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.

    Boyne Falls school has many great qualities. It's sizes makes it very personal. The students compete academically with surrounding schools and staff have been getting better with communication. Boyne Falls School has made some positive strides in the past couple years. A great place for my children with perks that far outweigh the surrounding schools.

    I went to Boyne Public and they have teachers that really care its a small school so it allows them to take time for every student.

    Small school and top attention on academics with great staff and small class sizes!

    I think Boyne Falls is an excellent school and it strives to make education the best it can be. Kelly Matelski- Parent of 3 students

    I'm very disappointed in the teachers because they don't work with the students or parents with the grades or assignments. They wait to long into a trimester and then the student gets called up by the teachers or counselor about the grades. They have access to the phone numbers of each parent but they don't take advantage of it and use it to get the student on track before its to late. They wait until the student is so far behind they can barely make up the homework and grades so they can move on with their class in middle and high school. I'd like them to fix it but instead i always have to go to school myself to take care of the problem.

    Boyne Falls school is perhaps the most involved school I have seen. Programming is very limited and there is not much in the way of elective courses but the basic educational content is superb.
