My child is in kindergarten this year at Royalview. He has never come home from a day of school crying, upset, or unhappy! He goes to the bus stop each day with a smile and heads to school looking forward to a day of fun learning! He can read now and he does math quite well too. The school does a wonderful job making young, new students feel welcome. They have many fun programs for the kids to enjoy too along with their family! I am looking forward to my son's education at Royalview as they prepare him for the higher grades of middle school.

Royalview is a wonderful school with a great administration, staff and teachers. We moves to Willowick for the school system and have not been disappointed. My children's teachers are compassionate and caring. My daughter will be going to the middle school next year and I hope their staff is just as good. My children excel in all subjects because the teachers take time to do just that teach!

Royalview is an excellent school with caring teachers and staff. Not only do they offer the best in academics, but offer a nurturing enviornment filled with school spirit that is shown in all they do. As a grandparent who worked in a school district for many years, I'm pleased that my grandchildren go to Royalview.

love this school, my daughter's teachers and leadership! Moved from another school in the district and it is like night and day the quality of education here is far more superior then the other elementary school my daughter attended before!

My son is going in first grade. We love the school and specifical bought a house in Willowick, because of Royalview. My son was in Title 1, for some reading help....he was out of there in 3 month's, with great imporvement. The PTA is very involved as weel as many of the Parents. Willowick is a great community, and that makes for a great Royalview.

My daughter has special needs and is mainstreamed into a typical classroom for all but gym. She has been going to Royalview since she was 5. The teachers are highly skilled and work with the parents to make sure the students do there best. My daughter loves going to school and loves her teachers.

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.
