My son graduated in 2013 with PERFECT ATTENDANCE for all the 4 years he attended. My daughter will be starting this fall of 2014 and is looking forward to follow in her brother's footsteps and father's and uncle's and aunt's.

Center Line High School has respectable teachers who are committed to their work. The part that really brings down this school are the students. Majority of students are do not take classes very seriously. Teachers are able to take their classes seriously, fortunately. I would not recommend this school if other school choices are available.

This school sets a lot of goals for itself and pushes to succeed. The Student Congress does a lot to achieve these goals. Each year I have been at Center Line I see improvements and more people getting involved. Each student who makes an effort to have their opinion heard does effect decisions made. It's also a great environment because pretty much everybody knows everybody.

Horrible school, good teachers but bad students that are very stuck up and resources for disadvantage students suck also. Don't send your kids hear period. No social life for kids that are new to the school whatsoever. SEND YOUR KIDS TO WARREN WOODS TOWER HIGH SCHOOL INSTEAD, YOUR CHILD WILL BECOME MUCH HAPPIER IN LIFE.

This school really could do better. They really need to focus on the students ideas and needs. A student like myself knows that this school does not put their all into creating the best work environment. It needs a lower tolerance for discrimination. Not to menchan they need to get a few bugs out of there system so everything can get out on time. I mean this school isnt the worst school around but its still bad. If they just listened to their students once in a while and not themselves then im pretty sure that this school would be ok.

This school is a great place for students with all different talents and abilities. There academic aspect of the school is great, offering classes to suit teens of all levels of learning. The autistic program is also a great part of the school, this program allows the autistic students to interact with each other and the other students. There are also a large variety of extra-cirricular acctivities to choose from. These activites range from sports, to theatre, quiz bowl, and numerous clubs. Many of the students are involoved in multiple extra-cirricular activities, which helps them learn how to balance time. They learn to balance academics, with physical activity, clubs, friends, family, and still have time for themselves to just relax.

this school is a dissapointment, there idea of traditional teaching is overall unsatisfying. students need more fun and entertainment in there learning...its better to learn in a way all students can connect to. every student is different just like a snow flake. they need to be tought the best way they can learn.

Parent involvement is not always accepted but those that do volunteer do a great job. Classes do not really prepare students for the real world. Filling out applications for colleges, jobs, scholarships are left to the parents & students to do allthough there are block seminar classes that these things could be taught in. Extracurricular activities are abundant if the students are willing to get involved. Many new rules have made the school seem more prison like to students but they have been instituted for the students protection. Students are not prepared for college in class.

Center Line is the best district around...programs were appropriately geared for college preparation and talented staff challenged the students.

Posted April 28, 2005

The programs at Centerline are some of the best. The children with special needs are catered to. They get what they need to succeed. It is one of the most friendlist schools around. By that I mean the staff. They are kind and are alwasy willing to talk. Some of there programs such as JROTC give teens an edge by finding out early is the Military a good choice for me. The Advanced lasses don't give honor credits so it is up to the teen to get the grade still and not slack off and settle for a B. Students are pushed hard and take a lot of pride in what they do. It is one of the most recognized schools I have seen.

It does offer a lot to students. Also has quite a few classes that will prepare the college bound studnet very well. But this school will not benefit children with 'special' needs.

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 2012-2013 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.
