i love this school! im in 8th grade and they provide good academics and the teachers are awesome, but still keep you on track. i love the trips, and overall, its pretty much the best school ever. im gonna miss this place!


Posted August 17, 2010

As a recent graduate of Old Brooklyn Middle, I am happy with my experience as a whole. I noticed thought that the farther and farther we came from the former Montessori curriculum, the farther and farther we came from the great reputation that we had built. People used to come from across town to come to school here. Pros: safe, relaxed, clean, rated excellent, good academics, strong discipline, great trips (though they do seem lessinging as time goes on...) Cons: not diverse, some people deal with lots of bullying, cliqish, teaches "to the test," many inexperienced teachers, trouble adressing students individual needs, very unorganized. All in all, this is a good school, and one of the best in the neighborhood, but deffinatly not what it used to be.

As a graduate of this school allow me to say that it is indeed excellent. One of my classmates posted a very untruthful review out of spite and I would like to appologize for their attempt to miss-inform.

as a graduate of this school I can honestly say that I was very well prepared for high school, and I always felt like more than a student in the calssrooms. I felt as if the teachers really cared about helping me succeed in life and to further me as far as I could into my academic career.

My child is very happy at Old Brooklyn Community Middle School. She likes the great 7th and 8th grade trips the best. Last year, she went to Virginia Beach and D.C. This year, her class is going to NYC. The teachers are intelligent and easy for her to communicate with. She's well-prepared for high 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.
