My oldest Son has been at Elsa Meyer for 3 years now, and my youngest son just started preschool there and I am so happy that I have chosen to put my kids through Elsa Meyer, The principle is the best, always has a smile on her face no matter what is bugging her. The teachers are amazing, my kids are gaining knowledge like no other. My youngster's speech is getting so much better, My oldest surprises every day he comes home and tells me what he is learning. I love this school. Corunna School in general is the best schools I have ever seen.. Thank you guys for everything you guys have done, Keep up the amazing work!!!!

Our son has finished his kindergarten year at Elsa Meyer and is now preparing for the first grade. So far the experience has been great, we were very happy with the amount of learning that was acheived in the first year. We appreciated the parent teacher reviews and the school science fairs. The pricipal seems very devoted to the students and will gladly meet with parents at any time.

This year was my daughters first and final year at Elsa Meyer after attending the rest of her elementary school years in Bay City. Never have I ever felt so welcomed. The principal has been wonderful. Each morning and afternoon she stands outside the school to greet each and everyone whether rain or shine. She truly cares for the kids and the parents and involves herself tremendously in the school. The teachers are great as well. I will greatly miss my daughter being at Elsa Meyer and look forward to my son attending in the coming years ahead.

We joined the Elsa Meyer family last year for my only childs firstgrade year and we could not possibly be more satisfed. The principal makes it a point to greet you at all times and knows my daughters name by heart. Her teacher last year Mrs.Judd and this year Mrs.Louch this year are two of the best. I thoroughly enjoy being the head room mom getting to know more of the faculty and all of her friends. I am also involved in a workout program at the high school and she is joining the dance camp at Elsa Meyer tommorrow. We hope to never leave the elas Meyer family til junior high.

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.
