They teach core values that relate to a responsible child.

Crossing is a great school! I've had one child through the school so far and another one now just in 1st grade. Crossing is wonderfully staffed! The only problem with Hilliard in general is that they all use Everyday math - a horrid program. Other than that, You'd have to be nuts to pick a charter school over Hilliard City schools. I'm from Dublin and Hilliard is right there in comparison! Super Schools and Nice people all around.

I have two children attending Hilliard Crossing. I am very pleased with the school. From the principal to the students, everyone is treated like family. Crossing is a safe and comfortable environment which is key to successful learning. Their teachers are not only highly qualified, but they interact well with the kids. My kids absolutely love their teachers and are excited about school! They were able to determine very quickly that my oldest son needed to be evaluated for gifted services and placed him accordingly. I cannot say enough great things about this school.

Hilliard Crossing is a Wonderful School! We have had 5 wonderful years there and I'll have another who will just be starting there. From what I know about all of the teachers and programs, they try hard. My child has grown into a wonderful student. I look forward to having another child go through Crossing. Check out our testing scores, I bet you'll find Crossing to be in at least the top 10! Crossing Cares!

I felt the same about the school not helping children that learn at different rates. I ended up putting my child in a charter school on the westside last year and I finally saw the change. He was 'limited' according to state testing when he left hilliard and this year he received 'proficient.' so far i have been very impressed.

It is now August 2006. I agree with the poster before me. It does little to accommodate children who learn differently, it seems not much has changed. Not many options other than holding my child back were brought to my attention. The principal and teachers told me not to worry, and that is not like it was when we were children. I was told that children being held back was not uncommon today. In fact, that it happens all the time. That some kids think it's 'cool' to be older than everyone else. My child does have some learning difficulties, but the fact that the teachers seemed so nonchalant, 'oh it's cool', 'oh it happens all the time', did not comfort me. If it is as common as they say, is it the children failing the system, or the system failing the children?

This school district ptior to 2001 did not offer much in the way of helping children that learn differently (Nationally 40%) by offering different learning programs. The one size fits all does not work I hear they are making some strides to change this over time. I wonder how long it will take.

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.
