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.

    Very supportive nurturing principal. Teachers have been fantastic K-2. Teachers truly care about each student's learning.

    My 4 yrs experience at this school has been amazing. The parents want to be involved and that speaks volumes to our children. They see us excited to participate in activities for their education and they want to be a part of that excitement. Our children have had the best teachers. The teachers continue to show us that they love our children and want the best for them as we do. My son went from being an 'At risk reader' to reading chapter books above his grade level within 4 months of being in 1st grade. The reading program is very encouraging to our students and is making them smarter...and they love it!
