AUBURN ELEMENTARY IS THE WORST SCHOOL IN AUBURN HILLS!!!!!!! My grandson attends Auburn Elementary School and unfortunately this has been a horrible experience for him. He is only five years old and he has been hit, kicked and punched in his classroom, he has even come home with a cracked and bloody lip, not to mention being pushed around and teased by 2nd and 3rd graders on the bus. He is constantly being hit by a group of kids in his class so the other kids will have something to laugh about. He eats lunch alone because the other kids won t let him sit at their table. He wakes up every morning upset because he has to go to school. My daughter has meat with the teacher and the principal and nothing has been done to stop this from happening. Needless to say we are in the process of finding another school for him to attend where he won t be bullied every day. Do yourself and your child a huge favor and don t send your child to Auburn Elementary School; it is the worst school we have ever dealt with.

I moved out of the district last year due to economic hardship and tried to keep my son in the school under the Mckinney Vento bill which is one of the definitions under the act. I was told I am not eligible without them even doing the proper paper work and basically told that I am in my situation by choice and my son is being dropped. Forget the fact that he's already behind academically and finally doing better with medication and title I services. I now have to uproot him and put him in an even worse school than this one. Jennifer in the enrollment office told me I can't keep him in the school because it's "the one I choose!!" Yeah right hardly the case like I would choose to put my son in a school that ranks 1016 among elementary schools in Michigan! Trust me if I had an actual choice Auburn Elementary wouldn't be it! This school is not for the children or what is best for them. They are fully aware of our situation and still dropped my child. I now have to enroll my son in an even worse school and hope he continues to do well despite Auburn Elementary! I am sure if he did better academically this wouldn't be the case!

Auburn Elementary is a school that is committed to the students who attend there. I have 2 children attending and another 2 who will attend there once they are of age. I love that Auburn offers a diverse and rich cultural experience within the confines of a loving and committed staff.

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.
