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.

    North Hill is a wonderful school. The principal has a heart of gold and seems to treat every child as if they were his own. The PTA is wonderful. I would love to see even more parents involved but the ones that are are remarkable. Gym teacher is a national treasure Arts are highly valued and the enrichment programs/assemblies exceed what I hear from other schools in area....and those can be the moments that can really change a child's journey.

    North Hill is an excellent student centered school. The staff truly does whatever it takes to make all children feel successful. The teachers work hard as do all of the staff. There are many innovative programs in place to help build a positive learning environment.

    North Hill is a model school. The top quality teaching staff and administrative leadership is second to none. Your child would be very fortunate to attend this wonderful learning environment. The community service projects through a program named North Hill Helpers is such a wonderful opportunity for the fourth and fifth gradres to be involved with also. The only concern we ever had was that the building was so old but now it is a brand new state of the art building and is such a bright and happy looking place. The parent involvement is outstanding also. I would rate this school a cut above the rest. As I said second to none.
