This is a great school for your child to attend to. surrendered with nothing more or less than a safe environment.

I have 1 child who has been in the school since kindergarten. I have been impressed with 3 out 4 teachers, especially her 3rd grade teacher. I am UNIMPRESSED with the academics, the principal, and school functions. With all the taxes we pay I would have hoped for a better school system.

I am extremely impressed with E.C. High School. My son entered E.C. as a freshman and came from a private school background. The staff's interaction with students and parents is excellent. My son has excelled far beyond what I had expected. I have only good things to say about the sports coaching stuffs. They are tough, but fair. The students I have met are respectful and responsible young adults, who freely give their time and talents to be involved in their school. They are excellent examples to others in the area. My daughter will transfer to E.C. and I am looking forward to an excellent school year.

I currently have 3 children in the school system with a 4th entering in 2 years. I really couldn't be happier with the progress they have made! The teachers actually spend time getting to know the students, not just in the class, but out of it as well. They know their siblings, parents, hobbies, etc. The principal takes the time to let the kids know when they have done something well, and when they could have handled themselves better. Their programs for the kids are expanding, and every child is encouraged to find something extra to participate in. We are a small community, and there is no 'elite' group here. We are fairly new to this area, and have not encountered any such problem.

I went to school here and some of the teachers I had are still here teaching my child. If you feel that your child is not getting a good education here perhaps it is not the teachers but rather the student who is not trying. I have seen no indication of the treatment mentioned in the other review listed here. I have seen teachers willing to help my child beyond what I had expected.

If anyone wishes to send their child here, don't! The teachers and principal swear at the children, they make the children feel as if they were a waste of the facultys time. If you aren't a member of the elite of the town, your child is treated extremely bad.

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.
