Wapakoneta city schools have a lot to be proud of. They have recently built 2 new elementary schools (2011) and remodeled their middle and high school. They offer an outstanding music/art/extracurricular menu that every student can get involved in at some level. Athletic opportunities for every sport/season is also available. Teachers/staff go above and beyond in providing a well balanced yet challenging curriculum. I am amazed at the level of technology the teachers use on a daily basis to conduct lessons. A strong point here is; your child will be technology literate for the real world when they graduate! My children were well prepared for college and my nieces and nephews are thriving at Wapak.

Wapakoneta,OH is a Great place to take ur children and raise them. You will have such fun, memorable memories there. The Middle School is really good at their academics along with extras. They are very big on sports and have many of varities of clubs to be in. The Wapakoneta High School is a Great place also to head into just after Jr. High. They just resently moved the 8th graders up into the High School because they had no place for their 5th graders anymore (long story) and I think that this was a fantastic choice; because it gets your teens ready for high school life along with the same classes and teachers that they would have gotten if in the Middle School. Thanks for reading! -Wapak Lover!-

About the tests


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.
