Genoa is a great, great school. It has to be the best ever!
—Submitted by a former student


Posted January 28, 2007

Our two children have very much enjoyed Genoa Middle. We have the greatest teachers. I have always felt comfortable contacting any of the staff. They have always contacted us right back with responses or willing to get back soon. How wonderful is that? I feel that Genoa is extremely open to ideas and very happy for help from parents. That is the best way to find out about any school. Look inside it, volunteer, become involved. Genoa is wonderful and I am so happy to allow them to have the honor of teaching my children.

I think the parents within the Westerville school district are very supportive of the schools. Parents often donate with money, volunteer work, or where ever they might be needed. I think the school district is very lacking in offering extracurricular activities for the students. It seems that every year more and more classes are being cut from the curriculum, there's a question as to whether sports will be available next year, and if sports are available at what cost to the student? Will it be affordable? I think we need to go back to the basics. Why do we need new schools that are built to have 3 story ceiling and all this extravagant extras that don't pertain to the childs education. What happened to just building a school with the essentials for a good quality education that is affordable to maintain. Reserve the money for where it counts...the education.

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.
