I have had 2 kids go through this school, and didn't care for it either times. The principals don't welcome you to the school nor do the teachers never a smile or greeting. everybody is quick to send the student out of class whenever he speaks something the teachers don't want to hear. There is NO parent involvement and all the teachers are crabby. The principals are quick to suspend a child and there is no support from any of the faculty if your student needs extra help or is struggling. this school is one of the worst schools I have ever been to and I have worked in plenty of schools throuhout the years. Wouldn't recommend it to anybody!

this school is terrible. One time your child is bad he will be convicted for every little thing that happens here. For every tardy you get a detention or an in school suspension. My son struggled with tardies and being unprepared. They didn't help him at all just punished him. I never heard from the teachers regarding their concerns about my son. Thsi school is ran like a boot camp. They don't listen to children or ever believe them. The principals and the teachers are always crabby and very rare friendly. There is no support in this school they just dont wanna deal with the kids so they punish them. The detentions are so bad they have to hold a couple of sessions every Thursday. Its ridiculous and I would never send my child here!

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.
