My family is shopping around for a place to settle and buy a house. We just moved down from Columbus and are renting in Covington until we figure out where to go.

In short, we went to see Loveland and fell in love. I had read a lot on this forum and the schools seemed really good by the comments. Then I looked at the Ohio Report Card, and while their rating seemed good in recent years, last year's grades are awful. Like D's and F's awful. Is this just an anomaly? Or is the district going downhill? We are absolutely in love with Loveland (ha) and will be heartbroken if the schools are going to be a dealbreaker. (Private education probably isn't feasible with our current income.)

Anyone have personal experience they can share?

I'm a teacher (Oak Hills Schools) and all I can say is that last years scores should not be weighed to heavily. Most districts took a hit. It was the first year of the PARCC test which has already been replaced. Why some schools did better on it may be directly correlated to how much administration pushed teaching to the new format. Maybe Loveland did not? My kids are in Milford school district even though I have a Loveland address (just south of Kroger off Branch Hill Guinea). I think the districts are comparable in performance. My general consensus is Loveland is more desireable but Milford did better in test scores last year. Loveland pays its teachers quite a bit more which is also an indicator. The clientele of kids are quite similar. Loveland schools is a smaller district as well. I wouldn't be at all concerned with Loveland Schools. You will get good and bad teachers in any district.

Loveland is still a good school district, I wouldn't worry about last year's grades. The soccer moms and the upper income types who send their kids to Loveland are large in number and are not going to tolerate the district going downhill.

Thank you both so much for the input. That makes me feel so much better.

TeacherinTN, if you dont mind me asking, what is the reason for sending your kids to Milford if you live in Loveland?

My section of Loveland south of Oasis Country Club is the Milford school district. So it is not a choice.

there are parts of Loveland that are Sycamore schools (west section near 275) and a 1/4 mile north of downtown Loveland is Little Miami district. Sycamore is probably considered the most desireable, Loveland, then Milford and last Little Miami.

Oh, ok. Thank you. This particular area is new to me so I'm learning as I go.

I grew up in Loveland and loved it. I grew up in the pheasant hills area and went to the schools until I graduated. As far as I know it is still a safe and wonderful place to live. I feel like I had a good education. They had quite a few course offerings that most public high schools do not offer.

Mailing address and school district do not necessarily coincide.

We love our schools in Loveland! Great place to raise a family, too, BTW.
