This school does an amazing job of tailoring the educational goals to the needs and abilities of the child. It creates a drive for doing good work and supporting your peers. It prepares the students for the next step, develops maturity and rewards effort. It has done a wonderful job for both of my daughters!

The school is a small 400+ school--The children get all the help they need to help them thru their high school years--if the school had not taken the time to help my daughter, letting her know she was important in every way, she may not be a well adjusted Senior looking forward to college.

This school is great for some kids but the acaademics at the school are weak. Students must take courses at other high schools or local colleges to really make the most of attending here.

Any student from any walk of life would feel welcome at Community, I am so thankful my child was able to attend and graduate from this incredible school. The student:teacher ratio and the staff involvement made this a perfect environment for my child.

Community High School is a great environment for teenagers. The teachers genuinely care for their students and work hard to develop a young person's mind to it's greatest potential.

I am a graduate of Community and loved every minute of my time there! The teachers were very supportive and excited to be there. The standard of teaching is very high. There is the opportunity to take courses at the University of Michigan which I took advantage of when I was in 10th and 12th grade. I felt that the open program really prepared me for college. I was self motivated and graduated at the top my university class.

CHS is a pretty unique place. With its incredible faculty and class-diversity, it can cater to even the most intellectually developed student. And due to its close proximity to the U of M, college classes are only a short walk away. But, Community also has an incredible arts program. Featuring a great theater group, its own photo lab, two art rooms for cermics to junk art, and a nationaly recognized jazz program. CHS allows a student to trully express themselves regardless of their academic tastes.

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.
