Two of my children have gone to Karrer. The teachers and staff are excellent, the school setting is beautiful, and the extra-curricular events (from sports to Power of the Pen writing teams) are run well. We've been very happy with Karrer.

The Dublin city schools professes to have a "no tolerance" policy for violence and bullying. My son was attacked the 3rd week of school. The next day the attacker was back in school like nothing had happened, given another opportunity to beat up another student. No suspension. So much for no tolerance. I cannot speak to the teacher quality at this time. It is too early in the year.

Karrer is great and my son loves it. Excellent teachers and administrators with the right emphasis on learning. Programs such as sports focus on teaching above winning.

Most of the teachers are excellent. The principal is just average and the vice principal is below average and not well liked by students. The children are very nice to one another. Many of the math teachers are not math majors and have problems teaching the concept in 6th and 7th grade

The leadership is excellent. Team teaching approach with fantastic leaders who are bright, enthusiastic with the same kind of teachers under them. Math needs more conceptual teaching instead of 'new math method.' Positive learning environ.Safety is top concern.

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.
