West Mound is an amazing school. Mrs. Moore-Tyler and al the staff work very hard to ensure the success of our children! EVERY CHILD COUNTS! And I love the school.

This used to be a great school. The new principal Mrs. Moore-Tyler is horrible. Her arrogance and straight face is not welcoming at all. The last straw of many for me was when she bought cupcakes for the whole school for HER birthday knowing it was against school policy. Horrible principal.

West Mound Elementary has room for improvement. There are limited extracurricular activities at sporatic intervals. The school lacks consistancey in these activities, as well as in classroom discipline. Intelligent children are not often challenged, nor are they encouraged to strive for their full potential. This is a school designed for the average. On the bright side, the principal is excellent. She is trying to better her school. Unfortunately, change and challenge is often met with resistance from those satisfied with the status quo, and from those who call for change yet are unwilling to experience the sacrifices involved.

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.
