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.

    We are grandparents of two OLD MISSION SCHOOL children/students.....Occasionally we get the privilege of taking them to or picking them up from school...We love OMS and its special events that always include parents AND grandparents...and we also like it when the school provides extra help for subjects that children find difficult...the MEAP scores are impressive........

    Old Mission Peninsula school is an academically solid public school. It has an exceptional staff base. We also benefit from strong parental envolvment. Our children are well cared for and receive a high quality education. The location and structure is beautiful placed on top of a hill with views of West Bay and orchards. I believe there is no educational utopia. But OMPS is as good as it gets!
