My daughter goes to Fort Hayes and I love the level of academic expectations. She is required to work and must work hard. The only area that is difficult is the lack of extracurricular activities. They need to focus on bringing more activities that are social as well as academic.

My daughter graduated from Fort Hayes Education Center for grades 9-12. She loved the school and her teachers. The teachers and guidance counselor were wonderful and encoraged her to be all that she can be. she graduated in 2003, second in her class as a salutatorian. The teachers and gudiance counseler encouraged her to take advantage of the post secondary education and she did. She attended Columbus State Community College while in high school and this allowed her to enter college with 29.5 credit hours. She is now in her second year of college and is a Junior by credit hours. So this is a wonderful school that has wonderful opportunities in academics and arts.

My daughter went to Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center for grades 9-12 and is now in college. I thought the school tried very hard to provide an education in both the arts and in academics, and encourage students to excel in high school. They were also very good about supplying post-secondary education counseling and helping students apply for colleges, and obtain scholarships, grants and financial aid. I would recommend this school highly.

This school is outstanding because of its combination of college prep curriculum and vocational training. The school is also very parent friendly in that when you child is a student there, you will have access to their grades via the internet. Whenever a grade is updated for my son, I receive an email notification. Being a single mother, it is very difficult at times, to take off of work to visit the school physically and being able to keep up with my son's grades and school activities via email is wondreful! I am also able to communicate with his teachers via email!

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.

No Value-Added data was reported for this school.

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.

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.
