My daughter started here in Kindergarten after moving here from Phoenix, AZ. We have loved it from the start! There are lots of free programs if your child needs extra help, a free half day preschool on campus, free bus transportation, free breakfast and lunch, and all the staff is very helpful and friendly! My daughter comes home happy each day telling me about what she's learned. The school cares about all of it's students, and the teachers and supporting staff provide a low teacher to student ratio, which is great! The campus is very nice as well, being rebuilt/upgraded just a couple years ago. Loving this school!

Overall this school district is lacking, the new building is nice but the same problems exist. Lack of discipline, lack of Principal supervision , poor office management, poor school-parent-student relations and the list goes on. Unfortunately we cannot afford to send our children anywhere else. The only light in this school are the teachers themselves, every teacher we've encountered over the years is well educated and has a lot of personal, life, and education experience to offer the kids they teach. Any lacking is not the fault of the teachers! It's the system that they are required to teach to.

The academic programs are average. However, special ed programs are below average. Art and music are part of the curriculum. However, there is lack of additional, outside activities. The level of parent involvment is minimal to say the least.

Paul C. Bunn was the first school in the Youngstown City Schools to rank Effective on the Ohio state report card. It has a wonderful caring principal and staff dedicated to the education of students. Overall the Youngstown City Schools are improving and with new buildings, including Paul C. Bunn, on the way-our outlook toward the future looks great!

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.
