Graduated in 05. Best life decision I've ever made! Every time talk about my school everyone asks, "what kind of school did you go to?" or "What's the name of that place?" Well I'll tell you! The Best School Ever!

Absolutely amazing. The students learn so much, the staff is excellent. Shakespear to welding. Algebra to robotics. the students are well prepared for life when they graduate.

The education available at this school is superior to any available in my opinion. The school leader Gary Thompson is superior in his relationship with all students. He and the rest of the staff are available to both students and parents. Parents are welcome in the school any time and Mr. Thompsons door is always open. This is not the school for students who wish to participate in sport teams(however the staff will work with you if your child wishes to participate at their home school) or the Drama club. However their Robotics, lego leaue and alternative energy teams are superior with national level awards. All academic classes are very challenging but all teachers are available at least once a week to tutor students who may be struggling. This is the most extraordinary school I have ever had the pleasure to be associated with.

My child is very Athletic, but having the opportunity to attend a school like this one, has been a dream come true for both of us. He will still have the opportunity to play sports for Start High School, and his academic opportunities here are greater then any other school in the city. I am more then impressed with the school staff, and especially the principal.I am amazed at his ability beginning at the beginning of the school year, to greet each child, knowing something personal about them, and making conversation. The one on one time and attention these children are receiving, along with the technological advantage is what every parent should want for their child. I really appreciate my child having the opportunity to learn in an environment that tolerates absolutely no mics-conduct. I Love this school.

Our son is in his second year at TTA, we have been very pleased with the education that he is receiving. The teachers and the staff are very helpful and available to help. The school also uses thinkwave so parents are able to check daily how their children are doing in there classes.

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.
