The communication between school & parent is seriously lacking. In the nearly 2years my child had been going to Bauer, the communication has only deteriorated. Instead of working with the parents to maintain a circle of communication and continued discipline with learning and behavior, communication comes only after numerous emails/phone message attempts by the parent and when any problems have escalated to an unnecesary level. Communication tools that the school has in place, like student agendas, emails, phonecalls, are not utilized. Instead a semester's worth of supposed issues are received all at once. There is no focus on the success of the children, only in rushing them through each class with as little direction possible. Any child that chatters or moves around too much is quickly labeled as a "distraction/behavior issue" child and the parent is pushed into believing they are ADD/ADHD. Completely unacceptable. I recommend sending your children to another school if at all possible.

At this school they allow a 5yr to wet herself after asking to use the restroom because it wasn't a convenient time for the teacher to allow her to go. Then she is sent to the office and given a random pair of underwear and sweat pants that do not even fit her. They did not even call the parents to inform them of what happened so they could bring her her OWN clean clothes. I feel that this teacher should not be allowed to teach nor do I want her in charge of my children. I also feel that the principal of this school mishandled the situation on so many levels. Whatever happened to teachers caring about the students?

Bauer Elementry's teachers are overwhelmed, the district doesn't have the funding it needs tp provide full day Kindergarden and uses modulars outside of its tiny building as well as a public church to fill its need for space.

After being homeschooled for a year, my two step-daughters began attending Bauer just this past year. The teachers were so willing to go way out of their way to ensure that they were adjusting back to a structured learning environment. When a problem arose they notified us, and offered a solution to assist in correcting the issue. I was highly impressed with the manerism of the teachers and the staff in general. I will gladly send my children to Bauer every year they are able.

My son has been going to Bauer for 2 years now. The administrative staff and teachers have all been wonderful. They have worked with my son both academically and emotionally. They have been very supportative in helping him reach his full substantial goals in his educational development. They also have been very supportative in his time of loss of his father. They have taken the time for him to express his emotions along with other students who have loss a family memeber by having grievance sessions for these students. Bauer I believe goes above and beyond the call that is required by an academic school. I would and do recommend Bauer to any parent for their child(ren) to attend. Bauer has been most helful to both my son and me.

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.
