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.

    Both my children attended this school. The confidence and structure it has helped to develop in my child is amazing! I love the fact that there are different ways for children to succeed that isn't only academically; talent and passion is just as important as academics (in my opinion)! My daughter has already met requirements to attend City Middle AND she has had success in the arts such as dance and music outside of the school

    Three things that have impressed me about Coit are the dedicated and caring teachers the strong sense of community that is fostered and the strong arts instruction especially in choral music.
