OSU Mentoring Program Helping Students Focus on College
Senior-to-Senior is a mentoring program that begins in a high school student’s junior year. The program was started several years ago and continues to pair a high school student with student from Ohio State University who can help them prepare for the college process.

David Smith, a science teacher at Groveport Madison high school, is involved in placing students into the program. He said students are selected by grade point average and family background.

“We are trying to get kids to go to school who might not otherwise go to school,” said Smith.
Student Poetry Included in National Publication
When library/technology paraprofessional, Penny Riley received a letter looking for student submissions of poetry, she had no idea it would lead to four Dunloe Elementary students’ works being published. 
Read 180 Program Getting Results
Reading is a fundamental skill that all children need to master to be successful in school and throughout life. Not all children enter school having mastered the literacy skills necessary to keep up with their peers. Groveport Madison has been offering an intervention program at the middle school level called Read 180 which is helping kids advance by more than three or four reading grade levels within just one year.
