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.

    We loved this school. As a military family who has to move around a lot my son had the privilege to attend this school for 4th-6th grades and he had a fantastic experience. We enjoyed and appreciated every teacher he had. He became very involved made lots of friends and excelled. Wish we were still there for my daughter to attend. We loved GIS!

    I just read one of the comments on this school and must disagree.I've had two boys go thru this school and felt that the teachers did all possible to make sure that the kids are ready to move on to middle school. The way they advance students from being young 4th graders to responsible 6th graders is impressive. I thought the teachers were very committed to providing the best education possible. Great Job. Remember that parent involvement is also key in a child's success!Can't wait for child #3 to get here.

    I've had 5 children through the Gaylord District. Two of them were ADHD with Learning Disabilities. I found Gaylord to be excellent in their curriculum professionalism and communication skills with parents and children. Special Ed classes and teachers went beyond my expectations. Office staff is cheerful and helpful. The only thing I disliked was the way teacher conferences were arranged in the gym and a parent had to try and hurry to meet all the teachers - this never happens with 5 kids lol - individual scheduling works better in my opinion.

    I feel this school has potential. The teachers need to make a greater effoot to teach the kids the basics. Follow through is not evident. Kids fall through the cracks to easy. By sixth grade they should be ready to move up to middle school many aren't. It is too easy to let the kids just get by move on even though they don't have the knowledge or study skills to succeed in the higher grades.
