting to a diverse group of students from all backgrounds. It is a public school but has a small intimate feeling. You see students smile the majority of the time. This is a special school for the children who do not fit into the normal public school because of their creative minds. They have majors in the different arts and the students are well trained in their art programs. Many students graduate with scholorships. This is now a K-12 art school. Students who apply must audition and have good grades to get in at the 4th grade level. They can audition and the school staff looks for creative possibilities in all the arts. The only downside would be the students ability to be able to focus on the academics. The student puts alot of hours into the arts.

As an art school, SCPA is outstanding! It is mind-boggling how far advanced art students are upon graduation. THAT SAID, I would rate the academics only mediocre at best. The students are not challenged and expectations are low, particularly for the high school level. There are a few gems in the teaching staff but my children had several teachers who uninspiring at best. I have another child who attended a high performing academic school so I could easily see the difference. Art students also deserve a high quality academic education. We should expect both.

What I don't like is children getting picked on and then getting the blame for when they yell out because it hurts (when the other individual stomps their hands, or whatever). However, that child will not speak up for fear of making things worse on themselves. This has been going on for sometime. And, I'm sorry but I have to call it reverse racism. The child in question does not call it that and refuses to be a racist or have anyone around to be that way. I am very proud of her for her beliefs and she is only 9 years old. I know that she works very very hard for her grades and got her first F ever which broke her heart and caused her to be grounded indefinitely but gets no help from her daddy, so that makes it hard on her too. She's had a tough life but doesn't complain and is full of love for others if you get to know her. I believe five hours of homework is an awful lot for a fourth grader which is what she has almost daily. However, I do know that you all are an excellent school and hope all works out for her.

They teach the arts to children expanding the bounds of the imagination.

I attended SCPA 7th-12th grade. It is an excellent school with terrific programs. The student body is very accepting of all persons and the school helps to foster creativity and proffesionalism. Both skills vital to all careers not just in the arts. Also SCPA has very good academics to go along side the arts.

Funding is a big problem for this school. Until they get a new school one needs to be accepting of the somewhat shoddy facilities. Performances are awesome. Student body is accepting of individuality. Most of the teachers are excellent but as anywhere there are a few that shouldn't be teaching. Students must audition to gain acceptance, but as the school receives much needed funding based solely on student enrollment, they are not entirely selective and take most applicants regardless of talent. There were 3 different principals there during my child's four years of attendance. More parents need to step up and help. Elementary (through 8th) dismissal time is late and most kids don't get home till almost 5. This is a Cincinnati public school, free to all who reside in the city but open to others with tuition. Interview arts teachers and really find out what they are about!

I attended SCPA from the 7th grade through the 12th. I really enjoyed it. The dance program was great. Though I did not continue dancing as a career, I really enjoyed it. I plan on sending my children there when they are old enough.

Posted January 6, 2005

I have two children at SCPA and have been very pleased with their experiences. They love that they have their arts classes EVERY DAY not just once or twice a week. That is a big plus. In addition, the academics are very good college prep and quite rigorous. I find the teachers are very good as well, and really care about the students' successes. I know a couple kids who came in with some difficulties with certain academic subjects, and the school has arranged extra tutoring to help them catch up. For our family it is a very good fit, a gem of a school that will enrich our children creatively while preparing them for college. I am not sure if they will pursue arts-related careers or not, but feel that the arts exposure is a wonderful aspect of the school.

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


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.

The different student groups are identified by the Ohio Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

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.
