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.

    My children and now my grandchildren go to the East Jordan Public Schools. I am very please with the schools academics as well as how they work on issues such as bullying and peer pressure. The staff and teachers are always friendly and helpful.

    I feel fortunate to have my children attending the elementary school. Beginning with the principal who is compassionate forward thinking and responsive to the needs of parents and students. His leadership leads right to the staff who are equally caring and knowledgeable. What a great place!

    What a great collection of wonderful administration teachers organizations and volunteers that combine at East Jordan Elementary School. We are fortunate to have volunteers from the Crooked Tree Arts Council offer free string instrument lessons to our children. Our 4-H program in cooperation with the elementary school offers many different programs from soccer to junior master gardening and beyond. EJES also offers a wonderful art program with many unique projects. The principal is by all-means our best asset. He is always willing to lend a hand an ear or a voice wherever needed. His outgoing personality makes him a big hit with the students! He is always willing to volunteer for some silly stunt when the children meet(or exceed)goals. I couldn't ask for a better school system and I feel very lucky that I am able to get this kind of quality education for my children right within my hometown!
