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.

    This school is one of the best schools in the world. The staff is excellent and respectful to every student no matter what religion. The principal now is Mr. Lawera and I have to say he changed our school and improved our scores in district tests. Students and their safety is always put first with his guidance. Our school is awesome. Thanks to ALL staff and teachers for making its students successful. (Once a student)

    I feel Salina offers the very best a school has to offer to young students. The quality of leadership and the consistent care and academic responsibility are always at the forefront of their wonderful program. There's a great atmosphere and professional approach that each person in the district brings. A far reaching program with a far reaching staff and philosophy.
