The warm welcome we received from the Elms school district.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted January 10, 2006

I moved to Flushing school district from Flint school district. My eight year old daughter was very bord and started losing interest in school. When she started Elms Elementary I saw a sudden change in her. She wanted to go to school everyday! The school work was being taught at a higher level which for her was just what she needed. It was challenging and no longer boring. In which made me happy to see she was interested again in school! My son whom is five also started Elms this year, going into kindergarten. A month later I recieved a call from his teacher, sharing concerns that he was having a hard time with the work and he was not ready for kindergarten yet. Thankfully Elms has a great program called Junior kindergarten and that was perfect for him. Elms has alot to offer, and the teachers really do care!

My children have attended Elms for 4 years now, and I love it. I have liked every teacher they have had, and the parent involvement is high. I would give the school high marks.

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.
