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.

    Lincoln is an amazing school with great staff and kids. They are taught to respect different cultures and work together to make a stronger community. The diversity at this school is what makes it special because it reflects reality.

    i'm so mad i'm about to pull my son out of there! he is the only white child in his classroom which makes him feel bad. they never should of let that happen. also there is a lot of behavior problems in there that are very disruptful i don't know how any child can thrive in a situation like that.

    I have two children in the bilngual immersion program and I can't imagine them anywhere else. This program attracts the best teachers and it is excellent. The students learn in both Spanish and English and are well challenged and supported in their efforts. With a new principal who was hired last year this school has made a big turnaround with positive attitudes and good standards for discipline. This is the greatest school on earth!

    I have never seen a school that has been so unorganized in my life. There's no discipline with these children and some of the teachers are mean. You have children bullying other children right in front of the teachers the children try and tell the teacher and nothing is done but time out and it happens again. Then when the children are fighting they want to do something. They want to kick the children out with this ZERO TOLERANCE well how about having zero tolernace with theses teachers . They have good programs for the children but if the children are not cooperating and the teachers have this attitude about them then what? I am just sick and tired of walking in there and the children are everywhere and the teachers look like they do not care.

    Lincoln International Studies School is a wonderful place to send a student. There they learn Spanish and Japanese. The diversity and cultural knowledge that the children enduldge. Learning about the different cultures are great to start in kindergarten and work at it until the sixth grade. There is an exchange where students take trips to Mexico to learn about their lifestyles and children from there come here to share in ours. Lincoln is a great school to start off a child in the right direction.
