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.

    Maire is an educational oasis! The awesome combination of teachers principal and support staff that go out of their way to make each day special for the children along with a strong community of parents who show up is rare! The PTO works hard to help support our school and foster an enriching learning environment for some of the luckiest children in our nation. Often when children move on to the middle school their parents not only want to stay at Maire but many do stay to be a part of our generous volunteer group. We are a family.

The principal and teachers are TOP NOTCH!! My children have received such a great foundation upon which to build their further education.
