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.

State Rating

The Michigan School Accountability Scorecard is the state's school accountability rating. Ratings are based on test scores, student academic growth, graduation rates, attendance rates, educator evaluations, and compliance with state law. The Michigan School Accountability Scorecard uses a five-color coded system (Green, Lime, Yellow, Orange, and Red) to indicate the performance of schools. Green is highest and indicates that most of the goals were met for a school, while red is lowest and indicates that few objectives were met at a school.

Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP)

Showing results for all students









About the test

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.
