Always impressed with Mrs. Gussler, she does greet everyone by name with a warm welcoming smile. She is a very approachable person always willing to listen and takes the time to solve any problem that arise. The kids love her and the parents surely appreciate her. Mrs. Young also does a fantastic job as the school secretary, can't say enough praises to do her justice, she is a first class act. Glenford Elementary has a wide array of talented teachers willing to go the extra mile to ensure a child stays on course. This is truely a great school! Teresa - mother of many!

We moved here in the middle of the school year and I thought that the kids would have a hard time adjusting but they loved it from day one! It is an excellent school!

As a parent and a former teacher at Glenford, I have to say that I have never been a part of a better school. The staff is amazing and the overall behavior of the students is great. The staff is genuine and caring, not only about the students' academics, but other aspects of their lives as well. The education that a child receives there is outstanding. I would highly recommend this school.

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.
