Posted September 21, 2013

I am very disappointed in this school this year. My children attended this school when it was Liberty Christian Academy, and the first year of it becoming Patriot Prep. After moving out of state and returning after a year, I re-enrolled my children because of our previous experiences. Now, I could not be unhappier. The work that my children are completing is two years behind grade level at best. The teachers do not seem to have any idea of how to implement a rigorous curriculum, and the resources are very dated. The school's principal seems to be more concerned with discipline and whether the students' are in proper uniforms than what is going on in the classroom. I will be taking my children out of this school at the end of the quarter. My warning to anyone considering this school: Please reconsider!!

This is the third year of my students being at Patriot and I am disappointed how it went from a family friendly school with an open door policy to a locked down prison where parents are not welcomed during the day. Academics are lacking this year at the middle and high school levels because no books were ordered for certain math and science classes. Teachers are not as friendly this year and the principal does not want parents involved at all. The security cameras and locked doors are to keep parents out of the school. We are pulling our kids out at the end of this year and are not coming back. This public charter school is not better than the local Columbus City Schools.

My school can buy medals, new security doors, new door designs, and security cameras that watch our every move, but can't buy better A/C's because it is hot in the spring and summer time and cold in the winter and fall time. plus walls that look like they can break any time. plus unclean bathrooms and an unfriendly janitor who needs a chill pill.

My child completed her first year (Kindergarten) at Patriot. My intention was to send her there for one year, only to take advantage of "All Day Kindergarten," since Pickerington does not offer that. I was so surprised and impressed by Patriot's dedication and attentiveness to each student. Patriot is a school that implements academics, morality, unity, and security/safety. From drop-off to pick-up, my child was addressed by name and always with a smile. Moreover, the entire graduating class earned either all As or all As and Bs! Sports teams for even the Kindergarten students and all-day access to my child's teacher via email were favorable! The Patriot staff reminds me of the good ole days - the time when teachers noticeably cared about the students' overall well-being. Teachers were both educators and guardians; parents and teachers were on the same team and with the same goal; and trust and respect were genuine and mutual. My child is excited about going to first grade, but she is sad about leaving her Kindergarten teacher (Mrs. Peterson). Sorry Pickerington, but we will continue with Patriot Prep: My child and I are very pleased with the school and their mission!

I could not have asked for a better solution for my son and his education. He faces challenges with his ADHD and ODD. Mr. Tucker and Mr's Peterson had their hands full this year, bless their hearts. When he was tested this time last year, they were worried that he would not have made it through the year successfully. We all worked very hard and he passed with honors, all A's. This school not only is geared toward academics and ensuring that every child gets everything that they can out of attending this school, but they are geared on morals, ethics, and integrity where you will find your typical public school lacking. Our family is so grateful for having found PPA, and have chosen this school for our children again this year and will continue in the future. I recommend this school to everyone when they ask how we pulled through with Anthony, we could NOT have done it without all the support that he had there at PPA. They are wonderful and we are very blessed to have them in our lives. My son adores them all

The teachers and staff in this school are excellent. They work closely with parents as a team in order to help the student reach their very best academically. I enjoy that all four of my children can attend the same school (they range from 5 to 14), as it's much easier when they are all on the same school calendar. As much as I like this school, I gave it only 4 stars as I wish it had more options for sports for my kids.

This school has been a great school for my two children acedemically and socially the teachers were great. I would really recommend this school to any parent looking for a good charter school for their children.

I am a grandparent . My concern is with the physical interior appearance of the school. The walls need paint and repairing of baseboards especially in some classrooms. The fabric on the walls in the gym is frayed and and in my opinion should be removed. I recently became aware of the music room downstairs, to walk down those steps and be greeted by dirty walls and floor is very depressing, The music room is also very depressing. I find it a shame that students have to enter such a depressing area. I know that the budget will probably not allow any work to be done and that is very sad.I just feel that all children should be able to go to a school that reflects a little more concern about the interior appearance. Please note that my review reflects only the physical appearance. Thank you for your time.

This is my daughters second year at this school (grade school). She is very happy here. Most of the staff and student body is still here from when the school was Liberty Christian. I feel the core values are strong and the teachers are very involved.

My children are in there second year at this school (elementary) and I am pleased. They do have a somewhat strict dress code for a public school, but I prefer this to the alternative of children coming to school in attire that is distracting. I think the teachers/administration do a great job of communicating and there are many opportunities for parents to be involved.

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.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the Ohio Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

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.
