I have had nothing but bad experience with this school. I have repeatedly tried to call and wrote a letter-delivered it and the letter was 'lost' according Mr. Young...'and unfortunate'. I don't know exactly what goes on in this school, but my child is hardly the biggest problem at Woodward. When I tried to contact the school, I was flat out told they have bigger problems than the situation with my daughter. And I feel I am not given the time of day by the very people that are employed to communicate with me regarding any issues that arise with my child...'their student.' Just the same as other students. I am not sure if it is the entire district or just North Toledo...but I definately see a diferrence in my child since Leverrette & Woodward.

Woodward highschool is a good school with good students but teachers need to get more involved with there students and they need to be a bit strickter.

I would agree with above comment about poor counselors for academic students. I graduated back in 1984 and was just outside top 10 in class. I was not encouraged to search for any scholarships, grants, etc. I paid for most of my college out of my own pocket and some help from parents. I fortunately made it thru college and am now a Pharmacist in Florida. I was one of the few Asian students at the time and always felt out of place and unaccepted by peers. Some racism and prejudice encountered during my time at Woodward. The high school experience did not prepare me well for the real world and have not kept up with any of the people I hung out with. Get what you can out of the 4 years and get out!

Woodward could be a better school if it was more diverse. I had one to graduate and two still attending. My college student wasn't given any help finding funding for college or even pointed in the right direction. There were scholorships out there we didn't know about until the recognition program. My daughter graduated fifth in her class with only a scholorship received through a recruitment letter from an out of state college. Woodward's counselors lack either the ability, knowlege, or time to help the top 10 on the senior class list.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Ohio used the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) to test students in grade 10 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. State averages displayed on public school profiles include public schools only. State averages displayed on private school profiles include private schools only. The OGT is a high school graduation requirement for public schools and chartered private schools. The OGT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Ohio. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

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.

No Value-Added data was reported for this school.

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.

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.
