Toledo City School District Reviews

In the Toledo school district, teachers focus on providing a safe and accessible learning environment for students of every ethical and racial background. We promote science and chemistry at an early age, often starting in elementary or junior high. While we've had some major cutbacks in the music and art department, Toledo Public Schools still manage to supply a small variety of instruments of wind and string. These include trumpet, trombone, clarinet, flute as well as violins, cellos and violas.

I love my school district. I go to Toledo Early College, which is one of the magnet high schools, but I've been a TPS student my entire school career. I feel like my elementary and middle school truly prepared me for high school and set me up for success. My high school has given me numerous opportunities and the ability to grow as a student and individual. I have never felt a lack of support from my schools or the district. As a student I am TPS proud!
I liked the diversity and the friends I made there. However, I feel they have gotten unsafe of the years and lacking in their readiness to prepare students for the future. When I was in k-5th grade it was great because we were a small school that had a good community and great parent involvement. Then they made the school bigger and it lost its sense of community and lost sight of it goal to prepare he students. Teachers seems to teach to the lowest skill level instead of challenging kids who were ahead of others. My school also lost sports when I was in 6th grade and we had to play for a JR high school team with kids from other feeder schools. This cause a decline in students in sports which also correlates to a decline in academic accomplishments. Overall I feel he atmosphere has changed, even though I was at one of the better schools in the area, I still feel it lacked in some areas that are crucial to a students development.
