I am telling you, trying to find out what school ratings actually mean is FRUSTRATING. Great Schools and the state both just changed their ranking system. Schools with A grades now have Cs, etc.

Anyhow, vent over...Anyone know anything about Kolling? Any new problems, like overcrowding? Would you prefer Kolling or Protsman for your own kids?

The state's A-F rankings from an overall school corporation standpoint have some meaning, but on a school by school basis they're tough to figure out. For example, Kolling had great scores the last few years then dipped a little last year and since they didnt make progress from years past, they almost certainly cannot get an A rating. So schools that were low then had a better yr than the prior one may get a better letter grade because they showed progress, which is heavily weighted. It's a good school. Just about all of its kids come from St. John, which most parents would be ok with as peers are vital to any kid's upbringing. Protsman will have the new beautiful school though starting in a year or two. Both are good but I'd probably lean Kolling, but don't let the difference between the two be the determining factor on where you decide to move.
