Posted February 14, 2014

I am a grandparent watching my grandchild go through the third year of bullying. To date they do not have the situation under control and just ignore and hide the problem. The bullies I am told are even on the Wrestling team. They are tripping the so called "nerds' in the hallways, knocking books out of their hands and holding them back so they are late for class. My grandson's teacher notified us that my grandchild was "late" for class yesterday and it was due to this issue. How can they not know? On another note my other grandchild is ADD and on the 504 plan and nothing is being followed, but they are collecting the federal funds. Last mandatory meeting, not one teacher showed up and the counselor was totally disinterested. These are Hilliard Schools I am paying tremendous taxes to and I intend to get action starting today!!! Someone needs to help these children.

Hilliard Memorial Middle school teachers and staff are the best. They respond quickly to questions and keep parents up to date on what is going on with my child. Glad to be in Hilliard School District.

I love Mr. Lowrey. He gives a lot of individual attention to every student. MMS is a great school and I always have fun.

I have had two students go through Memorial and they have both had outstanding experiences. If a parent gets involved then the teachers will respond with assistance.

I love the principal, of course, Mr. Lowery. I like the teachers okay, I think they could be more parent friendly. I was not advised when my daughter dropped from an A on her interim report card to a D. Didn't think that was good. The teacher to child ratio is supposed to be comparitively low, I think they could work on their relationship with the parent. How are we to know if kids are having trouble withouth being contacted. I have found this to be true with the sixth grade schools in Hilliard also. We have lived in Hilliard 5 years and the school system is one of the reasons why I chose to move here. I have been disappointed.

Although Hilliard City Schools are overcrowded, the focus on individual learners is exceptional. Teams of teachers focus on the student body and its academic growth.

Although all of the schools in Hilliard are overcrowded, Memorial Middle School is focused on keeping students on track as individual learners. The academic studies push students to open their minds to the bigger picture.

The faculty and staff at Memorial do an outstanding job of helping the kids through the difficult middle school years. There are plenty of extracurricular activities and all are conducted well. Emphasis is placed on personal development, excellent sportsmanship and teamwork.

Teacher at this school have obviously forgotten the law in regards to 'NO CHILDREN LEFT BEHIND'. Repeated attempts throughout 2004 to get ouir childs homework assignments were fruitless and contact with teahers were scarce at best, especially in areas where attention was needed most. This school has forgotten that students with learning difficulties require extra attention and after school program did not address learning 'study hall'. My child will repeat 7th grade and the year was considered a loss as we could only work with what we were given.

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.

The OGT is a high school graduation requirement for public schools and chartered private schools.

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.
