The Ohio Department of Education rates schools annually. These ratings can be found at this link http://ilrc.ode.state.oh.us/Downloads.asp.
My experience with clients has been that the more involved the parent(s) the more the child gets out of whatever shool they attend. There are, of course, some schools that do routinely excell in there performance and the ratings will show this. Regardless, of the ratings, it is essential that you visit the school and talk with both administrators and teachers in addition to view the school.
Best wishes on arriving at your decision.
