There is a great overall feeling at Stanton. The teachers care deeply for the students. The small class sizes foster great relationships and offer unique experiences. Such as an outdoor classroom, school garden and many other unique opportunities that present themselves. The school seems very open to unique presentations where the students can learn beyond "basic" public education lessons, there is always a little flair. Which I think is due to the small class sizes. My kids love to go to school every day. I am very grateful for Stanton school.

I think E.B. Holman Elementary is an awesome small school where kids get extra attention from great teachers and a great staff who are dedicated to their jobs. They all do a fantastic job. The kids are awesome too. I think they should have longer recess and playing time. Playing time is learning time also.

E.B. Holman School is small enough that every teacher knows every student there, K-8. The classes are small enough that teachers have the time it takes to dedicate their time to any student that needs extra help. Everyone has a very friendly attitude and expresses their dedication to helping all students.

They get 5 min between classes and recess! To much active time. They need more time learning! They can play outside after school. We have schools for learning not for having recess.

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.
