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 love this school. My daughter is enjoying her time there and is learning more everyday. The staff is super from the teachers and support staff including the custodial staff are all A#1. Each year she has been there is better than the last. I look forward to my other children attending Woodland!

    My family just left the area after many years of children at this school. The principal teachers parapros office staff and even custodians are very professional. Parent involvement is high. The only thing I didn't like was morning drop off.
