I am a graduate of this school and my classmates all agree that we received a sub-par education and treatment based upon class and status. In order to achieve anything at this school, you need to have a strong social connection and money. For example, teachers and faculty won't even bother to intervene if a special needs child is being discriminated against if you don't have the right connections. AWFUL. (However, this is a marked improvement based upon how Private Schools in the area handle the situation! Shocking.)

An excellent school. Good traditions. Solid foundation. This school has teachers that go the extra mile. I have never encountered a teacher that is just "cashing a paycheck". This school excels at the arts. Also boasts a pretty good sports program. The thing I have noticed about this school is the closeness of the kids. The confidence the staff brings out of the kids is impressive. The details are never overlooked and I don't see kids falling thru the cracks. A great school to send your kids too.

Great School from Elementary on up. Great Teachers who are tough on kids, which is great to see. Some schools have teachers who are just "there". Proud to say my kids go to Boardman!

The AP and advanced classes are impossible to get in because they are limited (ex. only one class for English Comp.--so only fifteen students are allowed in out of 400+). NHS is a joke since teachers just vote for students; some valedictorians can't even get in! It should be like Canfield where everybody gets in if they meet requirements. The music and art departments are amazing, though. The areas that need to be improved are history (most teachers are horrible) and some math teachers. Most of the students are very apathetic towards academics--most only go to near by state schools and have no positive direction in life. Plus, a lot of kids seem to slipping in from Youngstown and Austintown school systems. Overall, I had an average experience, but I would never send my child there..better schools in the area!

I am a graduate of this typical suburban high school. I can say nothing but good things about my experience, except the fact there is not enough attention to the film arts. I know people in Ohio don't tend to sway towards the entertainment industry, but I wish there were more opportunities available. A film class perhaps? If nothing else it will open students' eyes to something they otherwise are unaware about.

This school has a wonderful music department. The only school to have three amazing orchestras in the Mahoning, Trumbull, and Columbiana counties. The band program is also wonderful, marching and concert bands. The symphonic band has played at Carnegie Hall and was just recently invited back to play there. As a student in both these programs, I highly suggest that anyone who has a child in the music program at another school and is looking to move to another school, I highly suggest Boardman's department.

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


In 2012-2013 Ohio used the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) to test students in grade 10 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. State averages displayed on public school profiles include public schools only. State averages displayed on private school profiles include private schools only. The OGT is a high school graduation requirement for public schools and chartered private schools. The OGT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Ohio. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

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.
