I believe if this school had strong leadership, it could be a much better school. Although the principal's children attend another school not in the district it's hard for her to raise the bar for her staff. Children are withdrawing from the school because of the lack of leadership and professionalism. It's a good idea to grade the teachers as well as the principal because they are pulling a very healthy paycheck, and children are suffering in their studies. What a poor choice of school, I would recommend a new principal and get rid of those teachers who children are suffering because they are doing a true dis-service to our future leaders of tomorrow. Eric Gordon needs to pay close attention to this school and their faculty because they always seems to fly under the radar.

i go to that school and i love it it gives you all the information you need to know to go to the next grade


Posted February 13, 2009

we had just moved into the area from Euclid. My daughter loves her teacher and his experience he brings to the classroom and his concern for the students. But she had to get use to the disrespectfulness of the students towards her, other students, and teachers. She is only in the fourth grade some of the students act as if they are in the 8/9th grade. I do not agree with the fact that the schools have placed younger students with older students in a single bldg. (K-8) this was the worst thing they could have done. I feel that we have lost our children. We need to get back to the basic, by teaching our children respect for each other, and adults. This has to be the job of the school and the parents, so lets get buszy!!!!!!

The teachers at this school is a bunch of caring teachers that a person can not find at another school. The teachers pushes our children to do the best they can. It is a crying shame that the ceo cannot keep this school open or, not trying to keep this school open. It just prove to me that money is more important then our children education.

Any child would benefit by attending this school. The staff at Douglas MacArthur have changed my negative idea of Cleveland Public Schools, too bad it may close,I am very dissapointed! I am the mother of a child with Down syndrome and just any school is not the right placement for her.

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.
