The Columbus School System

Columbus, Ohio, is the state capital and the largest city in the state, with a population of about 879,000. By some measures, it is one of the fastest growing cities in the nation, and it is already the third most populous state capital in the country. Approximately 55,000 students go to schools in the Columbus City School (CSS) district. The district oversees about 140 different schools, including several magnet schools that specialize in various academic disciplines.

In an ever-expanding school district, many parents feel a little lost when it comes to navigating their child’s academic career. Varsity Tutors can help you connect with a professional Columbus tutor who can give your child the academic support they need to reach their learning potential. Where does your child stand against Columbus school assessment averages?

Columbus Test Scores

No matter where in the United States your child goes to school, they would likely face nationally recognized testing towards the end of their high school career in the form of either the ACT or the SAT. In Columbus, however, your child will be expected to demonstrate mastery in their language arts and mathematics skills beginning in the third grade. Science testing starts in fifth grade, and yearly testing doesn’t end until the eighth grade. Once your child enters high school, they will take a variety of End-of-Course exams. These exams cover a wide range of subjects, including history, language arts, algebra, science, government, and biology.

Professional tutors are an excellent resource for students who are facing an upcoming exam no matter what school they attend. Many of the state’s best schools are in the Columbus area. You can find out how the top schools in the city compare to other high schools throughout the state in the chart below.

Scheduling time for a personal tutor to work with your child will give them a significant learning advantage that is very hard to find in public schools - individualized instruction. When working with their private tutor, your child’s learning style and needs will be the driving force behind the creation and presentation of learning materials.

While the student-to-teacher ratio for the largest high schools in Columbus is reasonable for a large school district, teachers still face difficulty in ensuring every student gets the attention they deserve. You can see exactly how these schools compare in the chart below.

Tutoring review by Zachary in Columbus, OH
We began this session by going over all of the assigned work from our previous session. We checked two math sections and one critical reading section. The student has greatly improved in her accuracy and logical thinking. She is scoring much better than when we began. I feel that she is really utilizing the test taking skills and strategies as well as using her own knowledge to be successful. We have one more session before her SAT test.

Tutoring review by Joseph in Columbus, OH
Tonight, The student and I reviewed for his test over exponential and logarithmic functions, practicing expansion, simplification, graphing, evaluation, and equation solving. He had almost no difficulty with the concepts or processes; all of his mistakes were minor, and most of them were unrelated to the core concepts. If he takes his time and writes a little bigger, he should have no trouble avoiding those.
