Columbus Ohio Schools Information


Where are the best schools?

People want to know where the best schools are located so we have graded the school districts on a bell curve of the state assigned performance index. The top 6 school districts have been given an A. The bottom 6 school districts a D, and in between an equal number of school districts a B and C. About 1/3 of the students in the A graded schools obtained advanced scoring on their state testing! Note: Performance Index is no longer listed as part of each school district report card, but is available through their data download.

2012-2013 report cards

A new format has been implemented on the state report cards. Each report card has a grade of A, B, C, D, or F within the measured area. Areas measured are: Standards Met, Performance Index, Overall Value-Added, Gifted Value-Added, Disabled Value-Added, Lowest 20% Value-Added, Annual Measurable Objectives, 4-Year Graduation Rate, and 5-Year Graduation Rate. Note: The prior format of the report card with relevant data and an explanation of the measured area is no longer available.
