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 love this school very much my kids have been going here for 3 years now and i would not want them at any other school the principle is awesome and as a parent i know my kids are being taken care of i would always recommend this school and its also a EAA SCHOOL not a DPS

    this school is doing a great job with my child. This school is close to home and safe in every way.

  • (5 years ago)

    The school and it's children are progressing just fine but this new principle is on a power trip! I believe that her job quality should be brought up for review for disecting our childrens education to own her own beliefs rather than sticking to the requirements of a proper education!

    I went here and the school is to old for kids to be in.

  • (9 years ago)

    Teachers don't encourage the kids in a postive way. Teachers have been heard cussing at the students. Dress code is not enforced fairly among all students.
