I like the energy at Maple. There always seems to be constant focus on individual student growth, not just overall achievement. The teachers seem to have time to collaborate with each other about various things. I really like the focus on behavior and academic growth. My son's picture gets hung up every month because he meets his monthly behavior goal. He loves this! And it goes without saying, the new building is beautiful. My tax dollars at work!

Mr. Sebring is the best principle. And all the teachers and supporting staff truly care about the quality of education the children receive.

I am very disappointed with Painesville city schools. The uniform policy or mcdonaldization of the system cannot fix the enormous hole. A new agenda should be to learn communication skills. Interpersonal communication with the children is more important than their packaging!

We have 3 children in the Painesville Schools, two at Maple elementary. We believe very strongly in the quality of the leadership and academics at the school. Almost all of our childrens' teachers have been eager to work with us, are very open to our concerns and very communicative about their concerns and expectations. Many go above and beyond to serve all of the children of the school. The principal has an outstanding commitment to the school and the kids. He interacts with them very well yet mainatins a good balance between being their friend and being the leader of the school. He respects the children and demands respect from them. The new facilities are excellent and well-maintained. They provide high quality opportunities for the kids to learn in ways that work best for them. There is ample technology to support the development of the required skills.

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.
