I love Oakmont. My son has been here for 3 years and I want to thank Mrs. Hatcher and the staff of Oakmont for all their love and dedication for the young people. Parent involvement can be a lot better. I'm dedicated to helping in anyway that I can as a parent to help build a stronger community and relationship between parent and teacher.

My children spent K-5 at Oakmont. I was extremely disappointed with the Math teachings this year, not to mention the fact that when students were or should have been studying and being tutored for OAA's, they were making quilts for Social Studies class. No tutoring was offered to prepare these children for Reading and Math. I don't feel my son was prepared to move onto the 6th grade in Math class, and the sad part is that he would have been sent to Yorktown, and passed along like some of the students there. I am happy to say that both my children went through Oakmont, and are looking for a better year at NEW schools. I really miss Mrs. Sandra Wilson, things were very different when she was principal. I would like to see all Columbus Schools utilize College students and interns from CSCC, and/or OSU.....I promise these interns would love the extra hours for their future endeavors.

The only problem I have with the school this year-- I think the teachers are afraid of the principal. Yes, Amber Hatcher is different than Sandy Wilson. The teachers probably think they have to prove themselves to her. There are some teachers who might be trying to hard and may be making the kids angry. Maybe if the lines of communication were open a little more wit hthe parents, kids would have more fun at school. Yes, it's a bit more cramped than it has been, but we'll make do.

my 2 kids went to oakmont from k-5 grade, and i was on the ota board and the parent involvement was to a zero, the kids did have a good 5 years while we were there,and the teachers are the best, i still keep in touch with thwm. and good luck to mrs. wilson. i hope with a new school the parents will come to help the kids have a good year , all i can say parents get to know what your kids are doing in school be involved.

I am more than pleased with this school. All 3 of my children have went to this school and the quality of education that is provided is exellent. They strongly encourage parent involvment and go out of thier way to provide oppertunities for parents to meet after school even for drinks. The principle is great she has a strong and firm hand when it comes to nhow things are but she is the first person to take your child aside and praise them for a job well done. The teachers my children have had have been wonderful if they find someone having a hard time they step up and work with them. it is a great enviroment for children to grow and learn and the leadership of hte principle and teachers are wonderful.

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.
