Terrific Experience! Our experience with Lindbergh was great, we really enjoyed the active staff, especially the music teacher. The principal is activley engaged and is always available to help! PTA is great, they have provided many needed items at the school including instruments and class room technology. Our best experiences were our 1st, 4th and 5th grades. Only thing we could offer for improvement would be more feedback from art teacher, very little work came home, nor available at conferences.

My youngest will be attending this school for the upcoming school year. I called to get more information about enrollment and to my surprise it was the principal that answered the phone as other staff have already started their summer vacation. She spent about 10 minutes on the phone with me calming my fears about my daughter walking to school for the first time, giving me approximate addresses where potential walking buddies lived in the neighborhood, advising me on exactly what information I needed to bring with me to enroll my daughter, and just being a source of reassurance. If my daughter's education at this school is as pleasant as my initial contact with the school principal I will be one happy mommy! I am an educator, and the time and courtesy that this principal showed is much appreciated! Very impressed so far!

i love this school and will never forget it. i am a former student and i recently graduated from this school and i will miss it so much. the teachers are so nice and involved and work hard to get us educated. i am absolutely speechless about what a great staff they have. this is an evergreen school that i am proud to say. the PTA has helped put us students so much and i really do love this school.

I can't say enough about this school. The staff is extremely competent, loyal, and very involved. My children vary in personality and learning abilities and there is not one teacher that I have been or would be unhappy with. Furthermore, the communication at this school, between the teachers and parents is beyond my expectations. Much of this success is attributed to the amount of parent involvement and PTA support. There isn't a single day that goes by without parent/staff communication of some kind. I can honestly say that I'm a proud parent and this school is truly one of a kind!

great school, great principle, great teachers. The kindergarten teacher is amazing. She is controlling 23 kids on her own class by herself and she is doing great job in teaching as well.

This school is ok, meaning that the kids learn the stuff they're supposed to learn, but really it engenders mediocrity. The teachers are overworked and understaffed so I don't entirely blame them; they spend most of their day controlling the kids. If your child needs extra help or is advanced and bored, too bad -- the teachers cater to the middle. The principal and teachers are nice enough in general, but I don't see the enthusiasm that would really make this a great school. Spanish is offered but the kids spend most of their time coloring and learning about culture. There is a chess club, an art club, opportunities for choir, but these were cut back last year.

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.
