Very supportive teachers and staff. Great curriculum.

Posted January 21, 2010

This school is just okay. Children are not well supervised by teachers. Lunches are often spent in classrooms with no teacher supervision. Also, the halls are overtaken by unsupervised running children at lunch and before and after school. Teachers are too concerned about making sure the students like them, and fail to correct bad behaviors. The pick up and drop off procedures are ridiculous. You cannot park in the school parking lot to drop off or pick up your child. School dismisses at 3:30 pm, and parents start lining up in the car pool line at 2:30!!! This is true! They expect children to wait in sometimes freezing temperatures for 20+ minutes until their parents car finally gets to the front of the line. I am not impressed. School officials do what is easy for them without thinking of what is best for the children.

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.
