Haslett Middle School Staff is very commited, supportative, caring and their students education is a priority.


Posted May 13, 2010

Both of my children attended Haslett Middle School and I was very pleased with the feedback I received from their teachers. They had an excellent academic program taught by some wonderful teachers!


Posted December 17, 2009

As a former student (now freshman at HHS), I can honestly say that HMS is a great school---but it has its flaws. The teachers are amazing; Haslett really has the best of the best. It has good extracurricular programs, and a nice building. The only thing I've found lacking is the quality of the administration. A kid in my grade bashed some other kid's head into a wall repeatedly in 7th grade, and an ambulance was called---I saw the kid who bashed his head in at school later that week. I would think an assault of that caliber would be grounds for expulsion, or at least a week's suspension---not a day or two. My parents have also been exasperated in trying to communicate with the principal(s). Email a teacher and they'll respond in 24hrs.---whereas we've had multiple important emails completely ignored by the principal. All in all, great teachers, poor administration.

This school is great. Everything is awesome, from teacher involvement, to extracurricular activities, and more. I've not been here for one year yet, and I love it. The teachers are very capable and involved parent-wise, and because of good teaching, many students do very well. Behavior control is good, but sometimes people who are just not controllable by anyone get a little out of hand. Parents are encouraged to play a big role, but unfortunately, not all choose to do so. Technically, the parents are the ones lowering parent involvement by not attending conferences, participating in events, etc. The teachers try to cope with this, and do very well. To me, that alone makes them superb. They handle kids who are rowdy very well (considering the sheer amount of them!) Overall, this school deserves a five star rating. I should know, I'm a student!

The school itself is nice in appearance, but lacking in control of it's students. Watching two children struggle through the school makes me wince at what they had/have to go through. The students are under very little supervision in the halls between classes, denied requests by parents that volunteered to assist in monitoring the hallways during class changes. Communication with parents is substandard at best. Outstanding teachers that have the ability to teach but many appear to shun the responsiblity of communicateing with the parents about essential items.

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.
