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.

    I graduated from this school years ago and it hasn't changed any except in size. I would highly recommend searching your school choices. After moving back here almost 3 years ago from down south I am disgusted that the first PT conf of the last 3 years they have recommended our child to be medicated yet their class room size of 20 plus children is way to much for these teachers to handle as I have personally seen the frustration and mediation seems to be the way of smoothing out the classroom as a majority of the parents we have spoken with have encountered the same situation what's even worse is if you don't do as the school suggests your child will be put on the back burner and that is a fact. I have also noticed that our child's class room play and the main characters are played by teachers children and once again disgusted by the partiality this school shows to these students vs the rest. Whatever happened to every child treated equally or whatever happened to kids being kids? I also just am disgusted with the fact the teachers seem pleasant and say hello when they see you at school yet in public they act like they don't know you. Do your child a favor don't put them here!

    Kingsley schools deserve to be recognized as leaders in educational excellence. The teachers care about the students communicate well with the parents and the yearly test results prove they are doing a fabulous job. Both of my daughters were well prepared for middle school after attending Kingsley Elementary and seemed much more advanced compared to many other children their age. Thank you to all the dedicated staff at Kingsley Elementary. All the parents I know are very happy to have/have had their kids attend this school. Keep up the great job!
