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 transferred my daughter to this school recently and she loves it! Very clean school with so much to offer for the students. Office staff was overly helpful and nice!!!!

    I have had nothing but problems with this school. They do not follow the policies they have in place or are constantly changing them to fit their needs. The "no tolerance" bully policy is a joke at this school. I had to call several times and finally had my childs lunch changed after threatening to have her removed from the school only to have Ms Holder out the child in question in my child's lunch yet again just a few weeks later. Calls are not returned I guess they think you will forget about it and go away ? Mr Addelman needs to retire as he has no patience for the kids and I in turn have no patience for him. He is the biggest bully the school has. The principle is a joke. He will not return your calls and will not address a situation unless made to and Ms Holder one of the counselors is the biggest waste of space to even begin to call herself one. The staff simply does not care at all. My youngest WILL NOT be attending this school. I do not care where I have to drive him I can not do another two years of this dysfunction.

    This school needs more discipline in regards to students and teachers/staff. The children are dealt with appropriately when it is brought to the attention of a staff member if it is not is will be ignored. Most of the teachers are great and are willing to work with you/students to achieve the best; others I would have to question their loyalty to the student's educational needs and growth. I know we all work to take care of families and the uncertainty of a on-going contract this year has soured the mood; but I wish that the teachers that choice to take that out on the students would take their time this summer to re-evaluate the real reason why they choice teaching as a profession and consider the fact they are dealing with impressionable young adults.

    I agree with the other person a dress code that wont want to make the students learn espiecall not if they feel there being punished.

    Our experience (one former student and one presently attending) at BMS have been positive. The staff have always been professional and knowledgable in their teaching skills. Their manner of presenting the curriculm has kept the children interested and involved in the various subjects. The staff have always been available to address any issues that may have presented themselves. We are pleased to be part of BMS and Wodhaven-Brownstown schools.

    The District period has great issues. There are too many professionals that are way out of line and do not handle the best interest of children. The politics in the District are poor and We feel that each teacher should be evaluated annually. There are very dedicated Teachers but more in this District need to retire and re educate themselves. Poor examples and there should be a dress code- uniforms or direct colors for both girls and boys.We are firm as this is getting ridiculous and this needs to stop. We also blame the Teacher processing on MEAP testing a reflection of poor teaching. A lot of Teachers left and retired because of the main people in many departments-this is a fact!
