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.

    Speaking for the high school academics have been above par. While all schools have been affected by budget cuts Centreville isn't the exception; yet they have been able to maintain core classes and a variety of elective courses. Also the majority of juniors and seniors take career-specific CTE courses or dual-enrollment classes through GOCC. The proximity of the college best situates CHS to offer such courses. Through academic achievement CHS has ranked 1st or 2nd in all core classes on the ACT/MME assessments for several years running. Teachers care completely about the individual student and his/her success and go above and beyond to provide what they can for the student. The student body is positive and a great presence to see at sporting events. My students are school-of-choice and I wouldn't consider another setting for them.

    Centreville Schools is a smart school of choice option in St. Joseph County. Classroom sizes that allow personal attention teachers that go above and beyond to care for students and an administration that cares about the life and success of their students and families are just a few reasons to consider Centreville Schools. Centreville was also named a Rewards School in Michigan in 2012 and 2013. Strenuous budget cuts across the state have it made it difficult for ALL schools to continue to offer the smorgasboard of courses that were prevalent in the late 90's and early 2000. Centreville has done a fiscally responsible job of using their diminished state funding in a way that still provides state of the art learning in updated and well-maintained facilities. For higher learning above and beyond high school academics Centreville has the unique opportunity to offer and pay for students to attend the local Community College. Students can earn college credits while in high school and the school will pay for their classes. I have three children who have been in Centreville Schools Kindergarten thru 12th grade and wouldn't hesitate to make this my school of choice.

    As a former student of Centreville Public Schools I can say that there are things to consider before bringing your child to this place. For under-par and par-level students this school is quite acceptable for its academic level - however there simply aren't enough higher-level challenges available to the above-average student. Their college prep is definitely under-par and do not sufficiently prepare a student for the transition to college. The arts are very poorly funded while the athletic department is highly emphasized and overfunded. Though there are some academically-based challenges such as Science Olympiad and Quiz Bowl the preparation of students to compete in these events is often poorly-funded and poorly-done. I have in the past had to deal with vindictive teachers who dislike being corrected if they are mistaken - a very bad attitude to emulate especially if the goal is to send students to college.

    As a student of Centreville Highschool also having attended all three levels of Centreville Public Schools I can officially say that Centreville is a terrible school. Satisfactory is slim and students don't really get a full on education but all in all the learning environment isn't that bad. The school itself and everyone else are more focused on it's football team and athletics. I can tell you first hand that education comes second to the athletic system at Centreville Public Schools. The school barly has any money to pay for anything including heat in the winter. Students sit and freeze to death literally. Yet they have the money to buy new athletic equipment every year or anything that the 'coach' asks for. Do not send your children to this school.

    As a parent with two already graduated and in college and one more in high school now I consider Centreville High School an excellent school. Teachers were personally interested in the students well being. For a smaller school there were plenty of opportunities for more challenging classes through CTE and dual enrollment with classes at Glen Oaks community College paid by Centreville HS. A good blend of athletics and more importantly the academic emphasis. And also a supportive environment for students with a Christian worldview

    If people are considering centreville for schools of choice i would not recommend they send their child there. The 'learning environment' is narrow-minded and fails to fully challenge student potential. The emphasis is on athletics in this school--not academics. Centreville seems to provide adequate schooling for those students who have fallen behind but fails to provide opportunities for those ahead of the status quo. If you are looking to give your child a worthwhile four years of education and equip them with the tools they need to succeed after his or her high school graduation I would urge you to reconsider any decision to send them to centreville public schools.

    I have a child in each of the different levels at Centreville Schools. The smaller class setting and district seems to work well for my kids. The teaching administrative and support staff are very helpful encouraging and supportive. I have no doubt that my children will be well prepared for their future. In Michigan we have school of choice being in Centreville Schools is the best choice for my family.

    One couldn't ask for a better learning environment. All three of my children were well prepared for college. Teachers and coaches are fantastic.
