Posted October 26, 2013

I moved here from an "excellent rated school district". I was very concerned about sending my children to this school. This school is really trying hard under difficult circumstances. They do a lot of extra things not required by the state, most important to me was gifted services starting from day 1 of Kindergarten. They also had free summer school, with busing and hot lunches. People here may not know it but that's not the norm across the state. I've really been impressed by Paula Ekis and her staff.

North is an excellent school with an excellent staff. My child enjoys going to school and I feel he is up to standards. The building is beautiful, also. I love everything about North Elementary and so does my child!

There is no structure and the children are not reading enough, no homework is sent home and when it is (rarely) it is spelling words. students do not benefit from the so called reading program because there is very little reading done in class out loud. Instead students are picked a few at a time to go to the hall or an area to read out loud with a class helper! What's the teacher to be doing if someone else is doing the work for them !

This school has excellent educators. The staff here cares about the children and wants them to succeed. They offer a variety of activities both in and out of the classroom for the children. The Home & School is active in bringing many programs to the students that they would never be able to afford to see. The only downfall is the principal. He lacks leadership skills, has horrible raport with his staff, and does not take care of discipline issues.

This is an excellent school. My children have attended this school for the last 8 years, and all have had no problems successfully passing their required tests. They have also had wonderful teachers who have challenged them and taught them values. The only downfall this school currently has is the principal. He has no leadership skills, has a horrible rapport with his staff, and does not deal effectively with discipline issues.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Ohio used the Ohio Achievement Assessment (OAA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. 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.

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.
