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.

    This is a fine school with some simply outstanding teachers. Mr. Forrester Ms. Martin Ms. Sabin Mrs Ingvarsson Mr. Hofman Mr. Whitaker Mrs. Kanary and Mrs. Tuskan are the all outstanding teachers that we have interfaced with. Ms. Martin should be cloned - words cannot express my appreciation as a parent for her care and effort in the classroom. Mr. Forrester's non-traditional approach to teaching stimulates the kids minds. Proof that teaching does not have to come from a cookie cutter approach. Mrs. Metiva gets things fixed when they are broken and addresses parents concerns. Office staff is right on the ball when kids are sick at school or whatever pops up - they get right on it. I could go on - just an outstanding school.

    I would give five teachers a high rating Mr. Hoffman Mrs. Hinkle Mr. Forrester Ms. Kiofski Mrs. Mesack. These are the exceptionally good teachers who were willing to work with my husband and I and our children.
