I went here when I was in elementary school and it was the best school and it was very helpful for middle school and is a very good and inspiring elementary school .

Stadium Drive has been an over all good experience for my daughter, although I think she gets lost in the classroom with 28 other kids. (After coming from a classroom where there were about half as many students, it was certainly an adjustment for her.) The main teachers she has had have been excellent, and they have offered help when it was needed (bless them!). She hasn't exactly been challenged musically or artistically,which is a shame given the focus of the school.

Stadium Drive provides children with an exemplary education that is motivating, challenging, and fun. It is an amazing environment with competent, caring teachers, and second to none leadership by the principal. You will not be disappointed, if you can send your child to this school, do it!

This school focuses on allowing your child to go above and beyond their expectations. The school offers and features poets, artists whom come to the school to share their creativity and work. The children learn about fine arts, dance and drama. They participate in these subjects every week as part of their daily schedule that does offer the general elementary subjects also. This school is great and has been known to get your child prepared to stand in front of a crowd and proceed to read a book report too! The children are given careers, some speak on set cameras that give them the sense of having a career. I'm proud to say my children attend Stadium!

My child is in Kindergarden at Stadium and unfortuantely she has not been challenged enough. She attended a Montessori pre-school and was learning and being challenged all year and loved going to school. However, that changed in Kindergarden. I feel she would have been better off in a program where she could be challenged more. I think Stadium is a nice school, but with regard to Kindergarden it should be more challenging and flexible towards those kids who are better prepared. Perhaps the problem lies with the alternating school days, the curriculum, or maybe just the teacher(s). Maybe a GATE Program is the solution. Of course, I can not speak for the other grade levels, but I have friends whose children are in higher grades and love it. Stadium does have a lot to offer and we chose it because of the art programs.

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.
