As a new recruit to this community, I respected that they are very advanced and push for excellence. On the other hand, while trying to get my kids situated there I came to find the majority of the women are very arrogant and snobby. When they speak to you, their narrow minded opinions subliminally find their way into their statements. And the fact the your kids prior school may have fallen short becomes your "insufficiency". Just be prepared to be judged.

I have taught at this school for two years. It is challenging to render such an experience into just few sentences, but in short Dansville is small, safe school with a committed and knowledgeable staff and a caring and involved community. There are staff there who provide any student with a desire to learn an education well beyond the standard curriculum; and students which struggle can find ample help and support. The students I interacted with across the spectrum made a positive and lasting impression on me. That is not to suggest everything is perfect but no institution made up by people is. I would give it 3.5 stars

I moved to this area BECAUSE of the shools. There are more decent teachers and students in this school district than most in this state. The quality of teachers is truley amazing. My children are light years ahead of fellow students in other school districts. The best aspect of this school is that teachers do prepare our students for the future by making them responsible for their own actions and holding them to a standard that most schools could only dream of.

I am glad that I won't be teaching here next year. This is a very closed community, from the teachers, to the administrators, and to the students. This institution does very little to prepare students for life outside of small town Michigan, and they make no apologies. Students often say that they don't need to know what is being taught and insist that they don't need a high school education. There are a lot of decent, hard working students to be sure, but it's because they have taken responsibility for their own education where teachers, parents, and administrators have failed them. I wish them luck, but I won't be there.

I only went here for my freshman year but it was, by far, the most awesome place. There wasn't a lot of fighting, picking on or anything like that. Everyone was nice, the teachers were amazing!

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.
