My Grandaughter attends Almira school, when I visit for activities, I find the students out of control, and the overall appearance of the facility, and grounds appauling. The conditions are not suitable for children to learn properly, and to instill an overall respect for themselves or their community. Someone needs to step in and improve this environment for these students, they are our future!

I am very displeased with this school it started off to be a very pleasent experience when my child was younger but now they have added higher grades which makes it very hard for teacher involvement, there are only 2 after school activities which I am aware of, but a few of the teachers there are exceptional, the safety of the school is another issue a lot of fighting with minimal intervention and the condition of the school is deplorable they have no doors on the bathrooms for the children, no soap in the stalls and certain areas of the building looks as if it is falling apart.

I would like to say that I am very dissatisfied with this school. To start the classrooms are overcrowded, one teacher to 36 children. That alone is affecting my childs education due to the number of unruly children in the class. The school is never secure the doors are always unlocked,you can walk in the school at anytime and not be stopped to ask where you are going. There are not enough staff to keep the children under control the lunch room is so loud it has to be disturbing the classrooms. The parking lot is unorganized a child will eventually get hurt with the way they have the cars pulling in there. If I had another choice in where I could put my children I would do it immediatly!!!!

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.
