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.

    Fantastic school with wonderful staff and heavy parent involvement. We have an incoming 1st and 2nd grader at Harvest.

    I have a son with Down's Syndrome in 1st Grade and a daughter in 3rd Grade. The School is doing great things for both kids but in particular we love the Principal and her open door policy. Our Son is accepted in the School mainstream for 80% of the day. The teachers and staff are simply marvellous. We are very happy with the School!

    This school is amazing! Our child's teachers are excellent the principal is hands-on and absolutely fantastic and the children are having so much fun while learning and becoming little thinkers! Even Kindergarten classes take Spanish the extra curriculars are great and everything is super-organized and well thought out from drop-off to pick-up and every moment of your child's learning experience in-between.

    Principal Betty Rosen-Leacher is fantastic! She seems to know all the students by name. The staff are like family and the atmosphere is supportive caring and even loving. I was so sad when my son aged out of this school last spring.
