My son loves this school, it is far better suited for him then his previous charter school.

Larchmont is the best school to put your kids in (my opinion). It has a wonderful principle Mr.Hanthorn and loving teachers and staff. I attended Larchmont kindergarten-sixth grade and i absolutly adored it. I had so much fun and whoever attends i know for a fact they will to. Im 16 in high school now and i still wish i could go back to Larchmont. In high school there not as friendly as Larchmont. I experienced my best memories there and will cherish them forever. Maybe i'll visit again one day. I wish Larchmont Elementary the BEST! - Kiana York

This Is A Great School But It Know Goes Up To 8th Grade , And They Are Not A Junior High . Its Not Fair To The Kids That Have To Go There Because Larchmont Doesnt Teach No Junior High Stuff , So When Those Kids Go To College , They Wont Know What To Do . Larchomont Dont Have Sports , Periods , Chicago Trip For 7th Graders , Washington Trip For 8th Graders . All Those Kids Wont Be Able To Do None Of That Stuff And Its Not Faur To Them .

my children went there, and my grandchildren are going there, good school, great people!

This schools has exceeded my expections for an urban distriact. The school is small, the children well behaved, and the staff has been flexible and more than willing to work with us to meet our son's needs. They exemplify best practice. It's a hidden jewel for Toledo Public.

This is my child's second week at Larchmont and he just loves it. He was very unhappy at his previous Charter School. The level of first grading reading is higher than the first grade Charter school reading program and they actually read in the school. Also Larchmont respects that these are children and they care about the children not just a number. I couldn't be happier what a difference.

I hear great things about the principle and other staff. The building and the grounds always look great and the children seem to like it there from what I hear. The teachers also care about how the children are doing with their studies and the Special Ed Brenda Maas is excellent along w para Linda Zunk.

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.
