I love this school so Much. I was new last year and everyone was very supportive and nice to me. At Wines we get a lot of work done. I would totally rate this the best school ever. What i really enjoy is that everyone at school is very friendly and nice. The teachers are very smart and kind and the staff are so sweet. Just a few weeks ago it was very hot and when it comes to spring then it will be very hot too, Thats why i really happy that we have new air conditionders in our rooms so it wont be so hot. I am willing to donate money to the school to make it better. GO BLUE

I was a student at Wines Elementary way back when. Ah, it brings back memories. I think you should know that this is a great school. I love the staff, I love the students, and I love the volunteers who dedicate a lot of time to make this school what it is today. Thank you, Wines Elementary. Thank you.

Amazing school! The faculty and staff are a strong, caring team focused on bringing the highest quality education to each child. The school has a warm, nurturing atmosphere while being challenging academically and fun socially. It's a great environment for kids and they thrive there! Wines is definitely one of the best, if not THE best elementary school in Ann Arbor!

Wines is the best! The principal, teachers, staff and students work so well together. My child feels safe there, everyone strives for excellence, yet plenty of fun is found at Wines, too. I can't say enough good things about it.

My son is in Mrs. Middleton's kindergarten class. The year is almost up and my son will be sad to leave. The class has resources to provide individual attention to students. Great teacher! Lots of parent involvement. Teacher keeps you informed about your child's progress. Open and productive exchange between teacher and parents.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 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. Currently, GreatSchools' ratings reflect 2013 MEAP results; ratings will be updated after 2014 Michigan Merit Examination (MME) results are released. 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. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
