My daughter is in the 8th grade and she is happy to be a part of New Lexington Middle School. I feel that the school is well rounded. Many great teachers that care for the students and put in extra effort to make sure they succeed. The staff encourages academics first and foremost. They are very supportive of extracurricular activities. The school offers a wide variety of activities such as sports, music, art, and many academic programs. They encourage parent involvement and recommendations. It seems to me if the parents are involved the child excels. I would like to thank the New Lexington School District for their continued leadership to our young children. My daughter always wants to be the very best she can be in her school experience.

After having one child graduate from New Lexington High,one still in High School,and one in Middle school,I can't honestly say I would recommend the New Lexington City Schools. I have a child in 11th grade,New Lexington is a good school for her. She has a desire,and the ability to excel, and does.My 8th grader, on the other hand does not exude these qualities and, therefore, requires more from me,and his teachers,when it comes to school.In the past three years, despite numerous meetings with teachers and administration,there has only been one teacher who has went the'extra mile'to give me what I needed as a parent to help my child do better.They would do well to really understand that one day these'immature, irresponsible'students will be adults that realize the value of a good education and that alone should be enough to NOT give them up as lost causes.

New Lexington has an impressive new building for their students but they need to put the money towards obtaining quality instruction and solid curriculum. Test scores do not account for everything but their low ratings in math show they need to direct further efforts toward academics. Major changes are needed in their educational system because it is not where it could and should be.

I just graduated from this school. Im in the navy now but my brother and sister still go. Mr. Lechrone the principle was a very great guy, i liked him. and Mr. Jay Householder was cool. too but these are what i thought about the school while i was there, this is the honest truth and i would put anything that would put my school down cuz, that makes me look bad and it makes my brother and sister look bad too.

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.

State averages displayed on public school profiles include public schools only. State averages displayed on private school profiles include private schools only. The OGT is a high school graduation requirement for public schools and chartered private schools. The OGT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Ohio. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

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.
