Goshen High School and Spaulding Elementary were two of just 130 Ohio school
buildings to be recognized by the Ohio Department of Education for
achieving outstanding academic performance among all of their students.
For the second year in a row Goshen High School was designated a "School of Promise" and a “High Performing School of Honor,” a title awarded to only 48 schools. Also for a third year in a row the Department of Education named Spaulding Elementary a “School of Promise,” a designation given to only 98 a schools in the state.
The Ohio Department of Education on Friday released the 2013-14 Local Report Card, which rates school districts on an A – F scale in a variety of achievement areas. While the report card has changed, the results are the same: Goshen students and staff continue their tradition of excellence!
Some highlights from the new Local Report Card:
1. Standards Met (are students passing the state tests?): Grade A, 100% of tests passed!
2. Performance Index (how Goshen students are scoring on the state tests?) Grade B
3. Overall Value-Added (are students showing growth year over year?) Grade B.
4. Spaulding Elementary School Standards Met: Grade A, 100% of tests passed and grade A on Value-Added.
5. Goshen Middle School Standards Met Grade A, 100% of tests passed
6. Goshen High School: Standards Met Grade A, 100% of tests passed and Grade A on Annual Measurable Objectives
7. Four Year Graduation Rate: Grade A
The new Local Report Card raised the standards for passage on assessments from 75%-80% and raised the bar in all areas for schools and our students. The Report Card provides useful information to celebrate on our students’ and staff successes, but also to target areas where we can do even better.
In an effort to provide our residents and families with more information about our schools, Goshen has, along with 60 other Ohio school districts, produced a document called the “Quality Profile.”
The Quality Profile highlights important celebrations and provides detailed information on academics, fine arts, athletics, finances and more. To access this document, please click here.
