I started with Sayler Park School in 1972 and I love it. 4 grown children and 5 grandchildren went here. I now have 4 more are attending here now. It better every year. Staff and classes are great.

They are a great small town school where everyone knows everyone.

I have a daughter in third grade and am very disappointed in the way my daughter is being taught. It seems as if the school is only concerned with teaching the bare minimum for the majority of students to pass whatever test the school is concerned about, and not taking time to ensure the students understand what is being taught.

We have a daughter that was an A student that is now graduated and a son with learning disabilities that is in the 7th grade. They both spent their elementary years in Sayler Park School. I cannot stress enough what a wonderful experience it has been. Both children have a great love for school. The teachers and staff are caring and give the encouragement that each child requires. They are very open to working as a team with parents and have no issue with taking the time to keep communication flowing. Although the school has many students, it has the feel of a smaller school. They teachers and staff know all of the students/parents by name so you never feel that your child is just a number. I would recommend this school for any child and I thank the teachers and staff for all they have done.

I have had a child in this school for the past 17 years and to me they try there best to work with all the kids. Even if they do have problems they help the best they can. The school system itself has fallen short of our kids not the teachers. Maybe somtimes it's the parents and not the teachers. Some parents need to let the teachers teach and not always blame the teachers for what the kids do.

My childern are now in first and second grade and been there since kindergarden. I think that they are doing something right if my kids are happy to go to school every day. Keep up the good work.

I am an 8th grade student at Sayler Park and i have been going there since Kindergarten. The teachers are great, they try to help the students the best they can. I know all the teachers there and the teachers look at your children beyond their disabilities(if they have any). Although, it's not the richest school, the school staff is always having fund raisers to try to help better the school on the outside, but the teachers on the inside couldn't better themselves anymore. They truly car about your child!

This school has done practically nothing to aid my children with learning. They have made it worse on my children and have retained both in the sixth grade three times. They really need to be investigated for their poor treatment of troubled students. If can be avoided, I would suggest not enrolling any child with any problems, behavioral or academic, in this school because they are of no help.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 14, 2004

I have had two of my children attend this school for the last three years. This school has been, by far, one of the worst schools my children have attended. When they say 'no child is left behind', well at this school, if the child has any problems in school that child is left far behind and given up on, with no help.

Posted February 1, 2004

This school tries very hard to meet the needs of children with learning disabilities. If your child is meeting goals, this school does nothing to boost them forward.

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.
