Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP)

In 2013-2014 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. Currently, GreatSchools' ratings reflect 2013 MEAP results; ratings will be updated after 2014 Michigan Merit Examination (MME) results are released. 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. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

    This school deserves way more than a 4! The teachers are great ! The principal Mr.Zonts is amazing and very involved. The PTO is very active and always looking for parent volunteers to help out. We have had just a great experience the 2 years our daughter has been there! Great Great School!

    Haverhill Elementary is a wonderful school settled in the heart of a family neighborhood. The teachers are wonderful and giving and I can not say enough great things about the principal. He is a man that is for the kids and goes above and beyond that of any other principal I have ever known. His patience and generosity to his students is just amazing. Parents feel welcomed and students are happy and well educated.

    Haverhill is a wonderful school staffed by quality teachers and support staff. My children have received an excellent education while attending the school and have excelled in many areas due to the education they received. The teachers work hard to maintain close ties to the familes to help ensure that all children do well. This is a wonderful school!

    I didn't realize how good Portage Public Schools and Haverhill were until we had to move and transfer our kids. In our larger metro area the schools do not compare in terms of academic content enrichment programs and staff. Other schools cut their GATE and reading programs; PPS and Haverhill expanded them! We moved when my kids were in early elementary but the majority of the staff we experienced were great some like Mrs Della-Colleta were excellent! The principal is visible and available to parents student and staff. If a discipline situation is difficult he steps in and takes responsibility. Haverhill an older building in a middle income neighborhood proves everyday that it's the quality of the staff and programs not the newness of the facility that make a school successful. I would move back in a heartbeat!

    I enjoy Haverhill Elementary. The student to teacher ratio is wonderful. The staff is the best. If there is a problem they are open door policy. The music program's and all other programs are great and expand the child's learning. Parent involvement is great because the school is very big on parents begin involved. I love that my child is there. I have not any bad things to say about Haverhill. If I could she would stay at Haverhill for all school.
