Everyone at this school has been extremely great to my daughter (including the office staff!). She has developed a love for school, which I never thought was possible. Mrs. Stapleton is great, it is wonderful to have a teacher and principle who enjoy children as they do. Our previous experiences at other schools were criminal compared to Cherrington.

I think the new principal Mr. Heck is doing a great performance job. He is very friendly to the children and gives thems much intervention. He is updated, innovative and supportive. Takes the time to know parents and children in a positive manner.

Our two son's have attended since Kindergarten and we love the school, the teachers and staff. We have a strong core of parents involved in PTA, but as any school, would encourage more parental involvement.

My son attended the preschool program here and the services are outstanding. He is going to kindergarten with no special services at all. The teachers, speech and OT staff do everything in their power to make sure that the kids perfect all the needed skills and ability to succeed in life. They are like a team of cheerleaders! My son sailed through it and now he is off to a wonderful start in life. I love the genuine affection and care that they provide while doing their jobs and they work as a team to see your child at their best or better. They always provided homework and at home suggestions as to keep improving during the school year and over summer break. We also attended outside speech therapy sessions during the year. They just let me know that they are no limitations when you want to see your child succeed.

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.
