GM Schools Earn "A" for Student Progress on State Report Card
". . . One of the most important (and controllable) aspects of the state report card is what is referred to as the “Value Added” score. This rating represents the amount of learning that a student accomplishes during a single school year. I am very pleased to report that Groveport Madison Schools earned an “A” on our Value Added score on the 2015-2016 State Report Card." - Bruce Hoover, Superintendent
