barely had any issues and they were quickly and profesionally solved if I did. Mrs. Rammel being the new superintendent helped the school out a lot and I can say that from experience at this school. As for it being a party school...every school will have those who are going to do drugs just because a select few kids have done things in this town people want to give the school as a whole a bad rating..well West Milton is a small town so if something small happens it's a big deal..overall our school and the way it's maintained and the teachers teaching here are excellent it deserves atleast a 4 and again I say this as a student who knows a thing or two about what goes on in west milton = P

I think that our school has greatly developed over the past few years. Besides the need of a new high school, Milton-Union has been doing very well. The adoption of Dr. Rammel for superintendent was a fantastic idea. I think that she will help our school to better fund their money.

Milton Union schools are excellent. As a former student and parent of 2 children currently in the school system we are very pleased. The teachers and administrators do an excellent job of preparing you for college. It's nice to be in a school district that class size is small and students are accountable. A wide selection of extracurricular activities are available as well.

Milton Union school system has a lot to offer. Parent: My wife grew up here I'm from out of state. Our kids went to Dayton public for 3 & 4 yrs. The teachers here brought it to our attention that my son had a reading problem and with eye doctor care we corrected it without glasses. There are a lot of caring people here. As for the 2 neg reviews: Please so me s school where teenager don't test the limits. Go Bulldogs

I agree with the other poster, about Milton being a poor choice. Alcohol and drug use is out of control. MU is a party school.

I was always impressed by the teachers and how they were willing to go out of their way to help students. I would like for my children to be able to grow up in a school like this one.

I don't know who wrote that review but they must not have visited the milton school district. I attended milton schools for all 12 years, and every year was bad; no supplies, old books, and very poor leadership.

I love this school. I enjoy coming to Milton everyday. I have a lot of fun, but still learn a lot. I enjoys learning from most the teachers and feel very safe in this wonderful learning evironment.

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.
