I dont have a review of this school, but I was thinking of sending my 14 year old son there for his freshmen year. I dont know much about the school, so I would like some feed back.
If you are not concerned about the quality of education that your child receives then Withrown University would be the school for you. Cincinnat Public Schools as a whole is a Joke if you child does not attend Walnut Hills, Clark Montessori or SCPA then they truly are not being educated. My daughter freshman year the students did not received text books that they could take home. Homework was expected to be completed during class time because "the kids would not return it the next day if it were assigned to take home. My daughters history class had handout copies of the book but no actual book to study from. Teacher are very deaming towards student. Oh yeah lets not for get the allogations of cheating on the OGT test under the direction of the wonderful Great Sharon Johnson. So Investigate and think twice before making this choice.
My son attended Withrow University two years ago and I loved it. Now I have been hearing that things are not the same. There has been a lack of teaching and leadership.
Wonderful School. I have great memories from this school. There is plenty of activites to do. Excellent school spirit. Ms.Johnson's door is always open and she never denies any student for talking and advice. I feel safe in this school. The school is also very strict with same gender clasess and uniform. This is a great school and I would definitly prefer parents to send their children to this school.
I transferred my son from Roger Bacon High Scool to Withrow University. That had to be one of the best decisions I've ever made. Not speaking bad of Roger Bacon but at the time I needed to do what was best for my son. I love everything Withrow University has to offer. From the academics/dress code/non co-ed classes/to the extra curriclum activtes. Ms. Johnson is wonderful!!!!! Her door is always open. Withrow University staff I can't say enough. You're the best!!!!! My son will be graduating this year (class of 08) and it makes me proud to know that just like his mom (who's an alumni) he'll have everlasting memories of people that touched his life. Again, thank you for all you do:-) Ms. Smith Parents get involve/stay involve
