At Winton Hills Academy we have very high expectations for our students' academic progress. CPS has adopted the new Common Core Standards. These new standards were created to promote deeper thinking and prepare students for college and career.
Student progress is constantly monitored by staff and the district through the use of Powerschool and Dashboard. Each child and parent have access to both programs. Powerschool is used to track students' assignments and grades. Dashboard is used to track state and district testing information.
Winton Hills is implementing EngageNY for math, that focuses on deeper learning and the Common Core Standards. Grades Kindergarten through third grade use the district wide Journeys program for Reading.
All students in grades 5-9 belong to an Advisory Team. Advisory Teams are made up of a small group of students and a teacher. They are a place where students make plans: for school, for college, for their careers and for their futures. This is a safe time to talk about barriers and needs; to be serious, but to have fun, too. Advisories are helping students build academic and social skills by breaking down barriers, fostering relationships, strengthening listening skills and, most important, building trust.
CPS' My Tomorrow Initiative
My Tomorrow is a new vision of education for CPS in which every student is prepared for the remarkable future racing straight at us.
At CPS, we aim to ensure all of our students graduate from high school ready for the career paths of their choice. That's why all of our schools offer coursework that challenges and engages our students. We follow Ohio's Learning Standards to ensure our students at all grade levels build the skills and knowledge they need to be college and career ready.

Monitoring Academics and Testing
Students in Cincinnati Public Schools are tested throughout the school year to determine knowledge and skill levels. These tests measure students’ achievement to determine strengths and weaknesses so teachers can adjust instruction to meet students’ needs. Visit the CPS website to learn more about the testing procedures and monitoring academics.
Special education and related services are offered to children ages three through twenty-one in public and non-public schools. Visit the CPS website to learn more about our programs and services.
