I could just cut and past what the 1 star reviewer from July posted. Appalling. They have no consequences for the bullies and seem to not even care when parents pull their children out because they are being bullied. If your child is not cookie-cutter forget it. They care only about test scores and looking good to the outside world. Bullying is such a problem in this school but the administration seems to have little to no interest in rectifying it. Children who have been reported numerous times for bullying and cruel behavior are still crossing-guards cheerleaders etc. There seem to be no consequences. Child have an IEP? Go somewhere else not worth the fight to get what you are legally entitled to to accommodate your child. Sorry we moved here.

Possibly the worst school my children could have ever attended. What this school lacks in diversity it makes up for in elitism people of color need not apply. My child refused to return to this school and had to be home schooled because of bullying. One star is too much.
OHS is a great school because the teachers parents and administrators all work together. Parent teacher conferences (2x a year) are attended by 100% of the parents. The principal knows each child by name. Parents volunteer in the classrooms weekly. Professional aides are assigned to students who need extra help and reading specialists are involved when needed. The art language and music are excellent. The facilities are a dated but they have all new electronics. Class sizes used to be sub 20 but with the budget crunch are now upper 20s. There are cliques as with any school. There are many community events that are coordinated through the school. Sports for <5th graders not so much.
Is usually the number one or top three schools in Ohio. Teachers offer fun activities like science club and after school art. My son loves learning because the teachers are so good.
Ottawa Hills Elementary School has the best teachers hands down! I'm not being partial either. OHES is always on top in Ohio for academic achievement. What about the Green Bear spirit? You can feel the energy of OHES as soon as you walk through the doors! This coupled with the respect and caring students at OHES have for one another makes for an outstanding learning environment. Oh and did I mention the importance placed on the Arts?! OHES has an amazing Brown Bag Choral group for 5th and 6th graders and an amazing Art room-- complete with it's own kiln! Plenty of sports and extracurricular clubs and activities are also a big part of what makes OHES tick. Children that attend Ottawa Hills Elementary School are happy indeed and you can tell by their wide smiles!
We have a great staff that encourages not only learning but teaches our students to be caring and responsible young people.
Very very happy with academic curriculum. Our child has a disability and has flourished at OHES. We wish however principal had better leadership skills and could unite his staff as a team rather than individual players.
Although our village proudly has high academic standards and achievement success in large numbers of our school's children; unfortunately the same high degree of academic advantage does not exist for many of our most disadvantaged vulnerable and needy children; namely our 'Special Needs' children. I have children whom are on both sides of this educational gap in our schools; therefore I do see firsthand the struggles hardship and effects caused by the shortage of academic services provided and available to our 'Special Needs' children within our village schools. Many of our families in the village with 'Special Needs' children have bonded united formed an educated parenting team specifically designed to help our children advocating on our children's behalf to begin closing the academic gaps and ensure our 'Special Needs' children have the same academic advantage as any other child!
High academic achievement great community support high level of parent involvement strong art and music great projects in each grade
Great school. Lots of individual attention. Village has a good sense of community and every child is known by name. Less than 1000 students in the whole school district.
