LCS is braging to the local paper about a 1.2 million of funds donated by community for new sports complex. $200,000 from optimists, and help donated from Lapeer Bank and trust.(for refinancing) The truth is the majority of the other one million(donated) is from an energy saving project putting more efficient lights in district building and financing the savings as colateral. Taking out a loan, using the savings to make the payments instead of being reponsible and using the savings to keep up with increasing utility cost. The administration is at a loss of why the community does not trust them with our tax dollars. Bonds will continue to get turned down. Wake up LCS.

My son is in his 3rd year at East. The band program is wonderful. Most of the teachers are good. I am very happy with this school. I am afraid it is going to go down hill once they combine the 2 schools (over crowding).

Over crowding in this facility is just one negative happing here at Lapeer school. My son would like to drive next year, but because the facility parking is not large enough there will be Senior only parking next year. Now my son can not keep his after school job and will be traped on a bus for nearly 2 hrs a day. Not to mention he does not want to be on a football team with 80kids.

Anyone posting on this forum (or any other) claiming that Lapeer Community Schools will now, or at any time in the future (while the East campus is the main HS campus), have 2,000 or more students in one high school is purposefully being deceitful to push an agenda. I encourage all of you to be a part of the process, to gain an understanding prior to forming an opinion. Our district doesn't have anywhere close to 2,000 students in grades 10-12 today, let alone two years from now. Shame on you for willfully misrepresenting a plan aimed at securing a sustainable and innovative future for students. It's easy to post misinformation and much more difficult to get involved in the process. I encourage you to do a little research on current enrollment and projections.

My brother went to Lapeer East and so did my husband and his brothers and now our son goes to East and our daughter will when she gets old enough. Lapeer East has great teachers who are there for more than just the pay check. They are there for the students, not only to teach them but to support and encourage them as well. Lapeer East also has a great Band program. Our son has been in band since he was in sixth grade. When he got to East he had the same band teacher that his uncle had had at East. Although that teacher retired last year the new teacher is just as amazing and we would highly recommend that your child gets involved in the band program. There is a big parent involvement in the Lapeer East Bands program.

Counselors and support staff have done a great job with my son who was involved in the special ed program. Just the fact that he now wants to go to college speaks for itself. I salute the staff at Lapeer East. I would like to see the same kind of involvement from every teacher. Again, counselors, principals, special ed and special ed support staff get an A+ from me.

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.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Merit Examination (MME) to assess students in grade 11 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. The MME 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 state standard.

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 MME 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.
