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.

    As a parent I have not been real impressed with this school. I agree with the other poster that the principal is nothing special. The school seems like its been through a few assistant principals in recent years. Drugs and violence are prevalent...though I think they are at most middle/high schools. Teacher quality isn't the greatest. You find one really good one out of maybe four teachers. With all of that said my daughter seems to like it...though it's all she knows.

    The principal is incompetent. She was probably hired because she was friends with or related to the right people like too many other Rockford teachers.
