The school curriculum, overall is pretty good. They teach things at a good pace and as needed. Although, quite a few of my past teachers were not the best. I would politely ask for them to repeat something and they'd just go on. Or, even worse, they'd ask me to leave the class for being disrespectful. Also, Not only Gaylord High School, but every school in Gaylord, says they enforce strict non-bullying rules, although, they do not. I have been bullied since the first year I came to Gaylord (four years ago) and It never stopped. I would tell teachers, principals, even the school board and no one would do anything about it. In the end I was usually in trouble for 'tattle tailing'. If you have a choice, do not send your children here. The students are rude and disrespectful to not only to other students, but to the staff and themselves.

We moved from down state 4 years ago and my kid is now a senior at GHS. Kid loves the school, teachers and activities! Good communication with parents and caring teachers. Great high school!

Good school, unfortunatly due to budget issues some of the non-academic classes have been reduced, example: drama, stage lighting ect. Does have a good Advanced Placment program for students preparing for college. Especially in the English area. Along with that students also have the oppertunity to take actual college classes and the school will pay for them to help you get a jump start on college basic classes. It really helped once I actually got to college.

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.
