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.

    For a blue ribbon school I am highly disappointed. The school is way to big and the children that need a little extra attention and help don't get it. I tried so many times to work with the school to help my child and I was blown off. The principal couldn't show any less concern. Their policy on backpacks is crazy.

    To big and and can get very noise at times. They have a big lunch room. This school could improve if stop the kids talking when there not surpose to.

    Malow Junior High truly isn't as perfect as it seems. I'm a student there as of now and I'm struggling with classes that I would have absolutely no problems with in a better environment. The teachers treat students so much differently compared to other students. Favoritism is a big thing here therefore students don't get as much help when they need it. It seems as if they care more about the sports than academics. Sad because it really could be a great school just problems with priorities and teachers. -/

    Teachers are phenomenal. Great that at least they have them . Administration Staff definitely needs improvement on social skills.

    Malow has THE BEST faculty in the area. The school excels at developing young minds.

    Malow Jr. High is way too big. It cannot give extra attention to those children that may need it especially in the math and science department. I feel that the school puts extra emphasis on football and cheerleading and less on academics.

    malow jr high may be big but they keep it very neat for how many students

    The staff teachers and parents are outstanding. The curriculum is number one and the staff's concerns and strong support for the students well being academically and emotionally surpasses any private/parochial school our children have attended . Our youngest daughter will be attending Malow next year and she is very excited. We couldn't have asked for any thing better! We look forward to the next 4 years!
