Wyandot has the best staff who recognize the differences in kids and their learning styles.They score the best of all the Dublin Elelmentary schools and the kids give back to the school and the community.

This is our 4th year with Wyandot and we love it. Wyandot's test scores at consistently one of the highest in the city, if not the state for that matter. PTO is very involved in school and are there to support the teachers and staff in many ways. The only thing we have not been too happy with is the discipline issue. It seems very lax and i don't feel issues are handled well. I don't think parents of ill-behaved children are notified and this is something that starts in the home and should be addressed in the home as well as school.

Terrific teachers. Involved parents. Wide variety of special courses. Student teacher ratio is very desirable. This school is hard to beat.

Wyandot was a great experience for my children. My son has had some special needs and the special education teacher was excellent. Also Wyandot does not tolerate any bullying which made his transition from another school to Wyandot very easy. He was treated with respect and care. The academics were very good, but the Investigation Math Program is below average and I supplemented their Math program with my own home math program which provided then with the basic facts in math which the Dublin School System does not see as necessary. Parent involvement is excellent, and they have many extracurricular activities. The pricipal is very involved with the students, knowing them by name, and has attended many events outside the regular school functions. My only criticism is the front office staff is not very professional and the Math Program is lacking.

If I could change anything about this school it is the way bad behavior is handled. I don't feel the parents know enough of what's going on. I know of some situations where the parents should of been notified because of some very inappropriate behavior, and were not. It is the responsibility as school leaders to keep the parents informed.

Wyandot elementary is a great school for learning. My children have excelled. The teachers care about the students. As a parent I have always felt comfortable discussing my children with the teaching staff. The school is also a very clean. In a few cases there has been some issues on discipline. I feel that it is not a priority. Unfortunately on the issue of discipline I do not feel comfortable with the way inappropriate situations are handled. Overall we have been happy, and our children are happy.

My child has received an excellent education at this school so far. I love the teaching staff. The only thing that concerns us is, the dicipline is very lax. I feel issues are not handled very well Also I have heard alot of negative comments from the parents. Sometimes I feel the principal could take a stronger stand on a few very important issues as well.

We love Wyandot. Our child transferred here from another school, and we were very concerned about her adjustment. The staff and faculty have been great in helping us and her adapt. We think the Principal is outstanding. Other parents are very supportive & involved, which makes for a great elementary school community. We can't imagine our experience being any better.

I went to Wyandot for 3 years and it is the best school in Dublin. The parents volunteer, the teachers are wonderful, and the principal is very kind. It's clean, and the supplies for students are plenty and of high quality. I strongly recommend this school for anyone.

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.
