The district is finally beginning to make some changes at East. They have placed a new principal in the building, Mr. Woods. I have been there and it is a totally different atmosphere. The students are in class and the teachers are teaching. Its was a well needed changed. They needed someone to lead the school who cares about the over all being of the students, and not someone there just to collect her check. They finally did something right.

Having been a parent of students graduated and still attending East. I can say the same problems exist, no parental involvement. There are several teachers that dont care about the students and because the parents are not involved get away with mistreating the students. I believe that East is a school that the district and superintendent totally ignore and dont care about those students. A change needs to take place, there needs to be more involvement from the superintendents office to see what goes on at East on a daily basis!!!

I have 2 sons attending East, one will be graduating this year. Being an Alumni of East High I've watched things go downhill in some areas, however over the past 4 years I've seen great improvement. The administration and the staff work together with 1 common goal, success of the children. A family atmosphere (it takes a village to raise a child) that gives the students a since of pride in themselves as well as in their school. I truely believe the best is yet to come.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Ohio used the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) to test students in grade 10 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. State averages displayed on public school profiles include public schools only. State averages displayed on private school profiles include private schools only. The OGT is a high school graduation requirement for public schools and chartered private schools. The OGT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Ohio. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

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.

No Value-Added data was reported for this 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.

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.
