Ratings

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.

The Ohio Local Report Card evaluates the academic performance of Ohio’s schools based on various components including student achievement, student progress, gap closing, graduation rate, K-3 literacy, and how well high school students are prepared for success. Schools receive a grade for various metrics within each component, where the highest rated schools in the state receive an A and the lowest an F. Beginning in August 2015, schools and districts will receive an overall grade, which combines the component grades.

About the test

In 2012-2013 Ohio used the Ohio Achievement Assessment (OAA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The OAA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Ohio. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
