—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 1, 2008

Teachers set very poor examples, ..no 'please', no 'thank you' , dress like slobs. Teaching practice very poor.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 4, 2006

Quality of academic's for Kindergarten I give a 10+. Music, I feel they are way to basic and the teacher is just there for a job. I wish there was more parent involvement. However, the parents that are there do I great job in trying to make it a better place. The Kindergarten teachers give 150% and are worth their weight in gold.

Posted January 13, 2006

I think that most of the teachers are very good at teaching their students and responding to parents phone calls or notes to the teachers. Also my son's teacher is always willing to meet with the parents pertaining to their children's progress which makes me glad that she is his teacher.

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.
