My son attended Southwestern Academy and was literally on the verge of dropping out. It took him awhile to get use to the open campus but his grades and his attitude have improved remarkably. He feels good about himself now. I see the difference at home and in school. The teachers really care and are willing to work with you to help your child succeed. The community service activities are great. I really like the fact that the student can still participate in activities at their home school. I highly recommend this program to any student and parent as an alternative to dropping out.

My son was not doing well at Southwestern Academy. We enrolled him in Mott Middle College and his grades have greatly improved. he went from d's and e's at Southwestern to all a's and b's at Mott. He loves the smaller class sizes and the everyone there wants all of the students to succeed. It's a great school.

They have some cheesy rules, but the overall program is pretty good. I really like the fact that student have the chance to enter into college while they are still in high school. As far as Extracurricular activities, they are pretty low on that, its mostly like an artsy school. The teachers are the absoluter best...the principal leadersip is not the greatest though. There needs to be more disipline and they need to make students realize they cant be immature because they are on a college campus. Not a bad school though, one of the better ones I have been too.

Mott Middle College is the only high school within the Flint area that I wanted my children to attend. What could be more conducive to learning than having the high school on a college campus and be able to use the college facilities? Nothing! Although I wasn't enamored of all the teachers MMC has, most of them are the cream of the crop. I also believe that the low teacher to student ratio makes for a very friendly, community spirited environment. All three of our teenagers attended MMC and all loved their high school. We highly recommend MCC to any prospective students.

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 2012-2013 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.
