Underwhelmed. I have now had three children attend Conant Elem. All the great things that you will find at this school come from the community and super involved parents, which is fabulous. My disappointment lies with the principal & staff. They are extremely academic, professional and politically correct. They have taken the individual child out of the equation. No warmth or understanding found here. Extremely disappointed with my child's K teacher this past year - truly lacking experience and maturity.

Conant is one of the finest elementary schools I've seen. As a teacher, it is refreshing to see staff working together and enjoying their jobs as much as the staff at Conant. The integration of specials classes into the hallways and classrooms is inspiring. A wonderful learning environment for all.

I currently have two children attending Conant Elementary and have been extremely happy with all aspects of the school & community. We considered private schools before moving to Bloomfield Hills and now have no regrets for sending our children to Bloomfield Hills Schools. Thanks teachers and staff for a great learning environment and the individual attention the students receive.

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.
