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.

    Love this school I have two children who attend here. We are active in the PTO and work with the teachers all the time. They are dedicated hard working individuals. Class sizes are the best among the Elementary schools in Greenville. Would recommend it but I will not because I want to keep those class sizes down. Send your kids to Baldwin they always need more students. ;)

    Proceed with caution My daughter was being followed by a girl so she asked her to stop following her. My daughter was written up for bullying this girl. She then was suspended from school over sending an email to her teacher. Basically she sent it the night before asking something about "tomorrow." Due to her not being connected to wifi when she was in school and connected the email went out. So she was suspended for sending the email during school hours. The staff couldn't comprehend that possibility or admit the possibility of being wrong so stuck with the suspension. On the other end of the spectrum my son was "beat up" by three children outside the doors of the school even while parents were standing by. He was ignored and told me about it. The staff and administration did nothing. My son has also been threatened by a boy multiple times that he would "kill him" or "bring a knife to school for him." Nothing has been done because the boy has autism. If you have to live in Greenville good luck and please try to put your child in another school district. This was during the 2012-13 and 2013-14 school years.

    My oldest son has attended this school for 6 years in the ISD preschool and then K-2 grade in the special eduacation department. For these reasons I am giving this school a 5 rating because of all the hard work and understanding of my sons disabilities and the excellent work of the educational instructors my child had during his years in this school. God Bless those teachers (you know who you are) and the rest of the educational team at Cedar Crest Elementary.

    My two children attended Cedar Crest from K-5. I can't say enough positive things about the teachers and staff. A1 school!

    I am very impressed with Cedar Crest Elementary. I love the teachers my children have and have had in the past years. The cirriculum is wonderful and at age level. Music has been great as well as PE art and all other extracurricular activities.

    Great School love all the teachers and staff. Look out for the best interest of your children. Parents very involved in the school music and art and gym along with libary are great too. I have nothing but great things to say about this school.

    I do not recomend this school to anyone. My son is in a kindergarten class that him and I can't stand. There are special ed kids in his class (which is fine if they can function at the same level as the rest of the class) that do not function at the same level as the rest of the class and which I can see dragging the rest of the class behind. There is supposed to be homework every Thursday (teacher stated) that stopped coming home around Christmas. My child will go on a field trip without my knowledge ( I like to know where my child is during the day). My child started out the year(sept+oct) in a different school district and to this date is not as far at Ceder Crest as he was in the two months at his former district. I am very unsatisfied.
