this school is the best and i only think that Mr.Wulf, if he's still the principal, should be nicer to the parents and kids. When i was there he wasnt very nice to me and my mom. That was only a couple years ago. ;(

I love the staff at Greensview. I love how the teachers are able to individually take each child forward from where they begin. I don t know how they do it, but it is amazing. They don t use a cookie cutter formula to teach-but take each child s needs into consideration. I have 3 children with 3 different personalities (overly shy, overly energetic, and easy going-could be easily overlooked). I feel each has been given the best education and their teachers have been able to creatively identify ways to gently push them to reach their full intellectual and social potential. They have loved school the entire time and looked forward to each school day. My oldest child, who is in middle school now, was very prepared for the riggers of middle school education. Other things that make me feel proud of being a part of Greensview include the charity projects that are done at each grade level, having strong parental support and involvement and the focus on being good citizens through activities that promote positive social interaction. I feel students from Greensview are prepared both socially and academically for their future education and highly recommend the school to others.

Greensview elementary is an excellent community built around the ideas of Positive behavior, respect, integrity, duty, and empathy (PRIDE). The collaboration among teachers in this school is excellent; teachers are constantly asking for feedback and trying to further improve their teaching approaches. Teachers use differentiated instruction to meet each individual students needs. Hands on approaches and technology are used on a regular basis in this school, advanced technology such as smart boards, i-pads, computers and video cameras are used daily. This close-knit community is highly welcoming and works hard to create a safe, fun and intellectually stimulating environment for all students.

Greensview is a community of learners. The teaching staff works hard to incorporate 21st Century Skills into all of their academic units. Students work with ipads, computers, SMART boards, and document cameras on a regular basis. However, the best part of Greensview is the building wide focus on Service Learning and the sense of community that is created with our addition of PRIDE Pal Families and monthly Town Meetings. Our teachers offer a best practices approach to our students and offer differentiation to meet all of their individual needs. Greensview is child centered, high performing (top 10% of all elementary schools in the state) and nurturing.

Greensview is the most traditional of all of the UA elementary schools. I'm sad to hear that the prior post didn't feel that Burbank prepared his/her child for elementary school -- both of my children went to Burbank for preschool and both are thriving even in the 'sit at your desk' environment at Greensview. Kids who aren't ready to sit still for most of the day may be better off at one of the other elementaries.

UA schools have a reputation that has something to do with good schools and a lot to do with great marketing. We have had a mixed experience with teachers- some are surprisingly inexperienced. Pre-school at Burbank did not prepare our children for school, and these are children who tested very high in terms of aptitude. Many other parents share my opinion, even at other elementary schools. I think Wickliffe is trying to do something unique; we intent to move our kids there this year.

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.
