I am impressed so far. My cousin has had no complaints about the school. She says its not that bad!!!!


Posted December 18, 2012

My daughter attends CCPSG and I am mixed about my review of this school. I agree that the school is disorganized (such as invitations to special programs offered to students from outside sources are "lost" and not given to students in time to be able to participate). The principal and office staff do not return phone calls to parents in a timely manner (if at all). Now, the teachers that my daughter has had I am happy with. They communicate effectively with the parents and give individual attention when requested by the students. The gifted and talented program is excellent. The staff for this program go above and beyond expectations to make sure that the parents are kept informed and offer many field trip opportunities to colleges and off site locations for academic enrichment. This school is a lottery school, meaning that you choose for your child to attend. When I enrolled my daughter, my expectations were high and unfortunately have been disappointed in my decision. If the gifted and talented staff and department were not what they are, I would withdraw my daughter and have her attend another school. My rating is average, all things considered.

This may appear to be a great school at first, but, it goes MUCH deeper. The students cause a LOT of drama, having seen it first hand. We ARE, however, good with academics, but that is really the only difference. Students cause trouble, and are disrespectful, plus, this school is a bit unorganized.

As a teacher at this school, I have to say that it is an incredible place of learning. The principal effectively runs the school, and the staff is second to none. Walking in, you would think you were at a private school, not an inner-city urban middle schools. The girls definitely embrace the schools' motto of "Well Read, Well Spoken, and Poised." Test scores rival any other school in the district. Our gifted and talent program is simply amazing. This school is an excellent option for parents of girls in Columbus City 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.
