As a parent of 4 Chassell Township School students, I am not surprised by the accolades that previous a previous reviewer has noted. Although I live in a different district, I have, at what has been at times great personal inconvenience, sent my children to Chassell- and I couldn t be happier with the choice. The entire staff conducts themselves with the utmost professionalism and integrity, and I couldn t ask for a better group of role models for my children to be educated by. They are all capable teachers in the truest sense of the word. The principal s door has always been open for impromptu visits for both pleasant conversation (which has been often) and concerns (which have been remarkably few). The support staff is top notch- cooks, janitors and bus drivers all work seamlessly to create a positive school environment. My family is in many ways new to the district, and the teachers took a great deal of time and effort to acclimate my children quickly into their new setting- this is by no means an easy feat, and therefore something I cannot thank them enough for. My children would hate to go to another district almost as much as they dislike taking a sick day from Chassell.

I think Chassell is a great small school. They have received many awards, such as being named "One of America's Best High Schools" by U.S. News & World Report. The "Center for Michigan" recognized Chassell as Overall Academic State Champions for their achievements in Elementary Math & Writing. Chassell was one of only sixty schools in the state to receive this recognition. Chassell Township Schools has a committed school foundation that takes in donations from past graduates and then turns around and donates money back to the school for worth while projects and programs, such as Smart Boards, computers and a car lift for an auto repair class, just to name a few. Chassell is a great place to grow up and get a great education.

Chassell Township School has been disappointing in terms of playground supervision and response to fighting and bullying. Teachers and staff regularly yell at the students, including one staff member screaming "SHUT UP" during lunches. We will be moving our children to a different school despite the inconvenience.

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.
