My grandson has special needs and when entering the school from preschool we were told he had severe learning problems. Guess what he reads and is learning. He is in K-1. We are so pleased with the staff and the principals who are so active in our child's development for a good future. thank you

Thornville Elementary is a teriffic school. It consistently receives EXCELLENT on the ODE report card. TAG testing/program is available, as well as afterschool program which is educationally based. Thornville is a small school with great parental involvement. The builing is new and well maintained.

As a sister of a Thornville student, and having going there myself, I know that this school is full of dedicated educators who help and influence their students daily. I always payed attention to what they had to say. The acedemics there have always been high. They have high expectations which are always met. In most classes there is art at least once a week. The things they do help the creative process, from the music classes that each grade attends at least twice a week, their gym at least twice a week, and their library at least twice a week, to having many educational and fun assemblies. I always remember the magic shows by our principal's son. There was an author, also, that I can recall.There are so many things parents can be involved in. From just volinteering time to help children read, to helping with parties in classes.

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.
