Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP)

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. 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. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

    Lemmer is definitely a 5-star school. Pur grandson is a special needs child. After two years of trying to get his old school to challenge him more (he's extremely bright) we decided to enroll him at Lemmer School. He has done a complete turn-around with his behaviors!! He was just advanced to the next grade level. Our grandson is finally in a school setting in which he accepted AMD is not labled. I could go on and on; but suffice it to say that the staff at Lemmer has given us a new child.

    Lemmer School has an active PTO pride in the students and an administrator that deals with day to day details well. It is a student oriented school with a well defined curriculum.
