despite the fact that this school had to install security camera's, I still believe this is a great school to send you kids to. even though there were camera's inside the school, my children still enjoyed coming to school everyday. all the staff are very well trained and are were helpful to my children while they were at this school. Great Job teachers, keep up the good work

Brand New Schools with a $49 million bond issue that touched every end of a true 'campus'. Involved teachers and opportunities for school and extra learning in many areas.

It's definitely small for the number of students in it. And the Sophomore hallway, where all their lockers are, is a one-way, one-lane street between classes. The lunch food is really good, though. And the electives have a lot to offer, if enough students enroll (like World History and Creative Writing never go through). Classes are getting to be too large. 30 students in an Honors class, for example. But the awesome teachers that appeal to both students and parents (most of the time) deal with that wonderfully. However, I feel that the majority of them in regular classes are teaching to the lower-middle level students. It drives me nuts. Gifted students are not given enough opportunities until Junior year, and then there are only about two Honors courses. The only other option is testing out, which is done over the summer starting at the end of eighth grade.

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.
