This school is all about the numbers. They try their hardest to transfer students who need extra care.

This is an excellently run school. Ms Davis is an amazing principal. They are working hard to raise state test results, which of course is not the only answer to a Great School.

There have been many changes to this school starting in 2005. There is a new principal (she's good) and there has also been superintendent changes too. The teachers are very good. The school is trying very hard to make sure all the students needs are met. This has taken some time to figure out but it is getting worked out. Last year in 2006-2007 the school underwent a change by adding in the k - 6th from another school. That is why the test scores are down. It takes time to recover thoes kids from the poor education they were reciving form the other school. This school is the best I've seen in Flint. I have checked them out.

I love the fact that this school has so many activities geared toward enhancing eduvation. The after school classes are so beneficial and helpful to help give students a little extra push and at the same time they help make learning fun. I feel that most of the staff is highly dedicated to helping students gain a well rounded education and it shows by how many staff members dedicate after school time to these kids. I have one child in Eisenhower and she loves her school!

I have 2 kids attending this school. This is the worst school they have ever attended. The teachers are ok, but overlook many problems involving the kids. There is hardly any supervision of school grounds. These young kids cuss and physically hurt each other without a care in the world because they know they can and will get away with it. This school is on a very busy dangerous street and there is only one crossing guard, even though there are many ways for the kids to cross. Also, the parking lot is very small and cramped. You have to arrive at least 20 minutes early to make sure you get a parking spot to pick up your kids. The only good thing about this school is the after school programs which you can find anywhere. My kids will NOT be attending next year.

Overall, I think Eisenhower is a good school. My daughter attended almost 4 years. Most of the teachers are good and supportive. There are lots of after-school activities. The kids stay real busy during the school year. Sixth grade graduation was wonderful! They also went to camp and Cedar Point this 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.
