Battelle for Kids Presents SOAR Awards

Olentangy High School (OHS) and Olentangy Liberty High School (OLHS) have earned the 2012 SOAR Award for High Progress Schools from Battelle for Kids. This is the third year in a row each school has earned this honor, which recognizes academic progress in multiple grade levels and subjects during the 2011-12 school year.  The award also indicates the schools rank in the top 15 of the 830 buildings participating in the SOAR program.

Battelle’s SOAR program is one of the country’s largest value-added initiatives, helping ensure that all students are making at least one year’s worth of progress during each academic year. The program began in 2002 and, during the last ten years, has expanded to become a comprehensive school improvement collaborative, offering a wide array of benefits and services to Ohio school districts.
