They are trying to do their best with the funding they have; however, they have tried to implement RtI in combination with Title I - which means it is much less intensive an intervention than it is supposed to be. As a result, the benchmarks are not met in a reasonable timeframe if at all. They are implementing RtI using Title I processes. In addition, they ALWAYS pull out of class rather than trying to incorporate into the classroom. In turn, they have invested in putting learning aides in almost every classroom to assist any student that is having trouble. This has mainstreamed the helping process in a positive way.

My Son and I moved here to Brighton from Eastpointe. He starts here tomorrow. We went to his IEP two days ago and I HONESTLY can say it was the greatest group of special education Teachers and staff I have ever dealt with. I would highly recommend this school.

Maltby is a great school that both of my children have enjoyed immensely. The communication between the parents/teachers/students is excellent. There is no reason why a parent should not know exactly how their student is performing at any moment throughout the year. The extracurricular programs are also excellent. The students have a real sense of pride while attending this school. I am excited to see what improvements that new bond will result in as the facilities need upgrading. Hats off to the principal and teachers for promoting a real sense of community, social responsibility and a love of learning (especially reading!). I would recommend this school to anyone.

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.
