Elmhurst School is located in a quiet little neighborhood community. The staff is great and the school is beautiful. Our children have been so fortunate to attend Elmhurst which has been rated excellent the past 7 years. I wish all children could attend Elmhurst.

Elmhurst has definitely earned being rated a 'school of excellence' - the teachers/staff go above and beyond to ensure the children are getting the utmost out of their education. The students are very polite; the guards make it a point to wish the parents a 'great day'. Elmhurst is an amazing school!

We purchased our home in this district because of this school. My children have been attending the school now for six years. I can't imagine a better school!

My family has had an excellent experience at Elmhurst. The amount of homework is reasonable, and the kids are being taught at a level that challenges them. Our teachers have always been very helpful.

As an elementary teacher I am very picky about where I am willing to send my children. I LOVE this school. The teachers are excellent and supportive. Their standards for the students are set extremely high. The amount of parent involvement is also amazing. There are many activities, academic, social and athletic. I would rank this school among the best in the area, not only Toledo.

My daughter attended this school for about 3 weeks. Her teacher actually quit the day before school started. What dedication! A new teacher started and apparently didn't have time to prepare because my daughter would mostly color and have recess. She's now in a private school and is doing wonderful.

This is a wonderful school that cares about their students. Best in Toledo.

Teachers have some real and very serious problems with calling students names. And this are not what you think - we are talking about calling students names like 'Honey, Sweetie, Lovie, Honey Pot, Sweatheart, and even Sexy!' This is real and have been documented by my self and others. I took my child out immediatley after she was called a 'Honey Pot and Lovie' by a Teacher - a Female Teacher.

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.
