The School is designed for students that want to succeed and for being in existence for such a short time they have shown results! And as a former student I will tell you DECA students work just as hard as college students and it all pays off!


Posted February 1, 2009

This school puts way to much on there students.They have them more worried about passing a 'gateway' than actually learning anything.Instead of grades, they use 'indicators'.The students are always running around trying to make up indicators and no learning happens. And once you get in the principal will do everything you she can to keep you there.I mean, this would be great if the kids wanted to be there.But they don't, and since they do this indicator stuff instead of grades, it's nearly impossible to leave and attend another high school, You would mostly always end up as a freshman because the indicators wouldn't transfer over to credits. I was completely bored at this school. They are so serious and strict, and EXTREMELY dead set on college and writing college papers that the kids learn nothing of what they should in High School?!

This school gets kids ready for college. It teaches them how to study for college, pass college test, write college papers and how to act as a college student. In addition, their affiliation with UD and Sinclair allows the students to take college courses. Several students from the last two graduating classes had associates degrees. They have very small classes and all of the kids recieve partial if not full scholarships from UD, WSU, Miami and other great colleges.

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.

The OGT is a high school graduation requirement for public schools and chartered private schools.

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.

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.
