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.

    Disappointed there was no Halloween parade in the school because of the rain in previous years we would have it in the gym. Disappointed that they took the microwave ovens so kids could not warm up pizza. I am disappointed that there is no explanation of reason for the changes. I am disappointed my son was in the hospital and was out of school for a week and his homework sat on the secretary's desk with no one caring enough to call me and telling me it was there.

    Davisburg Elementary provides a wonderful positive learning environment! Both of my children are developing intellectually with high regard to responsibility and respect. The best part... they love school!!! I believe this is due to the staff's upbeat professionalism. The principal and teachers are delightful role models! I'm very thankful for the involvement of esteem building within the curriculum. I receive many compliments on how pleasant and well mannered my children are. This behavior is encouraged and supported by the staff at Davisburg Elementary. As for parent involvement... the Davisburg Parent-Teacher Connection (PTC) is second to none in regards to providing opportunities for parents and students alike. The PTC really supports the concept of how important the family and community is to a child's development. We are thrilled with the education and community involvement that Davisburg Elementary provides!! *Just a note The Student of the Month program has been eliminated.* Excellent School!

    The only thing that upsets me greatly about this school is the unfairness they have when they choose a student of the month. I had to watch my son cry every month because he is never OR has never been picked for a studen of the month and he has no idea why - I think its unfair to point out and say 1 child is better than the other. -

    I can't begin to explain the difference between Davisburg and the last school my children attended. I feel welcome here my children feel welcome here and I feel like both of their teachers are happy to answer any questions I have. Davisburg has something you feel when you walk in the door. It is smiles excitement and caring. My children are challenged and happy and learning so much more than they did in the past three years (two years for my younger child). It's worth my drive from out of the district every day.

    Once again my children have started the year at Davisburg Elementary with smiles on their faces. Both of them couldn't wait for school to start (which hurt my feelings a little but that's OK)! We choose to transport them to Davisburg although we live out of district and can't begin to explain the quality of education in comparison to our home school in a neighboring district. In the two years they have been there they have gone from average work to above grade level work scoring in the highest category of standardized tests. In addition the art music and gym programs are great and I am welcomed into the school at any time rather than feeling like an outsider. Great job Davisburg!

    Very substandard levels at Davisburg sure your child might have fun and like the friendly teachers- but education isn't number one there- you would be surprised what your children are not learning by attending this school. I don't want my kids to start college and have elementary grade levels- which is where Davisburg leaves you.

    Davisburg Elementary is a great school. There are many other options for schooling in the area including private and charter but we choose to stay at Davisburg because of the overall picture. The teachers parents and staff are all wonderful. Every child is made to feel special. Lots of activities for the kids. My kids are above average in reading writing and math and I owe this all to Davisburg Elementary and their great teachers.

    My son came to this school after attending private school. Its true the staff are wonderful and make everything fun - and that hides that there is not much going on. No homework no academic standards other than teaching what will be on the MEAP. They try to teach everthing with fun and games. My son loved this school. and in 6 months had not learned one new thing. I had to pull him out or he would have ended up happy but academically behind his peers in other schools.

    We love Davisburg Elementary. The academic programs are excellent and are 'tailored' to your childs specific needs....something not available in many schools. Extracurricular activities are great especially the art and physical education programs. Parent involvement has always been outstanding. The 'Parent Teacher Connection' produces the following annual events Art/Music Fair Science Fair Author readings Fun Fair Fall Festival Talent Show Davisburg Dance Night Santa's Secret Shop (where kids meet to make presents for their parents) 5th Grade Farewell and much more. A Wonderful school.

    I believe Davisburg Elementary is the best school in our area. I feel so strongly about this that I drive my daughter there every morning even though we are out of district. The teachers truly love what they are doing smiles run rampant throughout the school. This school is a school where everyone knows your name and cares about you.

    Great School! Your child will not only be educated but will also have good character. This school actually teaches Character Education about being responsible caring respectful self-directed individuals. This school not only welcomes parent involvement it encourages it. Student have well rounded education including gym music art technology & library 1-2 times every week. Teaching staff is highly qualified and nurturing.

    I am glad to see good 'ol Davisburg El has not changed since I was a student in the late 70's. my 3 son's do (& did) attend this school. The teachers are great as well as the entire staff. Lots of activity along with educational games lots of reading & learning one on one time too! My children love this school me too. Davisburg is the right mixure of fun inside learning. Their pick up / drop off service is great.. I wish they had that 5 years ago with my first son!
