Stout is a wonderful school with a great learning environment. The teachers are connected with the students and are vested in their learning and growth as individuals. My third child is now going there. My first two are both a success is high school--academically and socially-and I attribute a lot to the foundation that they received at Stout. Those who complain need to reevaluate what their child needs and not necessarily blame the schools but look in the mirror. It really does take a lot of parent involvement to create a partnership with the schools to have a productive student.

While Stout has some problems, this parent sounds like someone who did not get their way on some issue. Maybe it is their child that fits all the ranting that he/she did and was suspended so they want to be vindictive. There are some wonderful teachers who truly care about students. The school has the best technology in the district (7 computer labs, white boards in every class, 3 iPad carts). The facilities are top notch. Could some things be better? Certainly, but it does not diminish the fact that it is a good school.

My daughter has done exceptionally well at Stout, because of the caring teachers. Not only do they take time with their students to teach, they will take time with the parents when necessary.

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.
