Posted January 7, 2013

My daughter started in this school last year and she loves it. Her first grade teacher Mrs. Hirzel, is one of the best teachers I have ever seen. Responsible, sweet, fair and goes beyond to help her students learn. She is so committed to the school that even though she retired last year, she volunteers this year and comes each week to help out. And most of its teachers are good teachers, the staff is always working hard to do activities for the kids. Security is not a problem here, never seen anything out of order. Families are more integrated to the school that in other schools in the same district. Staff and families work hard to move school from effective grade to excellent . Only concern, district cut funds on school and they don't have a nurse, art,music,gym and media class were also cut from budget. Hope the city invest all the $$$ the casino is paying in taxes to improve the schools. Overall I recommend this school.

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.
