In 2013-2014 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. Currently, GreatSchools' ratings reflect 2013 MEAP results; ratings will be updated after 2014 Michigan Merit Examination (MME) results are released.

    Ellsworth Schools is a great small school with all of the aminties of a large school. Our student teacher ratio allows us to get more across to the student as far as information as well as using differentiated instruction to its best. Our goal is 100% success of our students and the only way to achieve that is to have 100% dedication as a staff; which we definitely have hear at EHS. Our community is a tigh-knit community with close attachments and suppot to the school. Overall Ellsworth is a fabulous school and great community to live in.

    I loved Ellsworth! It was all family in that school people are amazing! Its so much fun there I miss being in the halls. All the teachers are one on one I for sure recomend this school. Even though its only about 100 kids its reat I was so happy there.

    We are transporting our two grandchildren from a neighboring community to Ellsworth schools and glad to do it. The teaching staff is wonderful. They hold high expectations...

    I have two children attending Ellsworth Community schools and find that being a smaller school is to their benefit. They both receive more 'one on one' with the teachers than they would at any larger schools and it allows the teachers to be more available for the students. And as you can see the test scores speak for themselves. Ellsworth Community Schools is a great choice for any student!
