    This school is undergoing a reinvention process. When the current principal took over a few years ago it was apparently not at all welcoming but I have never had a problem with getting in touch with teachers or staff since my child started school here. The movement towards being a "Leader in Me" school is definitely pushing the staff towards innovation and the students towards success. I can't wait to see how the changes improve the culture of Cheviot even more.

    my child has been attending Cheviot for 5 years and this year they are starting the Leader In Me program. It has been very useful for my child. The teachers are also good at letting me know if my child needs help in a class with things they are working on.

    Cheviot is a growing school community that is very diverse. We are making strides to become a even better school. As of right now we are heading in the direction of becoming a Leader in Me School which we are very proud of. While doing this our test scores are on the rise with the help of all the outstanding work and effort that our teachers put in everyday. I am proud to be a member of this school.

    My children both attended Cheviot. My son has moved on to high school now and my daughter is still a student at Cheviot in the 6th grade. She has been a student there her entire primary school years. Both of my children have always scored high on all academic achievement tests including the OAA. They are both A honor roll students who are well disciplined and very intelligent. Cheviot Elementary has succeeded in providing my children with a great education. Not only are they honor students they are ambassadors for their schools and show great citizenship and culture in which I accredit to having wonderful teachers throughout the past years. The staff at Cheviot are all caring and nurturing people who truly care about the child and their family.

    Left Cheviot school to go to Oak Hills school district and regret it // My children went to cheviot with 2 graduating 8th grade there The principle was the only bad thing about the school yes you had kids who needed more discipline and respect that should be taught at home but school always handled it PTO IS GREAT !!! I miss the teachers and how they cared for the children and the family feeling we got at that school something OHSD dont offer New Principle seems great

    This school is decent but some of the staff in it is horrible. It was our first year here at cheviot and we thought the assistant principle was the boss. Me and my family actually had 2 go into the principles office just to meet her. When I first saw the school I thought it was a hostile disfunctional enviroment.But the assistant princaple she is the best. She greets you with a smile she is a polite woman who acctually wants to know how your day has been and what did you learn....The assistant principle now changed. My middle school teachers are like a second fammily to me. ..We do soooo much fun stuff and the teachers are like one of us students..Plus the lesson plans are both curricular and fun. Well cheviot over all is a great school and they treat me as if im familly!

    I'm sorry to say that the last posting is not accurate. First look at the typing and spelling. Second- I did not know that my child would ever be classified as an animal. I voluenteer at the school and I do not see a fist fight everyday. Instead I see loving caring teachers who go the extra mile to help all. it is sad to say that the parents are to blame for their child's behavior. Teachers and the school are not the child's guardian. Maybe parents should participate more in the parent sessions being offered at the school or stay in touch with the teacher about their child's behavior.

    I am rating this school at a 0 because the kids learn nothen and very far behind compared to other schools.There is always fist fighting going on everyday at this school and the school does nothen at all.In the moring time it looks like the kids are a wild pack of monkeys coming in when you drop your kids off.How sad is that? Its real sad.

    Things were just too stressed for my son to go to Cheviot.The teachers were great but the principal Mrs.Bonavita makes the thought of sending my younger child there undesirable!I feel when problems arise it should be handled in a timely matter.Doesn't happen@Cheviot!

  • (5 years ago)

    My daughter had wonderful teachers at Cheviot which is a neighborhood school and can use all the help they can get!

    Cheviot is more than a school it is a community. It is led by a fearless leader and Mrs. Bonavita. People don't realize all the things that Mrs. Bonavita does behind the scenes. Some of the teachers are not very positive and that ruins the schools atmosphere. The school is not about what the school looks like on the outside it is whats on the inside of the nice school. The staff makes up a great deal of the school's positive energy. So the next time you rate the school ask the students in middle school and they will tell you everything about how great this school actually is. The Middle School tries ther very hardest to make a differance in the lives of people younger. Sure the school isn't perfect but the Middle School is doing their best to make this school excellent.

    I am 36. I went to cheviot my 17yr old went there and now my 8yr old goes there also. I can't say i have never had 1 single problem with cheviot but i can say that over all things went well. I can tell you with comparing my 2 kids who are 10 yrs a part in age that attendance and sticking to a set schedule of events is the secret. If your child gets behind whether it is a teacher having a rough personal life that year or your kid getting in a rut of not wanting to attend school ...It can make or break a good school year a school career! my youngest who has never missed a day of school since kindergarten is now in 2nd grade and has a 3.75! Make them go to school every day no matter what!! don't cop out and blame the school!!

    If I could give this school less than a star I would. The standards are beyond poor and just because the building is relatively new doesn't mean it's a quality school. And as a parent I do not feel welcome nor have I been treated with respect nor kindness. Message to Cheviot next time you want to spend money on 'improving' the school improve the quality of the education and the environment first.

    Cheviot School is off to a great start this year. We have a wonderful staff who has been working hard to make a positive change for the students and community. I personally know that the staff spends a good deal of time and energy to make the school a success. Even though Cheviot did fall a category with the mandates of NCLB they have made growth with students for the past two years according to the Ohio State Report Card. There are not many schools within Cincinnati Public that have done that. I congratulate the staff and adminstration for contiuing to have one of the best schools in Cincinnati Public. Your job is not easy.

    The new school is great as is the music teacher some teachers do try hard and work well with students but some are lost when it comes to teaching school lacks discipline and standers Lunch room workers can be rude and school princable seems lost at most times

    There are a few issues but the level that my son has achieved is rewarding but due to bus transpo my son is switching schools. Focus on discipline and make sure the teachers are EXPERIENCED enough to handle the task at hand.

  • (8 years ago)

    I have watched this school change in many ways over the 6 years my children have been there. One thing I can say has not changed is how wonderful the teachers are now and have been in the past. Now this year they have some new clubs for the kids and a great PTO that is trying to make the school more enjoyable and family friendly. There is of course nothing we can do about the principal she is what she is. The one thing that really stinks though is that we are losing many wonderful teachers do to CPS budget cuts.

    This school is ridiculous! It seems that they should be more focused on improving the education instead of making sure everyone uses just 1 of the many doors the new 'improved' school building has. The drop off/ pick up procedure is horrible! It's a madhouse! And parent involvement! Well maybe if they made the parents feel wanted/welcomed more would be involved. And even worse- the teachers ignore the discipline problems instead of addressing them- don't ask me what the principals do! Needless to say I'm looking to move!

    I have two kids at Cheviot and unless there are some changes this may be our last year. The teachers that my kids have had are wonderful and are very caring. Unfortunatly as my kids get older I see that there is very little discipline at this school. Anything goes. The principal is very hard to reach and unfriendly when you can reach her. This does not seem to be just my experience

    I don't much care for this School. As an Involved parent You never feel welcome there. Behavior in this school is out of control.
