Posted February 20, 2008

All three of my children go to Maplewood Elementary and I believe it is a very, very good school.

I have been associated with Maplewood Schools for almost 20 years; parent involvement has always been first-rate and with their priorities in check, and the teaching staff has been one of the most involved and compassionate I have seen in the county. What the school lacks is a competent board and quality administration, which has trended downward for the last 10 years and tumbled to incredible lows over the past 2-3 years. If the community doesn't act soon, the ill-effects of this board and administration will show up in staff attrition and apathy, which will then reflect through the children.

The academic programs at Maplewood are average. With a little bit of teacher initiative great strides could be made to improve their quality. Morale among both students and staff could also improve. The availability of Extracurricular activities are excellent. This is true to the point of becoming more important than the Academic programs. Some serious changes in priorities need to be implemented. Parent involvement seems to be average. This is because the same parents commit themselves to the district year after year. Although these parents do an outstanding job, there needs to be a larger group in order to improve things.

Maplewood High School is one of the best in the state of Ohio. Small town setting, great teachers, and wonderful extracurricular activities. Also, this schools' distance running program has been built to one of the best in the state, with several state championships in cross-country and track.

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.
