Leaving Capac was the best thing I ever did for my kids. It was a tough decision at first, but as Capac keeps cutting programs and providing less opportunities for students, it made me pull my kids out. Nobody who works there seems to be happy and it made it tough for me and my kids. They are so much happier now in Armada. It is so sad to see how quickly Capac is falling apart.

I agree with previous reviews, trimesters are horrible for our small district! Not sure how Great school gets their information about class sizes, but most classes are over capacity at 34 kids. The kids aren't being taught due to so many kids in each class. Teachers are overwhelmed, and the kids are running the show there. Many families that have been there for awhile, are now getting out!

This tri-mester fiasco is a disater. Good kids can not get the classes that they need. All the good familys are leaving for other districts at the lower levels.

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.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Merit Examination (MME) to assess students in grade 11 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. The MME 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 state standard.

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 MME 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.
