Moreland Hills is one of the best schools in the nation because they believe educating all children in a productive and bully-free atmosphere. They also believe in diversity and these things are so important in todays society.

We are halfway through our second year in the school. We moved to the Orange school district after being unhappy with my son's previous schools. My son had a great year in 4th grade and is now in 5th grade. After nagging our former school to do something for my gifted son, who tested 'gifted' in every subject, but was just under the cutoff for the gifted program on the only test that counted, we moved. Without a word on my end, my son was in the math pull out program at Moreland Hills Elementary. My daughter started Kindergarden this year, and she is also in both the language arts and math pullout programs. I also really feel that the teachers are very dedicated and want each child to succeed in every way, not just academically.

The facilities are amazing and the campus is really pretty. We are very pleased to be in this great school district.

I absolutely love this school, faculty, staff, and administration!! My son has attended for two years (4th grade) and he has nothing but awesome things to say. He has a 504 Plan and the staff has been very supportive. It is worth spending an extra couple of dollars for the neighborhood!

My dauther was in the Orange School System for about four years. She started off in the Perschool program where she made alot of friends and learned so much. Then she was off to Moreland Hills Elementary School where she was very happy and enjoyed going to school. It was a joy seeing a child so happy about school each day. It was like being part of a family. I would give this school system a 10.

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.
