Ledgeview is a great school. I enjoy the personal feel. My child runs into teachers outside of school that she doesn't even have for class and gives them hugs. I am in the field of education and have been pretty happy with the teachers thus far, especially in regards to how much my child has learned. My child has had recess both years there, so I am not sure why one of the other posts states they don't get recess.

Beware, they teach one size fits all and if your child is not a top performer there is little help. Your child swims or sinks. No air conditioning for the children. No more recess. There is little time for individuality. The best part of the school is the playground and the outdoor learning center. The inside smells like a dirty sock... windows are rarely ever open in warm months. If you prefer a one size fits all approach to education- then this is the school for you! *Favoritism for some of the students who's parents help out extensively.

Ledgeview, an "Excellent with Distinction" school has provided my two students with a strong educational foundation in a caring, supportive environment. Every teacher sends home an assignment book each night, frequently with personal notes to the parent. The district also provides an online Progress Book where students and parents can check individual assignment and cumulative grades in real time. We have been blessed with so many excellent teachers who always find personal connections with their students and provide projects and opportunities for each child to shine. The school has an excellent gifted education program.

I found some of the teachers to be really great and others to be really awful. They talk a good game, but if you aren't a parent who will stay on top of things then your child will slip through the cracks in this district. The teachers who are bad can be truly horrific - the kind of people who should never be in teaching. I've seen a couple of excellent teachers leave in pure frustration with the district administration. Be a vocal parent, have documentation on what your child needs and keep after everyone to make sure it happens.

the teachers are great. they go above and beyond to make your child feel comfortable. but the down fall is it is hard to get an IEP for a child here. my child is in k he is very behind because he has adhd or bipolar. and is more worried about being center of attention. i think he needs extra help. the school wont give it to him. but his teacher has a lot of patience and tries hard to work with him and us. he even took time out of class to call me and tell me how proud he was of my child for reading a few 3 and 4 letter words.

I have two students at Ledgeview. The teachers at this school are mostly very dedicated professionals who truly care about the kids. The school works very hard to identify gifted kids - as well as those who are struggling. Parent support and volenteerism is high. However, one of my children has had some kids in class that have had behavioral issues. I strongly feel the school needs a better and more effective discipline policy so that and behavior problems are quickly brought under control.

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.
