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 girls went to this school and had a wonderful Principle and Teachers..

    My son went to Hillside elementary and I have to say that although the teachers were very friendly I have to agrre with the parent who wrote the last comment about Hillside. They do not help or allow your child to excel in this school.

    I have two children that attend Hillside Elementary. They have been well taken care of there. The students and teachers work together to ensure the state expectations are met. There are a high number of undereducated and poor parents in the district and I believe the teachers work very hard to compensate for this.

    Hillside Elementary is a great place for any child to earn a quality education! The staff works hard to put each child's educational needs first. All students have the ablility to grow and learn through many different teaching strategies provided by highly qualified teachers.

    Children are not given opportunities to excel in academics or sports. They are held back and limited by inadequate staff and budget. Parent involvement is minimal but I think the staff is more comfortable that way because their shortcomings are not so transparent. Steer clear!!!
