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.
|Test score rating||8|
|Test score rating examines how students at this school performed on standardized tests compared with other schools in the state. Test scores are based on 2012-13 OAA/OGT results from the state of Ohio.|
|College readiness rating||7|
|College readiness rating combines this high school's graduation rates with data about college entrance exams, both of which are indicators of how well schools are preparing students for success in college and beyond. This rating is based on composite ACT scores, ACT participation (% of 11th graders taking the ACT), and four-year adjusted graduation rates from 2011-12.|
MethodologyView more details about the GreatSchools rating
The Ohio Local Report Card evaluates the academic performance of Ohio’s schools based on various components including student achievement, student progress, gap closing, graduation rate, K-3 literacy, and how well high school students are prepared for success. Schools receive a grade for various metrics within each component, where the highest rated schools in the state receive an A and the lowest an F. Beginning in August 2015, schools and districts will receive an overall grade, which combines the component grades.
