Chagrin Falls Dominates Forbes
Chagrin Falls Exempted Village Schools was ranked eighth in Forbes.com’s recent survey of the “Best Schools for Your Housing Buck,” which found that the best high-performing public school districts in the country are housed in the Midwest.
Forbes compiled performances of the schools on standardized tests and calculated percentile rankings for every school within each state.
“We wanted full-service school districts with reasonably large student bodies, so we restricted our universe to districts that provide kindergarten through 12th grade, and have more than 1,000 students,” said Daniel Fisher, Forbes staff writer. “What we found is that most of our schools are in small towns within driving distance of major cities. They also tend to have highly involved and dedicated parents. Most have independent foundations to help cover school costs.”
“Chagrin Falls has once again been showcased to the world as one of the best places to live and raise a family,” said Superintendent Robert Hunt. “The strong partnership between our schools, village, and residents is one of the reasons why we have an award-winning school system that catches the eye of people around the country.”
College Planning Night
The counseling department of Chagrin Falls Exempted Village Schools is hosting a college planning night for parents of students in grades seven through 11 to help families initiate the transition from high school to college. The session will be held at 7 p.m. Oct. 16 in the Performing Arts Center, 400 E. Washington St.
The program will begin with keynote speaker Thomas Fanning, director of alumni and parent engagement in admission and advancement at John Carroll University. In a career spanning 25 years, he has delivered many presentations and served on various panels at national and regional conferences.
Given his breadth of experience, Fanning’s expertise includes all aspects of recruitment, admission review, financial aid and retention. He will facilitate a panel discussion with college admission specialists from DePaul University, Kent State University, Miami University, University of Mount Union, The Ohio State University and Washington University in St. Louis.
The evening will conclude with a college testing presentation by Steven Greenlaw of Home Tutoring Solutions.
