We were blown away by the welcoming faculty of our blended family when we moved to UA and enrolled 2 of our 5 now in Tremont! Mr.Bates is awesome leader and very involved in everyday activities that are going on other than the obvious academic activity. This year we are learning just how involved the staff care about improving everyone's scores with added attention given to students that need more help to improve! You just don't get that everywhere!

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,


Posted April 30, 2010

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.

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!

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.
