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. I have 2 children attending and I think they are doing WONDERFUL. We are school of choice parents for a reason! TAPPS ( pto) Is wonderfula dn the pres Shawnn is a VERY hard working parent ad makes sure the kids have what thgey need AND deserve. Mrs. Accord (Ormsby) is the Principle She is AMAZING. She makes the Parents feel like they are truely a part of their children education. IMO this #2 rating is FAR far TOO low. Should m a MIN of a 7!!

    I have 2 children at this school and we enjoy the school very much. The teachers are easy to talk and so is the principal. The school keeps the parents involved almost everything. They focus on academics as well as teaching respect. Mrs. Ormsby is the principal and she is very dedicated to the school. I would and have recommended this school to many people.

    I have two children in this school one is in second grade this year the other is in first. i have had the best experience with this school so far. I had trouble with my youngest learning some things and her teacher Mrs. Cieciek took the extra time out to help her just a little more. Mrs Goodwin is the first grade teacher and my youngest will have her and I adore her very much she is the greatest with her students. The principal Mr. Hurley is awesome we couldn't get any better.
