I have a special needs child in the expolsion program that the teachers (2 of them in the class) Let my kid walk out of class and never watched where he went or anything. I spent 2 hours with the school safety, and a school councelor trying to find my child after he walked out of a unit with 2 teachers that never followed him or even watched what direction he went in.

Great Teachers and Great Students that love to learn.


Posted August 3, 2006

We just moved to Michigan so I looked online to get test scores and information to figure out what school I wanted my son going in to. Scott school had the highest test scores so I chose them and its a regrettable decision. My daughter went through their preschool program which was great they did a very good job. My son did first grade and the teacher was very good but the overall lack of dicipline in the school was appauling. The children are out of hand and no one tries to keep them in line plus there isn't a nurse for when your child becomes ill. My son became severely depressed in the school from other kids behavior and developed quite a few horrible habits we are fighting hard now to break.

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.
