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 give Cooke an Excellent rating because of the committed Principal Anthony Flowers and all the teachers who truly care about the children and look out for them every mornng and afternoon when the school day starts and ends. I also like the fact that Cooke is neighborhood type school surrounded by beautiful homes in a well kept area. In addition Cooke I might add is a 4 times State Championship school in the MLAG for 2008. All that shows is committee to quality learning. The school itself has an almost private-school type atmosphere. The chidren seem to be happy and I have never seen fights at the school ever! In seven years.
