I have gone to many high schools throughout my childhood. I attended Grayling high school for 10th and part of 11th grade. This was by far the best school i have ever been to. The students there are amazing, and the staff is incrediable. Dianne Tobin and dale forceir are the most respectfull fun loveing people i have ever met. There should be more people like them in the world.

I believe this school is fantastic. Your surrounded by teachers that want you to do your best and will go out of their way to help you and don't make you feel 'stupid' for needing a little extra attention in some areas. The students are very sprited for the school and are always supporting athletic teams! I am comparing this school to others that I know and 1 other I attended and I can say that I would be proud to say I graduated from Grayling High School!

I think this school is excellent, all my children graduated from this High school, and continued on to be successful in college. My youngest child is currently in the Honor College at MSU and maintaining a 4 point. This does not happen if you do not have a solid background. Mr. Lackenbucher is amazing. There are very many dedicated teachers at this high school

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.
