2 of 2 This school district needs to improve many things and I felt it would not happen. He no longer attends Huber Heights Schools! I have made many financial sacrifices to send him and my other children to a private school. He no longer struggles, his grades are up, and he is almost caught up academically. I see the standardized test preparation in the daily work they do, not just the week before the test. I also use to hear many stories of bulling. I observed teachers outside socializing instead of supervising the kids so I was not surprised at what my son told me. I no longer hear of bulling but of fun at recess. I am also very happy my children will not be attending Wayne HS.

I love this school. My 6 year old goes here and he loves it. We came from the Kettering area, where they told me that they were going to have to put my son in a 'special class'. We moved, and my son started Rushmore. I pretty much figured that they would tell me the same thing as Kettering schools did. But they didn't. They told me that he was right on schedule with everyone else. (like I thought he was) The staff at Rushmore is wonderful. They were so nice and helpful. This is my sons second year there and he is doing great because of them. :)

I have very few complaints about Rushmore. The teachers that my kids have had so far are great and Principal Crabtree really cares about the students. I do wish that more parents would get involved. It seems like many of the same people are stuck doing everything at the special events. It would also be great to see more teachers getting involved in the festivals and picnics. That said, I still would not send my children anywhere else. Rushmore is a second home for us.

I am very pleased that my children attend Rushmore Elementary. I'm spend a lot of time at the school and I like what I see. The staff is wonderful with the children and they really care about the success of each and every child! We have a very active PTO and many active parents trying to make a difference in the lives of the children. The staff enjoys parent involvement and goes out of their way to make parents comfortable when visiting or helping out at the school. Test scores are soaring and I know that the teachers and staff will do everything possible to continue the upswing!

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.
