We are new to this community and we are so happy with this school. Our son had one problem in the fall, and the principle met with us and helped solve the problem. He loves his teachers and his principles and he is getting good grades. We are very satisfied.

The teachers are great, but I wish I could say the same about the ad ministration. As the previous parent noted, bullying is an issue and I have had repeated problems with the administration. All schools in Michigan have a bullying policy, but this adminstration clearly does not enforce or adhere to their school district's policy. You should speak with the Superintendent. She cares about the students and has helped my child.

Yeah the school is fine to a point, but when it comes to bullying, I feel the school don't take it seriously enough. My son gets bullied often and nothing gets done except for talking to other students. I think bigger consequences should be taken. This is his first year here, I thought this school had a heart, and they do to a point.

we are new to the area and my daughter is in the 6th grade and she is doing so good here. Her teachers are wonderful and she loves staying after to help. Mrs. Berry was so nice to us when we first came here so I am so glad to have my daughter at Wolfe.

5 months into 6th grade and I cannot express how impressed my daughter, her father, and I have been. She has gone from being doomed to failure by certain elementary school teachers, to blossoming into a 'can do anything' kid, with the encouragement and motivation of her teachers. Mrs Berry is outstanding, and strives for the student's best interests. Mr DiaMaria has inspired my daughter to pursue music, something I never could get her interested in. All in all, so far, this is a better faculty than I could have hoped for. These are teachers who seem to know the true meaning of their occupation, and don't mind going the extra mile to help every child succeed. Thank you Wolfe middle school.

This is a school where you will find teacher's to be cooperative and helpful. You will always find someone you don't care for but overall I am pleased with this school's dedication to student success.

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.
