As soon as I am able to I am removing my kids from this school the kids are extremely violent and they award kids for attending school rather than good grades or honor roll---my twin daughters are the best in their class in reading and they get a certificate and a failing student who attends every day won scooter/ bike and helmet---sending the wrong message----I dont believe in telling all of the negatives there are some positives but the negatives crush the positives. There is no consequences for children's actions even when we went through teachers and principal, we had to come up with the solution ourselves and they dont pay us. Its crowded and sharing classes not enough teachers its got to change or my daughters and son will be in charter or private school next year or asap. Ms. Rea I will vouch for her she should be running the building so far from the staff I encountered, she is good. The Kindergarten teachers are ok, playgrounds need to be more secure so children cant beat each other up so much---its ran like a jail.

Friendly staff BUT I am moving my son out of this school to a private school. He is getting hit and picked on by kids on the bus. We talked to bus driver, Principal and secratary. No one has fixed the problem. Not to mention they never communicate with us at all. We do not know school closings til the day before. They did a health screening in the fall and I just got a letter about it, saying my son is obese and has normal hearing (he was diagnosed by childrens with significant hearing loss-but they say its normal?) and the school nurse said he has misaligned teeth_He is 6 they are still falling out genious, not to mention you are NOT a dentist. I DO NOT APPROVE OF THIS SCHOOL WHATSOEVER! He is being pulled out IMMEDIATELY!! They school plays are poor quality-shows teachers really dont work with them, his teacher lost his homework folder and blamed it on him then wrote to RETURN THIS : on his papers for weeks. RUDE!

I enjoyed my daughter's teacher, and most of the staff there were nice. BUT! I would not recommend a child to attend this school. I am moving her out of this school and into a private school. The children there are not disciplined correclty what so ever. My daughter was never a problem and her hair was cut, pencils thrown at her. The students had fights, sent home in KINDERGARTEN. What is wrong with this picture? The teachers (excluding my daughters) need to pay more attention to these students. One afternoon, I arrived around lunch time and the teacher supervising was consistently yelling at all the students, they were not allowed to talk or get up. It was lunch time people, and you were talking about Pre-K through 2nd graders. Yelling does not solve anything, they understand things but this is not right.

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.
