Relatively new facilities allow for classes to expand upon just what is offered in the book.


Posted October 15, 2009

GIMS is another fine example of the great educational programming offered in the GI school district. Mr. Tucker, the principal, is firm, but friendly - he truly puts the PAL in principal. The kids adore him, and he participates on all levels - even singing with the band at a recent concert performance. The majority of Tucker's supporting staff engage the children in fun and creative ways, really sparking and keeping the interest of the students year after year. The facility itself is state-of-the-art, keeping our students learning in a modern environment that keeps them on track to easily transition into the 'real world.'

I just wanted to take a minute to review this school. Due to my husband being in the military we move around every 3-4 years. This school system has been wonderful. This past school year they got a new principal and he was awesome. All of the staff was very helpful. if they said they would get back to you they did. in most cases that same day. When i couldnt make parent teacher conferences at the scheduled time i emailed all of the teachers and set it up that same day! One teacher couldnt set one up due to a family thing. but as soon as it was all said and done he emailed me immediately upon his return to school and we met 2 days later! theres nothing i can say negative about this school at all!! i only wish all of our schools could be as good!!

I hated to move so far away from my home town, but when I came here, I felt like I had lived here my whole life!

These schools are wonderful. Theteacher to student ratio is good, plentiful athletic programs. Great discipline, and every student leaving this school district after graduation has the foundation that is needed to achieve any goals set in their life. What sets this school district apart from most others, is the phenomenol parent participation in every aspect.

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.
