Community ratings & reviews

  • (2 years ago)

    Cardinal has GREAT Teachers and Staff. (My kids really like them) It also has the WORST community in Ohio for public schools. They have continually voted down every school levy. Their claim is that the funds are mismanaged. Now they have cut back any extra-curricular activities or have changed it to a "pay to play" for sports. Cardinal has a very limited bus schedule as well do to cut backs. The community is the 4th largest Amish in the US. The Amish has their own schools so they vote down OUR levy's. The community also has an older public that feels they are being taxed too much because they are on a fixed income. And last but not least this community has a large "Tea Party" following which means less government and NO taxes. This combination does not fare well for YOUR kids.
