The lower ranking is quite understandable, since the number of international students are high. My two kids went to this school with no knowledge of English at all, and surely drew the school score lower. However, they got all the help they could have. My first child who came to the U.S. at fourth grade, has graduated from UAHS this year, and is going to an Ivy.
I second the other review. Tremont has it all and Tom works tirelessly to his staff and students. If you want a well-rounded kid at the top of her game in UA, you'll get it here!
Interesting review from 11/8/12 parent. Tremont is now closed for the 13-14 school year for open enrollment at this school is so popular that it is full. Tom Bates is an amazing principal and leader and it shows in the faculty and student population. Test scores (if you believe that is the be all-end all) are up and the school is bursting with confidence and pride. Tremont has the highest international population of all elementary schools in UA. It's a great place to be.
This may have once been a good school. With so many amazing school districts in the columbus area it was hard for us to justify staying in a school district that has been passed up. The building is old and the academics are lacking.
Why is Tremont keep falling behind in the OAT? I am planning to move to Upper Arlington and my younger son will be attending Tremont. I try to take comfort in that UA middle schools and high school are doing well but I can't help being concerned about Tremont's low ranking and test scores. Any ideas? Thanks,
Outstanding leadership under Barry and Maria while I taught there. Parent involvement was strong, yet sometimes haughty. Teacher dedication, when I was on staff for 18 years ... tops.
I love Tremont. The class size is small. The teachers are great. The building is not new, but the amenities are amazing. my son is in the top of his class, but the teacher sees that he is challenged everyday.
This school has been fabulous. There is assistance available when your child is struggling and extra stuff for your over achiever!
I agree whatever has been written earlier about the school. No doubt that it is one of the best in the nation. The teachers, principal and other staff are excellent. They have a very friendly atmosphere in which students tend to learn to their maximum potential. I have a son in 5th grade now, we feel that we are lucky to send him here. This school has provided him the best education and a strong foundation for future.
The Principal and staff are top notch, they do what is necessary to update the and work with the PTO to get equipment and materials to enhance the education experience.They were able recover for a storm tradegy quickly and positively.
I now have three boys attending Tremont Elmentry in Upper Arlington, Oh. One in fifth grade and twins in first grade. My oldest has been at Tremont since first grade and has been a part of one of their excellent tutitorial programs for three years. I honestly believe my boys could get no better education, not even at an expensive private school, than what they receive at Tremont. The teachers are wonderful, the principal, Dr. Wilkes, is very caring and an excellent leader and their programs are of the highest quality. I plan on staying in this school district for my boys to graduate from, no matter what it takes!
