I have two children in this school and they are really loving it here. My kindergartener is in all day K and she has progressed so much since the beginning of the year that I am really so impressed and my fifth grader is making great strides at this school as well when he hadn't liked his previous school as much. He is making straight A's and is a top student in his class and his teacher is so glad to have him in class. I am so happy with the Gahanna school system all together. I have yet to deal with a rude person from a teacher or secretary or principal or any staff member, they have all be exceptional. Keep up the great work!!

I have 2 children attending Royal Manor. Both have had a positive experience. Our principal is focused on providing a positive learning environment for all children, the teachers are dedicated and it's been my experience that they work well with parents to meet the needs of your children. I've experienced working with the speech teacher, the reading teachers and the classroom teachers. I have found all of the teachers to be available and willing to work before and after school hours with my student. I'm involved in our pta and have found this group of parents dedicated and providing enriching activites to our school such as author visits, the COSI planetarium, field trips, etc. I am glad that we also have music, art, and PE in our school- my kids love these classes. The only negative..our schools gifted children will in-district transfer to Chapelfield Elementary . Especially when you have more than one child enrolled, it's difficult to consider splitting your children between schools. All in all, Royal Manor is a great school! Gahanna Schools have been a good experience for our family.

My children attend Royal Manor. I love this school and the staff. The teachers really care about the kids. The principal is wonderful as well and you can tell he really loves his students. I can not say enough good about this school. This is a great school if you are considering moving into the Gahanna district.

Just a quick note to all parents who aren't sure which elementary school they would like their children to attend (especially those who are considering moving to Gahanna). I have known everyone in this school for 30 years, I attended this school and my children have also attended. There is no school anywhere in Ohio that compares in any way. I believe all elementary schools in Gahanna are wonderful, but Royal Manor is full of the most caring people I have met in a long time. If you have any doubt, just walk into the school... you will immediately be greeted by a smiling face. The education received there is second to none and the children grow in a positive way to become their best.

Royal Manor is a wonderful School. The Staff and teachers are wonderful helpful people. They new principal is a very education and child motivated person. And I think it says something about a school when you can go back years later and still see some of the same wonderful teachers.

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.
