I am not trying to support or bash the schools, I just want to make you aware of what people are seeing online when they are researching Middletown Schools. Keep in mind some of these reviews can be a few years old.

Middletown High School: 2 out of 10 Great Schools Rating
Posted August 21, 2013

Middletown is the worst district I have ever seen... The lack of organization and anything resembling quality is readily evident. This school is focuses on producing athletes and worker bees but not Intelligent people. Middie "pride" is a joke. Maybe they're proud that freemasons run the city which is a surveillance police state. Pride goes before destruction... choose home or virtual schooling if you live in this place.

I'm a recent MHS grad, and I can honestly say that I would never have thought to go anywhere else but Middletown High School. The amount of pride we have as Middies is unlike any other school. Putting on my purple and white always made me smile. Being a student at Middletown High School was a unforgettable experience. I had so many teachers who really cared about me and got involved in my life. I feel very prepared coming into college and I know that Middletown has given me a strong knowledge base. Not to mention the diversity present at MHS. The real world isn't pearly white, and it is nice to get used to that while you're growing up. I am blessed to have been a part of the Middie tradition. Once a Middie, Always a Middie!

I am an alumni of MHS. I graduated 2007. As a facility, the building is older and in need of updating. As for collage prep, there was none until i enrolled in Butler Tech. I always felt like an outsider. Always getting bullyed around with little teacher involvement. As compared to the teachers of butler tech, Middletowns teachers are not effective at teaching their subject with few exceptions. As an aspiring parent, I will not have my children endore the lack of education that i recived. Since MHS, I was an honor student at Butler Tech. Became an Eagle Scout. And now in collage i have a Perfect 4.0. There are much higher quality schools in the district. I was the hard worker that was held back by the system. There are no morals in the students.

Like so many people, we, too, moved away from friends and family in Middletown because of the failure of the schools. We felt it was irresponsible of us to continue to send our children through this system. When we arrived at our new home and school district, our kids were very far behind their new friends and they had to work very hard with some terrific teachers to get caught up. Please note, these kids were "honors" and "gifted" kids in Middletown. They are doing fine now, but they now know how to study. My one child recently said, "Wow. I could never figure out why you didn't like Middletown schools. Now I get it. NOW, I go to a REAL school." 'nuff said. I don't know what the solution is. Perhaps A LOT of discipline might be a good beginning. Cleaning the place might also help. It smells.

Middletown is the kind of school that will give back what you put in. I am a recent graduate and feel that Middletown prepared me for college about a well as any other school in the area because I was a motivated student while there. Though many of the students of Middletown are not motivated and they don't do anything but give MHS a bad reputation.

I am the parent of 2 Middletown graduates. One child was an honor student that had to work hard to obtain that status. She attended college and was on the Deans List through most of her college career. My other child maintained a B average only because he chose not to work hard enough to obtain A's. The education is there you just have to want it. Middletown has it's problems but overall is a good school with great leadership and staff.

Posted January 23, 2008

If your child is an honor student in AP and honors classes they will receive a very basic education. For the most part, they won't encounter the majority of the school. The general education is very sub-standard due to the complete lack of disipline. It is a very rough crowd and seems to be getting worse every day. I feel most sorry for the poor kids who aren't in honors classes but are nice kids - they have very long, tiring days there. Often graduates who were top of their class at MHS struggle at college - they weren't properly prepared. Not many parents are involved which is not surprising. The top students come from the families whose parents are involved and it always the same faces at all the different events be it sports, music or academics.

I attend Middletown High School (2004-2008) and in overall quality I believe a fair/good would be a adaquate rating. The school has it's flaws such as: Poor leadership, lack of teacher involvement, lack of parent involvement, and many teachers at this school could simply care a less whether you pass or fail. I highly dislike going here as often as I must. I have many friends, adore many teachers, and make outstanding grades. However, seeing such pupils everyday...many are...complete and utter failures.

Middletown High is a great school but they do not tolerate any kind of violence what so ever. If your student gets attacked at school and they defend themselves they are in just as much trouble as the attacker. I do not think this is right I believe you have a right to defend yourself when attacked. Other than this Middletown High School is a great learning environment.

Two days before graduation I found out that my daughter would not be graduating with her class. She had failed Economics, which is a required class. Even though I work in the high school, I was never once contacted by a counselor or a teacher to let me know that there was a problem. To me this indicates a lack of concern on the part of the entire staff. If I had known in advance that there was a problem it couldhave and would have been corrected. Now I must pay for my daughter to attend summer school. While I do not blame anyone other than my daughter for not making the grade,I feel this could have been prevented with a little communication.

Creekview Elementary School

3 out of 10

Posted May 30, 2006

I would like to say that the staff at Creekview Elementary create an atmosphere of learning for children. There is an atmosphere of high level skill building that goes on throughout the building as a whole. My children have gone to Creekview for their entire elementary school careers and have enjoyed their teachers. They love going to school everyday. I must say that I hate to see them leave and go to middle school, but the years ahead of them were prepared with a foundation at Creekview Elementary School.

Mayfield Elementary School

4 out of 10

Posted August 12, 2013

This school is ridiculous. The students are not aloud to talk during lunch if they do & barely get to a level they turn the lights out. I personally have witnessed this first hand while eating with my child. The principle has several control issues & is not open minded when new ideals are suggested (unless its her ideal). She compares her own children to the students. "My child has never missed one day of school other than being checked out early one day and she is now in high school". I'm sorry but last time I checked each child's health, family and personal issues are different. And just because your child has never missed one day does not make it the only right way. There are students who are on the Honor Roll who have missed one or two days due to a illness or emergency. I would NOT recommend this school to anyone! Believe me if I could change schools for my children I would & currently have my house up for sale for this very reason. Miss. Marsh was kid friendly & by far a better principal. The students fear Ms. Crook and I yet to hear one good thing about this school.

Verity Middle School

4 out of 10

I like this school because we get to connect with the teachers and they help us with our personal and school lives. Some of us like myself and my friends are actually interested in learning and doing our best in school and the teachers understand and respect that. But other students are just intersted in making a fool of themselves and trying to be cool and we have to deal with that and that takes away from our learning time. That's all Verity is recognized for. The bad things that happen but we never get recognized for the good things that we do. I think that's unfair.

Wildwood Elementary School

4 out of 10

Posted January 23, 2012

This school has lets kids come to school with head lice when they definitely know about it. Plus they have no bully policies. They told us that they have a no tolerance bullying policy, but when they are told about the problem, their solution is to just look the other way. That's their policy. This school is the worst school that I have ever seen. Some teachers teach the kids what they believe in, for instance: The teacher caught one of the kids cussing and said the only people who cuss is trailer trash. What happens to the kid(s) that were in the room that live in a trailer park? Their self esteem has gone out the window. Plus the principal is brand new and has no idea what is going on. She says she'll get right to a problem but will never follow up. Again, their solution to a problem is to look in the other direction and forget about it. My kids had a bullying problem and the principal didn't look into the problem until a month later, but still did nothing to solve the solution. Overall this school is a poor excuse for a learning center.

Stephen Vail Middle School

4 out of 10

Posted July 18, 2013

"Vail really inforces the bullying rule" Ha! not true. My child attended there in 2012 and it was a nightmare! My daughter's attitude changed, suddenly she would beg not to have to go to school, she stopped doing her homework, and the bullying is an ever day event! I went to the office, I spoke with the resource officer and nothing...I looked at my daughter crying and I told her how sorry i was and that i didn't know what else to do!! Finally i pulled her out and we did the home school thing....I miss Verity middle school terribly... it was a wonderful school that had an amazing staff!

Posted October 18, 2010

A public school experience is what you make it. I have a student at Vail and can tell you things are not perfect, but I have to wonder what some parents expect? To have a good student and/or a good citizen, it must start at home. Have you ever asked yourself what kind of parent you are? My child knows if he gets into trouble at school he will get in trouble at home. The people in this city sent their children to school with no training or instruction and want to protect them when they break the rules. Welcome to society. Your same little Johnny or Suzy will spend time in jail, then who will you blame? It is time for lazy parents to get off their butts, claim their insubordinate children as a product of their home environment and take the responsibility to straighten them out!

The school does offer a variety of academic programs. The school does offer extracurricular activities as well the after school programs are limited from what I understand due to the neighborhood that the school is located in. And there is a very bad lack of parent involvement. But the staff and principles are AWESOME!

We found Vail to be a wonderful school! The teachers my daughter had were professional, cared about her specific needs, and went the extra mile to make that very large school feel like a small close community. I do think that there is work to be done to increase parental involvement. Many parents have voiced a concern about not feeling welcome to participate in the school. I encourage you to get involved and not wait for the welcome mat to be rolled out for you. It won't be. But if you are ernest in wanting to help improve the quality of education for your child and all the children, you will jump in and do your part! Vail has a lot to offer!

I do believe that many of the teachers at Vail have a preconceived idea about their minority students.Many of these troubled youth have been pushed through the system up to this point and they figure that it is too late to help them.Vail is run too much like boot camp than a positive learning environment.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted June 30, 2004

I feel that for an inner-city school, Vail does an excellent job with their students. They have several programs and teachers that apply to children of all levels of intelligence. The discipline policies could use work, but with the new laws from the state, all schools struggle with this. The special education teacher my child had was excellent. She worked with him and be was able to have an excellent year and I feel confident him going to the high school next year and that was my biggest fear.

Posted May 21, 2004

I agree with the previous review. I recently learned that personnel (principal in particular) is quick to judge and is not interested in trying to help a trouble student but is very eager to get them out of the school. A troubled child needs a counselor (some one to confide in) not a drill sargeant who intentionally tries to provoke the student behind closed doors. Belittling a student is not the solution. I hope this school will take the initiative to help their students not deter them!

This school needs alot of work to do. Not setup for kids with learning and behavior problems, to quick to judge the problem on hand. Just push them through they'll be ok addatude. Need to spend time with kids to see what makes them learn better & get their input on the school.

Miller Ridge Elementary School

Miller Ridge elementary, is a great school,my foster children go here and they have improved so much in their reading, math and writing. I highly recommend this school.

I could not be happier with Miller Ridge Elementary. We moved into the district with the intention of sending our children to private schools. Our plans went a bit awry when my youngest son was diagnosed with speech and occupational therapy needs, and was not accepted into the private school of our choice. As a result he and my oldest son which attended John XXIII (K-2) began attending Miller Ridge. I believed my older son would be ahead of the other students based on his attendace at the private school, but results provided on Fall reading assessments indicated he was behind and tested below average on the third grade state reading assessment. I am happy to report that on the test given in the Spring he scored above average in reading and math. My youngest son receives speech and occupational therapy on an IEP at Miller Ridge, and the administration is wonderful with him. I could not be happier with this school, and based on the most up to date test scores, believe they should be rated higher than a 6 out of 10 on this web site. The principal of the school is wonderful and welcoming. If you live in this district think twice about wasting your money on a private school!

This is a great school with a wonderful group of experienced teachers. My daughter received a great education in the 5 years she was there.(first-fifth) This school has the nickname of being 'little Harvard', so if you send your child there be prepared for lots of homework and involvement in your child's education! Mrs. Gallagher, the principal is also a very experienced educator and caring individual. Mrs. Auvil, the secretary is also wonderful to all the parents and students. I would highly recommend this school.

My daughter has been going to Rosedale for 3 years and is now in the second grade. The relationship between teachers and students are wonderful. My daughter had Mrs. Brandenburg and Mrs. VanArsdale for Kindergarten, then had Mrs. VanArsdale again for 1st grade. These 2 teachers are wonderful. I couldn't have asked for better teachers for my daughter. The principal (Mrs. Gallagher) is extremely involved and very receptive to the needs of our children. They also have a great secretary (Mrs. Auvil). She is so great with the parents and students. I cannot forget Mr. Smethers. He is the janitor/maintenance man at Rosedale. The children love him. He knows all the kids by name and greets each one with a warm smile daily. My daughter and I love Rosedale. Thanks for being such an awesome school with such high regards for a priceless education! Every school district needs a school like this!

Rosa Parks Elementary School

4 out of 10

Posted August 14, 2013

Rosa Parks School is one of the best schools in Middletown. They are the only school in the area to receive all passing grades on the state's new report card. Their test scores have gone up double digit percentage points consistently over the past 4 years. All this can be verified through the Ohio State Report Card. It is too bad that an upset individual would like to downplay all of the staff & students' hard work over a personal issue. Keep up the good work!!!

Rosa Parks Elementary - Worst School in Middletown! It's nasty, the teachers are NOT properly qualified, half the kids are allowed to go to school with lice. People have bed bugs and their kids go spread them around the school and it goes ignored. The bus drivers pick on kids and ignore parents, the school does NOTHING! Including refusing to view a cell phone video of a fight involving a bus driver and then denying its existence. They did tell the parent of the kid with the phone video "that it is against school policy to record and he/she could be expelled!! Only the white kids here seem to be the ones "with learning difficulties and behavioral issues" (according to staff's assessments)HORRIBLE SCHOOL!!! The principal and superintendent should be fired and prosecuted! Wildewood is MUCH better. Or move to Liberty Twp and get into Lakota!!!!

Central Academy Nongraded Elementary School

4 out of 10

Posted October 28, 2012

All good things, it seems, must come to an end. And so it has been with Central Academy. The school was truly a unique learning experience before the last year or two, but it is rapidly morphing itself into an institution that "picks the winners" by blanketing all students with the same instruction and same homework, with an eye towards pushing out students who don't fit the narrative the school is aiming to create. The school is more about burnishing a story it created around itself than it is about trying to encourage individual thinking, which it once did spectacularly. Every year, you'll hear about people camping out overnight to get their children a slot in the middle school. As a disapppointed parent who has seen the decline, I would advise those parents to look into other alternatives. It is my intent to withdraw my children from the school as they approach middle school age. It's sti;ll a pretty good place up to that level, but once there, it's all about shiny happy faces for the cameras.

Back in the day, this school was 'the' school. Now, not so much. Dr. Suiter couldn't lead her way out of a wet paper bag. They have combined grades k and 1st, 2nd and 3rd, etc. So basically every other year your child is repeating a grade. There is no such thing as competition in this school. There is no parent involvement. They can't even get volunteers for the PTO. No one will help with anything. Also, be warned they only cater to underpriveledged kids, if you're not on assistance, drive your kid somewhere else. Unfortunately, I have sent my child here for two years, BUT we will be leaving. As far as education in this town goes....you get what you pay for. This is one BROKE school. They do nothing extra. Art class is drawing on cheap paper that is it! If your looking for the best...this is not it.

I've had 3 children attend this school. My oldest child was in the first kindergarten class when this school opened in 1991 and stayed through the sixth grade. My youngest child is now attending. Over the years I have experienced both good and bad. Initially, the school and staff were welcoming, open, and friendly. The structure of class grouping is wonderful for the development of confidence and reinforcement of learning. What has occurred over the years that troubles me is that so much of everything is now focused on standardized testing and not on the needs of the individual child. Many of the things my older children enjoyed have now been eliminated. (Sixth grade Luau, all students recognized at the year end ceremony with Kindergarten 'graduation') Maybe its that way everywhere now but up until the last two years, I had never considered sending my children to their 'home' school.

Central is a wonderful alternative to traditional perocial and private schools. This is our second year here(following two years at a local private)and my son has done nothing but flourish. The quarterly reports a far more thourough than a traditional report card. This school is desighned for parent involvement.that being said, you must follow the reading requirement, reinforce the units being taught, and ask questions about the progress reports.(ie 'Why did you get a 2 today? and 'What needs to change so you bring home a 1?') My only wish for this school would be to add foreighn language.However Middletown city school district needs to make this manditory curriculm.

My child dose not like this school, (central academy) and neither do I! This school has kids see the 20 children everyday, because from 8:00 AM-10:40 AM they see themselves. The for 15 min, thats all they see 20 other students. Then for the rest of the day they see the same kids they have seen all year long. Then when Winter comes, the children do not have recess so they dont get to see that other set of 20 kids that they usually do. So all day they are cooped up in one classroom, with the same kids of 2 different grades. 1st&2nd, 3rd&4th, and 5th&6th and since they dont have grades I really dont know what my childs really capable of. He gets 1's, 2's, or 3's! WOW! That really tells me something!

The entire staff is wonderful. I highly recommend this school for anyone thinking of transfering their child or moving to the city.

Both of my children attend this school. They have patience, which children need. The overall goal for these children is to be independent workers...self starters. Their leadership is unlike any of our other public schools. Kids don't just 'get by', they truly learn. My youngest son flourished, my oldest son has confidence, and I'd recommend this school to ANYONE K-6. Your child will get personal attention on things they struggle with and a gentle push on what they are really good at. Check out their state report card. My oldest son has scored avg to above avg on the state proficiencies. Central's staff is magnificent!I love this school! They also keep parents in the loop about EVERYTHING and demand parent involvement. Which makes me appreciate them even more. That seems to get lost in schools the older the children get. I give them 5+ stars!!!

As a Realtor and past County School Board president I am confident you will find Madison Local Schools above average through out. My two children graduated from this school and from my perspective there is a high level of parental involvement,both scholastic and sports related. They offer options for slower and advanced students as well as handicaped. The best way to get a feel is to tour the school and talk to the administrators.

I believe Madison Township is very fortunate to have such a wonderful school. Our acheivement scores are some of the highest in the county, while our per pupil spending is one of the lowest. Our special education department is one of the best anywhere. We have a caring and supportive community that really gets involved in the children's activities. It shows in the involvement of the students as well. You will find a large number of the athletes that participate in drama and music programs as well. The kids here really support each other.

The school has some excellent teachers and some extremely poor teachers and faculty, seems as if all faculty fall into one category or another. The education overall is great and most of the faculty are eager to help and communicate well with parents. The principle leadership seems to care however many issues are left unresolved which I feel compromise the safety of our students.

I think Madison is a great school. Of course I also think that there is a lot of room for improvment. I think some of the teacher need to take more time with the parents instead of rushing them off. I am very interested in how my child it doing and I want to sit and talk about it. Instead there has been a couple of times I was basiclly shoved out the door. I think they need to be more aware of this. Besides that I wouldn't want my child to go to any other school.

ktf, I was not aware of this site, but am not surprised.  It's kind of a mixed bag, with the people who are the happiest or the angriest taking the time to post a review.  Not exactly a scientific sample.

I am aware it is not a scientific sample, but you can be easily influenced by these types of reviews. If you use Zillow.com to look up houses for sale, at the bottom it lists the scores for the area's schools. And if you are moving to the Cincinnati and Dayton area from out of state and you see the schools scores listed below. Obviously you would influenced by which city to move to based on these scores. If the city and the Schools really wants to change it's image they need step up to start answering these posts on these websites, just like business do with reviews on Yelp.com. That way the readers know  that the school and city are aware the of the issues at hand.

I know many of us on MUSA don't see eye to eye with Marcia, but I do respect her for stepping up and answering the questions on this site. Especially when we hear nothing from the other people on the school board and city council.
