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 like lowery school because the main rule in all school is every one has a right to learn and the teachers have a right to teach I think if we all work together as a big team our kids will change the world because we need those open mind

    This school is very good. They teach their students very well. Although some teachers may be a little harsh on the kids all in all its a great school. Also the football team was great and now the basketball players will do great as well. I recommend Lowrey MIddle School.

    Tis school os great i used to go to lowery and now im honored to put my own children in this wonderful school !!!!!

    I pulled my kids from Lowrey due to the lack of discipline many of the kids don't have at this school. Some of the teachers are great and can only do so much with the kids that act as if they rule the school and have no fear of authority. It's sad because I went to this school many years ago and my brothers and sisters went there as well. But things have changed and the things that kids get away with today would have been suspended during my time there. My kids go to Henry Ford Elementary and they are loving it. Their grades are up. Their confidence is high. Their reading level is beyond their grade they are in.
