Wonderfull well maintained and controlled building. The staff seems to be on one accord which makes for a great environment.

Posted February 26, 2009

3 of my children have attended Fairmoor. The school is state of the art. The teachers are caring and professional. The population is varied with all levels attending. My experience and my children's experience has been excellent. Problems are addressed quickly and with appropriate concern. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants their child to be in a positive, effective, learning environment.

My daughter has attented Fairmoor since the first grade. We have really had a great time there! We got to witness the rebuild and opening of the new building. I am a very involved parent with my childs schooling. Her teachers have been great and the office staff is just AWESOME including the principal. If I need more from the teachers they give it. Overall the exprience that my daughter and I have had with this school have been great!

My son attends fairmoor. I will admit that they do need to work on some, but overall it is a good school. I like how it is set up. I like the fact that the principal has control of her school. I would love to see all of our school have monthly or semi-annual meetings concerning the all schools. Not just the one's in their own district. We should be learning from each other instead of trying to things by ourselves. We can't blame everything on the schools. All schools would be better if more parents are involved. I can understand our busy schedules that we have to keep in order to run our own households, but once a month day or evening.

Both my kids go to Fairmoor Elementary. They came to this school from Whitehall City Schools. It was a major adjustment. Fairmoor's Office Staff are great and so is the principal. But there is alot needs improvement. Start programs for reading. Have study groups. Right now they have a tutoring program. Fairmoor Elementary is no where near Whitehall City Schools standards. They may want to learn what Whitehall is doing to improve themself.

About the tests


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.

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.
