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.

    Do not send your child to this school! This district has an extremely high turn over rate. From 2008-2011the elementary school had FOUR different principals 2 of whom had no degree/background in education. The teachers are good for the most part but they don't last longer than 3-4 years because of the high administrative turn over. Students and teachers are at the bottom of the priority list personal and monetary gain are at the top. This school needs to close and the quality teachers need to find an employer who is worthy of their hire.

    I fill that this is a great school the staff really show interest in the kids education they really get involved.The only complaint is not enough extra curricular activities .Band football FHA groups etc....

    I think Detroit Community Elementary School has made great strides for the 2008-2009 school year. I think the teachers administration and support staff have grown over the past year. The school really makes student learning a #1 priority.

    This school is a good school the only flaw that I can complain about is not enough extra curricular activities for the children. Me personal I believe that the principal change was a great choice. The school has more discipline instead of the student bullying other students.
