If you would like your child to have a quality education, do NOT send them to Burlington Elementary!! The staff is lazy. "Do the minimum!" Should be the Motto at this school. Several years ago, Burlington was rated very high. However an influx of "i'm a teacher so I can have summers off" has infiltrated them. Not only do they lack in assisting children who need extra help, they also lack on the talented and gifted students as well. No enrichment. The office staff primarily consist of a loud mouth, overbearing, opinionated and gossiping secretary. Who hasn't a clue what the word PRIVACY means. I have heard more from her about students/families than I ever cared to The assistant principal is a joke, is happy to discipline the girls for minor issues but yet the boys get away with anything. No after school program. According to them, no funding for it. No tutoring....not even when parents offer to pay for it, teachers do not want to take the time for the students. Lunch is horrible. Ants are constantly a problem along with continuous infestations of head lice. Could I say anything positive?? It's in a good location.

This school is not a normal school. The principal is very snubby to the parents it;s her way or the high way she does not listen to the children or the parents all she wants to to is paddle the children. I guess that makes her feel big. She takes the teachers word for everything and that is not her job. I think she needs to be fired.

My experience has been negative. The teachers are aloof and unapproachable. The office staff has no interest in meeting your needs in a friendly or timely fashion.

Both of my children go to school here and love it. They have both excelled acedemically and have had excellent dedicated teachers. I have always felt welcome at Burlington and the teachers have been very approachable. We considered sending our children to private school but feel that we definately made the right decision to send them to Burlington.

This is a great school with teachers dedicated to the individual needs of each child. Child safety is a high priority, so parents are only permitted to be on-campus during an event, such as a party, or if they are registered as a volunteer and have undergone an FBI background check. Teacher and parent communication is excellent, as well as curriculum. I couldn t be happier with the education and attention my children are getting at Burlington.

Parents are not welcome at this school, it is viewed as a 'distraction' according to the handbook. The teachers are (in my opinion) not respectful of the children or parents. Would not enroll my child at this school. The most unfriendly school I have ever experienced.

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.
