I am so impressed with L'Anse Creuse High School North, this is one school that really pushes our children to learn, learn, and learn some more. My oldest has graduated Class of 2013, and the the records that this school has broke were ongoing, as announced by the dean, 3/4 of the kids graduated we with honors, and national honors. I have 2 more kids to go and look forward to loads of success!

I have had 2 children that have gone to this middle school and I am very impressed, I have 1 more child to go, and I know without a doubt that I will be as pleased as I have been all along. As a parent I recommend this school and rate it a 5 star!

Very disappointed. My daugher was in a regular math in 6th grade. Good for her she did well. They put her in advanced math in 7th Grade. She finished with a B+ in class and an overall GPA of 3.8. In 8th grade put her down to regular Math. When I questioned those in charge I was told basically according to standardized tests she won't do well and other kids scored higher. Really.. how about giving the kid a chance & see how she does... don't we want to encourage more females to do well in the math & sciences? If there are that many kids with 3.8 GPA's and rocking the stanardized testss it sounds like its time to open up another advanced math class. Even after talking to Principal they refused to give her a chance at advanced Math. Terrible!!!!!!! How is this school encouraging her.. they are basically saying she will not succeed and holding her back. I wish I could take all the tax money I pay into the school system and send her to a school of my choice. She has hopes of being a Petroleum Engineer. According to L'anse Creuse North Middle School she might as well forget that aspiration.

I go to this best school I have ever been to! I attended atwood and now I am on to high school north. The teachers are awesome nothing compared to east, central, or south. There are some many things you can be involved in.

Both of my children have attended LCNMS. There are numerous extracurricular activities, and I might add, the sports programs are excellent.The quality of the acedemic programs and the parent involvement couldn't be any higher. This school would be an excellent choice to make for your children - I'd do it again for mine!

This school is the best. The students that go there are some of the best I've seen. The staff there is exelent. The subjects are very well taught. No one is left behind. I extremly like Mr. Brown and Mr. Davia, the two great principals I've ever had. I've been to Middle School South and its nothing compared to this exelent school! I actually like going to school!

Middle school north - home of the crusaders! i can't say enough good things about this school. The friendly office staff is a breath of fresh air. The teachers have been great. I even had a teacher help my son with his math homework over the phone for at least a half an hour,if not longer. She really is their for the kids. I get progress reports e-mailed to me and they have reponded quickly to any concerns i have. Some people just don't see eye to eye. Even teachers, parents and students. I have had great experiences with both my daughter and now my son. No regrets!

I think that this school has great potential, but there are some teachers that need to realize that this position is not just a job, but it is to help teach the young minds of the future. Most teachers there realize that, but there a select few that only teach for the money and something to do. I am not going to name names, but I think that parents should be able to see reviews of the teachers so we are more aware of what we need to deal with. The principle needs to not only back his teachers, but realize that when a parent calls, not to get defensive, and to actually investigate a complaint. Teachers need to be more aware that these kids are not drones, they are people. These issues need to be addressed.

My son has attended LCMSN now for three years. I cannot express the appreciatation I have for the administrative leadership there, as well as the teachers. There is a feeling of total comfort in knowing my son is in such good hands and safe. I only wish that same administrative staff could follow my son to high 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.
