eventhough the school is a public school- my children love their school- it is up to us as the parents to do more and be more accessable to our children and the educators so that the children can be more productive as well as parents, students, staff, and all be on one accord

I used to teach at this school 2 years ago. There are great teachers there, before the majority of them got laid off. The principal was great to work for, however, discipline was soft because of the district's stance. Specials teachers were great. PE, and ART were very good. Media center dosen't have any books. A mass majority of the students feel they can do whatever they like. Don't teach in cleveland!

The school lacks solid leadership and parent involvement. The teachers are very laxed in the areas of teaching.

Well, i do not even know where to begin. First, in the defense of the teachers. Many children in this building come to school with no supplies and a majority of the time the teacher buys them. Teachers also have to face many different attitude problems from not only the children but the parents. If a teacher discplines a child in this school the parent becomes upset and yells at the teacher and this is really sad. It is almost like the children do not have to take repsonsbility for their actions. Now that is a disservice, how will they adjust to authority as adults? Not repsonding to authority lands all people in one of two places, dead or in jail. What a future. I really believe excuse making needs to stop at this school. It really is time for the parents and students to shape up or ship out!

Thanks to the experience at Jamison I currently home school my child. The teacher didn't seem to have a interest in teaching the children anything educational. There were children in the classroom that clearly had learning disabilities and needed special attention. The teacher nor administration seemed interested in finding help for the students. The administration and teachers that I had contact with are certainly doing a great dis-service to the children that were sent to that school to obtain an educational foundation. There was very little parent involvement. It was very frustrating to see the children in the this class not being taught anything and knowing the teacher and staff were aware of the issues and don't seem to want to change the situation.

This School has an administration that wants to try to get the school together initially, but the follow through is horrible, the discipline issues are very large, and I feel that the school isn't big enough to accomodate the 824 students that are currently enrolled...the parent involvement is slim to none. I look foward to moving out of state so that my children can try to recieve a quality education.

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.
