This is an excellent school with an outstanding young principal with strong values and some truly Outstanding teachers. Student body and parents are open and friendly. It's a well educated community with many professionals, male and female. It would benefit from more diversity. Well run, happy, buzzing School.

Solid curriculum, challenging yet fun projects and little pretension. This school is one of the best I have experienced.

After researching the state of Michigan, we found EGR schools in general and Wealthy School in particular to be the finest public district in the state. We relocated from a city 90 miles away to EGR just for the school district & I drive 1.5 hours to work each day. We have not been disappointed. School districts from all parts of the Midwest come to EGR to benchmark the schools programs. My relatives visited from Chicago and live in the acclaimed New Trier school district on the north shore. After looking at EGR curriculum and attending a class, they were convinced it was superior to New Trier. The only real negative is that EGR high school offers fewer AP classes than other elite public schools in the midwest. On the other hand, the residents of EGR could not be more supportive and proud of this great school system.

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.

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.
