The school is small, but has a great staff. The students learn in an environment that has a small teacher-student ratio. The staff disseminates knowledge through varied learning styles. The students have an opportunity to learn outside the box at Premier.

Premier Academy of Ohio has turned over a "new leaf" under the direction of Ms. H. Green, Premier has become more based on educational instruction with our students. We are very proud to have her aboard. Random students seek out Ms. H. Green because they know that she will help them in any way possible. I look forward to working under the direction of Ms. H. Green for the school years to come. Keep up the good work Ms. Green.

I graduated from Premier Academy of Ohio (class of 2011 ) and attended Premier since 9th grade. This school has taught me alot throughout my years. I learned to persevere, to stay commited to my goals and to encourage others who believe they cnt achieve. I love this school as if it was my second family and if you dnt believe Premier Academy is for your child then thats too bad but if you do think it sounds great we take all enrollment with a birth certificate, Proof of residency( utility bill or rental lease) and social security

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


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.

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.
