The school isn't even about teaching anymore, just paperwork and being overworked and hurt emotionally, physically, and mentally.


Posted May 21, 2014

just TERRIBLE there are rats and mice they stay living for who knows how long without the janitors terminating them and the teachers dont give attention to the kids who need extreme help all they do is sit and sign planners and give detentions to those who don't even make a big mistake. i would understand if they talk back, get in a fight, or talking when the teacher is talking but no they sign it when you are asking a friend a question about the work when they are checking their emails and going on shopping websites and then when they finally take their eyes of their computer they automatically say give me your planner right now and they don't even let you say what is going on. In the beginning of the school year my son was getting bullied and o you know what they did... absolutely NOTHING and talk about the Lunch one day my son came home from school and told me that he found a hair in his food a number of times that is just disgusting i mean the law even says to keep your hair up and tied with something covering IT. For new comers i personally would not send your kid to that horrible school one of the worst ones in the district !

I love this school so much because it has great teachers and a great new principle that helps us very much when studying for the Meap.another great thing is that our school has the most technology out of the whole district. There is also something new where every time u misbehave u don't just get a detention, u get ur planner signed and its better.

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.
