I was a student at this school in the late 80's. It seems nothing has changed. Some of the children are from the group home Cleveland Christian Home for Children. I was one of them. We were able to get away with pretty much anything. I honestly don't remember learning much of anything from this school. Sounds like things never changed. Please do NOT send your children here.

i had two children attend this school for a few it was an absolute nightmare the lunch staff treated the children like they were prisoners (though some of them certainly will be an a few short years) any problem we had the school staff acted like it was no big deal.we even had a teacher there tell us it was the worst school she had ever been at and suggested we try to get our kids out asap.we did now the chilren attend a school in north olmsted its amazing to see the difference in the childrens performance , attitude ,and overall happiness.thats the result of not letting the school turn into a ghetto babysitter.

do anything you have to but heep your kids out of this dump!! my kids wore the school unifoms just like the rules state but many of the other kids didnt .the staff would say its ok for them the parents cant afford it .we couldnt afford it either but if they didnt have the uniform they get sent home.the teachers were mostly incompetent they seemed to be waiting for better offers.the principle seems to change yearly i feel sorry for some of the kids there with this kind of education base the future looks dim for them.

My daughter's classmate pulled her belt off and said she was going to strangle my daughter, and the school, and the district did nothing. I am so disappointed in the district and the way they handle this sort of thing, I will just continue to pray about getting her out of the district and into a better 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.
