- Wooster City School District, OH
Alum: Considering the size and location, Wooster High School is a fairly progressive school. It fares well academically and boasts several successful clubs and sports teams, with many extracurricular options for a variety of interests.
The staff is great overall, but there are a few "hit or miss" departments. For example, the science and English departments are full of knowledgeable, fun teachers, but math has only a couple of really personable and easy to understand teachers. The administration can vary from passive to overbearing, but they do excellent at communicating with families and getting to know students.
The facilities are nice and up to date. The student body is fairly diverse, considering the school is in such a small area.
As an alumni, I had an overall very good experience here. I was involved, teachers were helpful and pleasant with me, I left feeling prepared for my future, and I enjoyed my time here.

Grand River Academy

- Austinburg, OH
Parent: The staff and teachers care about the boys and it is clear that they want to help their students be successful. The campus is pretty, the dorm rooms are basic – it isn’t the fanciest boarding school, but they get the job done. Most of the teachers live on campus, which helps when anyone needs special attention. They have a variety of class options, particularly around their “intensive” sessions that last 2 weeks. There are a lot of activities to keep students occupied. My son has been there for 2.5 years and has grown tremendously. His grades are up and he is in a club and sports. Small class sizes and the availability of the teachers keeps him on track. The teachers encourage him and applaud his successes; they will get on his case if he needs that too. He was failing in the public school and I couldn’t help him anymore. GRA staff and teachers stepped in and started him on a positive path.
