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.

    This is a former school of mine. I went here two years ago while it was at the old location and I am in 8th grade now. Great school.

    My daughter is attending this school and it has been a great 6th grade program for her. I impressed with both the program and the teachers and with how much she has learned this year. The children take classes in science math social studies and English and also study Spanish music and art. The teachers find ways to incorporate the environment and being green into the different subjects. In addition to the typical 6th grade course-work they have completed projects on building a green home and desinging a green city. The kids spend an hour each day outdoors and walk to a nearby park a couple times each month. At the park they studied the soil studied birds tracked animals and built shelters from natural materials. They also studied how humans impact the ecosystem at the park. Homework averages about one hour per night with homework being due the next day. There are also longer-term projects that need more time to be completed. The program is a feeder school for City High/Middle and is in the City building which is great for transitioning to middle school. I highly recommend this program for children who are interested in learning more about nature and the environment!

    Hi i am a student at Center for Economicology in the 2009-2010 school year currently stationed at Riverside Middle School (north building) i think this school is great because it really teaches students how to save the planet and also about the economy wile they also do the regular objectives math science reading geography writing And sometimes wile stationed here we take a walk to riverside park witch is just down the street and we will take soil damples water samples and get to know nature then we will come back to the class room and test the soil ar water. I think Mr.Boosamra is the only teacher suited to teach us.
