Posted June 30, 2004

I am very proud to say my kids attend the school.My daughter graduated from here class of 2004 she is very proud. Both my children have been on high honors must of the school year .The teachers and all the staff are so caring and down to earth. You have to want to volunteer to help out in anyway possible. I am the first person to uphold Volinia School I am very proud .I now any student that goes here has a fair chance and will come out feeling good about their self. And will want to move on to college or be successful in some way.Our son had problems in Dowagiac school and they could care less as long as they get there money from the state. Volinia is not like that it is about the students best interest. Thank You for this time to express my feelings to you.

This is a very good school. Since my son started there this year he is doing much better than he did in a regular school system. He loves going here. There is more one on one with the teachers. I would recommend this school to anyone who's children are having trouble with the regular school system.

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 2012-2013 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.

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.
