This is an excellent school. My son went there and did well. Now he is in L'Anse Creuse High school and doing well.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 2, 2010

I was a student here 2002-2005, and it was awful. Staff and administrators ignore bullying issues. I was bullied all three years, and despite countless trips to the office and my parents getting involved numerous times, nothing was ever done. Often, they made things worse, not better. Staff also disrespect students, brushing off their concerns and sometimes even ignoring their parents. The zero-tolerance policies are completely backwards: I personally witnessed a student get in a fight that sent him to the hospital - he didn't start it or even hit back, and he was expelled. There is also ZERO challenge for gifted or excelling students. Everyone is forced to take exactly the same academic classes. I was bored to tears every day, and not only were there no "standard" options available, administrators were uncooperative and hostile when my parents requested special accommodation.


Posted November 7, 2008

This is my son's first year after transferring from another district in hopes of giving him a better education. Although he is doing well academically now and the teachers so far appear to be competent and challenging my son, the comment from the student (10/21/08) is correct. My son has endured bullying (both physical and verbal) on almost a daily basis. Although he is presently getting all A's, I fear continued bullying will eventually start to affect his grades. I have tried to give my son the support he needs to deter the bullying, but as we all know bullies will always continue to be bullies (and I know most schools have them) -- its too bad the 'good' kids are now expelled for standing up or defending themselves (I know, it happened to my nephew). Keeping my fingers crossed.

This school is okay, coming from a students perspective im in the 8th grade now, my work load is perfectly paced but last year i always felt like i couldnt keep up and had a really hard time. The girls are regular middle school terrors and had the worst times theres so much bullying dont send your child here if they have had problems owitbullying in the past

The counseling staff is very supportive, and the teachers are on the ball. Although my child has had some tough times, she feels supported. Teachers do let her know when she is off task, but the work load is acceptable. Overall, I am pleased with the 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.

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.
