Westwood Heights School District is failing their students. There are no extra-cirriculum programs for student to be involved in only the typical sports. There isn't a set standard cirriculum, and the staff is just out for themselves. There isn't hardly any parental involvement. There are only 3 parents in the PTO at the Elementary with over 500 students. There isn't a PTO at the middle and high school level. Children are arrested at the hgih school at least every 3 to 4 months. There isn't postive behavior reinforcement at all. Everyone that currently works there should be fired.

I am hugely proud of how far this district and this school building, in particular, has come this school year (09-10). The students are much better behaved, there are more extra-curriculuar activities, and the administration has been diligent about creating a healthy climate. Still room to grow but I am a very happy Hawk parent!

As a parent of two high school students at Hamady the morning drop off is very organized this year. Now we need to work on the pick up. Drivers please follow directions.

Hamady High School has no leadership in their principal and assistant principal positions. There are no extracurriclar activities for students who are not involved in sports. The administrative staff at this school does not care about these children at all.

I do not like this school at all. Some of the teachers are great but that is the only good thing I will say about this school. I do not feel that this district cares about the children just the politics. The principal is very good this year but they are getting rid of her next year and I do not feel that it is a wise decision. I will move my daughter out of there next year. Too many changes take place without a thought to the students.

I'm writing to the Drum unit that marched in the Memorial Day activities in Burton. I provided some ice water to your students. All the young men and women were very thankful and polite. I have taught for 17 years and it is a pleasure to see students that are so dedicated and devoted to their school. I have offered for your band to come to my house next year and I will provide the drinks and small snack for them until their ride comes to get them. Again it is a peasure to see such a group of polite students. Thank you Kim Carpenter

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.
