I'm joining Oyler High School and wont know anything about it, so i hope it will be a good school year.


Posted August 15, 2011

i hated oyler , the teachers never helped ! they didnt want to help they would just say look in the book ! if i understood the book i wouldnt beasking you . there so lazy there .people get suspended when they get attacked in a fight ! like they can control who trys to fight them . and the principle is so mean at times . he ignores you when your trying to talk to him and he doesnt take care of problems he says hes going to and i am so glad im leaving even though Mr.corey was a great teacher . the best one there. hes the only teacher that keeps kids under control. honestly i think he diserves a better job !

I went to this school all of my life. I had problems but they were taken care of at that moment. The principal is a really good man and he does his best. It's not in the best neighborhood. I know because I've lived right across from the school at that moment. I don't think the reason why everyone says Oyler is so horrible is because of the staff. It's because of the students and parents. I've loved this school so much and I cried for a week when I left. I would go back in a heartbeat if I could. The principal is a great, fun loving, and very considerate and loving man. Oyler is not only a school, it's a family that cares about everyone!

My children go to Oyler and I have never had a neg. problem there. People want to talk bad about the school but look at the ratings parent involvement is the least. What does that tell you. If I ever have a problem it is taken care of that day. I always can talk to the teachers and the teacher and parent relationship is awsome. My children know I will listen to them but I also will have the teachers or other party side also. The sports are just getting started so that is bad for one of my children but good for the younger one. A school can not be the best if the parents are not involved. Keep up the great work Oyler Staff your great.

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.
