Cedarwood is an amazing school! It's the only school my daughter has known. Mrs. Reed is amazing!!!! She really understands the children. My daughter adores her. She loves her teachers, she gets mad when she wakes up on Saturday morning and can't go to school. All four of my children will attend Cedarwood no matter what, I wouldn't trst any other school.

Two of my sons are in the Eclipse classroom at Cedarwood Elementary Alternative School. This is a wonderful program. They have the opportunity to think creatively and are encouraged to think 'outside the box'. I commend all the staff members and especially Principal Reed, who show compassion through fair but tough discipline. I like the curriculum and enjoy the teacher/student interaction. I would rate this school a 9, only because the menu needs to be improved upon.

My children and neices have went to this school for 18 years now. With this I feel i am very knowledgable about the school.This last year I feel has been a very negative year for the students and parents alike. One there have been way to many changes in the school in a very fast time. To many principal changes, and not enough encourangment for parent involvement. I personally do not like many of the changes, but the teachers are the best in Columbus. This is the only reason I have not pulled my children out of the school.The principal Mrs. Reed does not seem very personable to me, nor interested in how the staff or the parents feel the school is being run. This is only my opion!I do miss Mr. Graves and wish somehow he could come back & make us the most wanted in school again.........

I think cedarwood is a great school. Mrs. Weiss is a great ECLIPSE teacher. It is a 4th and 5th grade class room. Mr. Hower the gym teacher is the best teacher there. He is really good with kids. He teaches very well!

Cedarwood is an excellent choice for your elementary school student. The principal, Mr. Graves, and his staff care about the students on an educational level as well as teaching them to strive for personal growth. I am truly satisfied with the education my daughter has received the three years she has been at this school (3rd through 5th grades) If you are looking for a quality education and a sense of teamwork as well as your child learning to make responsible choices look no further, Cedarwood is for you and your child. One final note, get involved. Join the PTA and attend the student led conferences. Be an active part of your childs education. It's one of the best decisions you will ever make. Pamela Fields

I think that cedarwood is a great school. I have 3 sons that attend and they love it. They come home with very helpful learning home work. The teachers are very incouraging and helpful to both the parents and the children.

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.
