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.

    My kids attend this school ths past school year one in the 7th grade and one in th 10th grade. I love the african american centered culture and the family like environment. I received calls when they were struggling in classes and followup calls as they improved. I like that the class sizes were small and the teachers were available to me and my children. I read some of the other post I can't say what the school was like during those years but now I think its wonderful

  • (3 years ago)

    I actually took time and checked out this school. The teachers have no books all the assignments are copied and handed out. The students are free to roam the hallways and walk in and out of classrooms disturbing other students. They do not serve hot lunch and there is absolutely no order or discipline. The majority of the teachers are substitutes which mean there are no lesson plans! Also they do not have a resource room teacher.

    I am very pleased with the education that my child is getting at this school. They truly foster a family-like environment and establish high standards.

    i went to this school for for 6th and half of 7th grade this is a great school for african american children to attend to I garentee you if your child walks in there not knowing anything about thier culture and is just uncontrolable and disrespectful they will walk out conpletely changed at the end of the year. Thier are lots of people to thank for these changes such as Mama Boneswa Mama Imani Mama Zakiea.If anything you will want your child to contiue to got to that school until the 12th grade and they will be dressed in some of the most beautiful african garb. and will be off to follow there dreams and already be ready for college

    The school started out great but over the last two years it has gone down tremendously. The classrooms have become over-run with unruly kids and not enough staff to handle them. I took my children out last year. One was lacking in math and reading skills. When the school first started out it was fabulous but that time has since pasted. If you want what's best for your children look elsewhere it's no longer here.

    This is a good school to send your child it has a great enviorment and the students are respectful

    I have attended this school since the 2nd grade I am now a senior. I must say when I first started this was a very prestigious school after all my mother had me on the waiting list since before pre-school and I did not get in until 2nd grade so that says something right there. The school began to fall around 2001 and with every year it gets worse it seems that they do not have the same values and principles as they once had. It is very unorganized and I sometimes find it hard to learn. Even with all of the chaos it is still a loving environment and I enjoy the classroom sizes. Overall i would not recommend enrolling your child.

    My child attended this school for two years (6 7 grades) I removed her from the school because they seem to be so unorganized. I enrolled her in another school only to find out that her reading and math levels were extremely low well under grade level. The only assignments this school was good at giving were book reports other than that nothing more. My daughter is now above average in her math and reading. Those two years was a total waste of time.

    This school is the weakest school..No suplies no nothing no lunch sometimes plus no academic education.

  • (7 years ago)

    Once you attend this school you never leave. as many times as you come back they welcome you. The school is a second home for all that attend. The teachers teach based pn the students capacity to learn and if the student's capacity is greater than others then they move that student forward while trying to develop the other students.

    Aisha Shule/ W.E.B Dubois has really helped my daughter in school. They work with her until she gets the answer. They have awesome teachers such as Boneswa Brock. She is so mature.

    This school is great for any child to attend!

    Aisha shule has caring and nurturing environment. The teachers know each child on a personal level which then in turn helps the teachers know how to help each student to the best of their ability. They do not have a big emphasis on Performing arts. They have a Chess Club Debate Team a West African Dance Team a Cheer Team and a Basketball Team. Their starting shooting guard is the teams shining star # 21

    This school provides a great opportunity for children to gain a sense of self that builds a foundation that last a lifetime. The curriculum is challenging instilling concepts that are African centered. I love this school because of its supportive nurturing environment.

    I think this school is what our children need to get the tools they need to succeed in life. The school strives for goals beyond those set by the state ans well as provide the cultural injection needed for our children. I am proud to be a part of the community.

    My child has attended the school since kindergarten and is currently in the 1st grade. However I must be very candid and say that there is a tremendous lack of learning challenges at this school. The teachers are also lacking in organizational skills classroom discipline and cleanliness of the K-6 building. I truly feel that the children are getting 'cheated' out of a good education. Lastly the school does not have enough qualified educators in order for the children to excel. I surely hope that the parents who are considering this school will think twice before shortchanging their child out of a great education.

    This charter school excels at promoting African unity and self-identity. The family atmosphere is supportive of kids from all backgrounds. There is an emphasis on performing arts and all kids participate in stage performances several times per year. Class sizes are small ranging from 15 to 25 kids in a classroom. Although traditional educational parameters are measured African values and interpretations are emphasized. Children are taught languages geography and customs of the African continent. Parent participation is greatly encouraged. Book Science and other fairs require 100 percent participation of both students and parents. Uniforms are required. K-12

    This school is great for its performing arts atmosphere however it greatly lacks organization academic focus and a real 'Education'.
