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.

    What i love about Henderson well i love the ways the kids are protected going in and leaving the building. Most of the teachers that i have met seem to really care about the kids getting a education. Even though i have ran into quite a few kids with bad manners the principle worked really good with the staff to get the situation under control. Over all Henderson is a clean nice school but it can be so much better with more parent involvement.

    Poor facilities. Very rude staff. Disrespectful and rowdy students. Children attended last year and were subjected to bullying. Teachers stand around gossiping. Lunch time is like a zoo. Some good teachers but a lot of poorly trained students. A bad environment for a student to learn . Sad state of our educational system.

    Don't send your child to this school! The students has taken over. My children have been bullied at this school and the staff are reluctant to get involved and all the police officiers do is issue out tickets. My children are honor students and this has been very mentally taxing for us all. I am currently seeking a new school for them to attend. I wish I could give zero stars.
