Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP)

In 2012-2013 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.

    I love this school so Much. I was new last year and everyone was very supportive and nice to me. At Wines we get a lot of work done. I would totally rate this the best school ever. What i really enjoy is that everyone at school is very friendly and nice. The teachers are very smart and kind and the staff are so sweet. Just a few weeks ago it was very hot and when it comes to spring then it will be very hot too Thats why i really happy that we have new air conditionders in our rooms so it wont be so hot. I am willing to donate money to the school to make it better. GO BLUE

    Wines is the best! The principal teachers staff and students work so well together. My child feels safe there everyone strives for excellence yet plenty of fun is found at Wines too. I can't say enough good things about it.

    My son is in Mrs. Middleton's kindergarten class. The year is almost up and my son will be sad to leave. The class has resources to provide individual attention to students. Great teacher! Lots of parent involvement. Teacher keeps you informed about your child's progress. Open and productive exchange between teacher and parents.
