Posted February 12, 2013

There is a lack of communication between teachers/parents. The secretary is RUDE beyond belief, and seems hassled by anyone who stops in the office for information regarding their child. I don't think that type of negative attitude is acceptable for someone who works around children, and is responsible for greeting guests. As a parent, I'm not satisfied with my child's learning experience here, for one, my child never has homework. This is not a school I would like my child to continue to attending, if you value your child's education, I would not recommend this school at all.

i am a community partner in Madisonville and feel John P Parker is an excellent school with the leadership of the school's principal


Posted March 1, 2011

My child attends this school but this will be his last week there. So far he has been there for the 2010-11 school year and so far he has not been on not one field trip. They dont make learning a fun experience. Staff seem to have no point, they leave kids sitting around, negative attitudes and this makes the school a negative atmosphere. I would NOT recommend your child to this school.

I am a college student who was recently placed in John P. Parker (Dec. 2009) for a 20 hour field experience. I left the school each day feeling physically ill, my nerves were shot and I felt so sorry for the students. Every teacher I came into contact with SCREAMED all day, there was no positive discipline or positive redirection. I was only there for 20 hours and I never want to go back, I can not imagine spending grades K-8 in that building. The building itself is very nice, but the teachers are flirting with verbal abuse. I have told everyone I know about this experience. I would encourage anyone who can get their children out of that school and into a charter school to do so.


Posted October 6, 2009

I love John P Parker school because it is community driven. The staff is willing to reach out to the neighborhood and participate whenever requested. Our community is one of the most diverse in the City of Cincinnati and the future calls for diversity. Our school have gone through a rough period, but is fianlly returning to a school that our citizens can be proud of.

There is a serious lack of discipline in this school...they do not enforce their own rules, especially the uniform policy. Good students who are ready to learn must sit and wait while the teachers 'babysit' other students or deal with students who have behavioral problems beyond the scope of a regular classroom, much less the overcrowded one in which they are working.

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.
