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 came into this school in the 6th grade. I'm in the 7th grade now. I learned how to sing act and play the viola in my first year of being at that school. I think it's an amazing school academically as much as it is being a performing arts school. Our lower test scores were in math so this year we started our math essentials classes. Everyone has to take this class. I have the highest class in middle school which is Mr. Oldham's math essentials class. Advanced 6th 7th and 8th graders all have this class. Some of my classmates and I have an 8th grade math class which means we have class with 8th grade students learning math from an 8th grade math teacher. I made this long comment to tell people why my school deserves a higher rating.

    I went to this school for a job interview. The lady at interview kept rudefully rolling her eyes and making silly smirks. I wouldn't want to work for this school.

    I've worked at this school for a number of years I would give it a solid 8 for academic and peforming arts.
