I attended Kelloggsville from 6th grade Middle School to graduation day as a senior at the High School. It is really a fantastic school. The teachers are all friendly and easy to get along with and talk to. I was very close with a lot of my high school teachers. The environment is great, the school isn't overly big or crowded so it's easy to get to know everyone. I can honestly say that going to this school was like having one big family. I graduated in 2011 and I miss it a lot. I often return still for big games. Being a Rocket made school more interesting and a wonderful learning environment. Keep your grades up and stay involved with sports and activities and you'll love it here! Trust me! Always a great day to be a rocket!(:

As a senior of this school right now, this school has improved. Our band courses are awesome even though i have never been in any of them. Most of the teachers at Kelloggsville really care about their students and since it is a small school there is more time for one on one time if your child needs it!

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 2013-2014 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.
