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 just enrolled my kid at this school. They staff needs to be organized in their job functions. He only became enrolled due to a parent taking her kid out of the school due to lack of a teacher dedication... I am just now finding out what the school dress code is for pre-k and he has been their for two weeks... I never received a school handbook to even know such things of that nature. I am soooo ready to take my son out of this school as well due to lack of commitment dedication and organization issues.

    Mann School is a neighborhood school that has a dedicated staff. All children have a full schedule of rigorous core classes enrichment classes and tutoring opportunities. All of my children have done very well thanks to the administration and staff members. Keep up the good work Mann School.

    This School was not a good fit for my son. He attended the Pre-K program here and I feel like he went in reverse when it came to his education. To make matters worst he teacher quits in the middle of the school year! What happened to the dedication and passion that teachers once applied to their job. We are currently looking into a different school because I refuse to let my child fall through the cracks because of the poor selection I made with his educational institution.

    So far the school is pretty good. My child has homework almost every day and she is learning at a good pace. The school seems to have dedicated staff and every day there is an adult supervising the safety patrol entrance to the school and the area where early children are brought before class starts. I have no complaints thus far.

    My daughter goes to Mann School. It is clean safe and has a caring staff and principal. It has lots of activities for the students and community that are educational and entertaining. It is a special place.

    My daughter is currently in 3rd grade at Mann Elementary and has attended the school since Kindergarten. I highly recommend this school because of their attentiveness and committment in math and the arts. There are also plenty of extracurricular activities which helps to keep the students excited about school. If you are looking for a caring family environment where teachers are committed to seeing each student succeed then Mann Elementary is a good choice. It's not just a paycheck for the teachers. They really care.

    I do not have a child that attends this school although I went to the school recently with my aunt who has 2 children who go to Mann and I have to say I was extremely surprised and pleased by the staff and how much it is very obvious that they do care about the children and there education. I am not happy with the school my son currently attends-ORA-and I am highly considering him attending Mann next year for 1st grade. The quality of the teachers in Charter Schools is very poor in my opinion.

    I have a second grader that attends Mann.When I first enrolled him I thought he fall behind because he didn't attend preschool but I can honestly say the teacher there really works hard with him. Now I can say that I have an all A&B student at home that loves to read and go to school I feel that the staff and principal have done a great job. That's because they are committed to their students and parents. (Cassandra Watson)
