A grandchild is a precious gift from God and when one hears a child say that enjoy school and don't like it when they cant attend, those qualities make for some good ratings for that school and their staff. Its a tenacious job that teachers, principals and others are task to do in these days and times, I applaud all that considers education the highest priorty.

I have a daughter that has been attending Parkmoor since kindergarten. She is now going into the 3rd grade. I think the staff, principal and everyone involved there is wonderful. The school is old with no air but that doesn't stop the kid's from learning. The lesson plans are harder here than other schools so I know kids are getting a good education. There are many activities for the students to participate in as well as keeping the parents involved to. My brother attended there 30+ years ago and I'm looking forward to my two year old to start in a few years!

This is a nice neighborhood school where my daughter knows everyone but I am not satisfied. My daughter reports a lot of class time spent on discipline where too many chances are given. Her teacher adores her personality and is grateful for her good behavior and in turn does not notice my daughters deficits or areas of difficulty. Several times I find errors in assignments that she's been awarded 100% on. I know this school is not alone but the standard is so low to achieve anymore. I don't feel like our children in CPS are being prepared to compete in this world with children from private and suburban schools. It saddens me to write this, I am a product of Columbus Public Schools.

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.
