I have two children that went to Reid from Kg to 5 th grade and we could not be more pleased with this school. Loved the teachers and the rest of the staff. We are going to miss being part of the Reid Family because that is what it felt like, a Family. We have very fond memories of the kids's projects and Field trips and Music Recitals and Halloween Parade and Walk-a- thons. Both my children are advanced learners and I found teachers willing to put in extra work to challenge them. I have nothing bad to say about this school. Loved the whole experience!!

Reid Elementary is a great school. My children have attended for 3 years and we have been impressed. Not only the activities they coordinate throughout the year, but the kindness and concern they seem to have for the students. We are sorry to have to leave this year and will miss Reid!

Reid Elementary is a great school. The teachers and staff always put the students first. They are kind and caring. Helping students become successful learners is their main goal and they work very hard to see that every student perform to their full potential.

I think Reid is a wonderful school. All of the staff does very well with the children and helping them reach their goals. I believe they go out of their way to make sure that all the children are being helped. The parent involvement is very high. Which is great! I wish there was a better music dept. More talent shows, concerts, etc.

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.
