From a student's view: This school is excellent. Academics are astonishing here. Most students actually complain about how tough the work is, but academics is taken very seriously. Just about every sport at MCHS is top notch. D4 Football(2/6 state champ playoffs win in past 6 yrs) White Mac Track(2nd highest) Soccer is interchangeable, top notch as well though. MCHS is a small school, with VERY minimal bullying of any sort. Teachers are caring and loving. MCHS is also a high testing school with 2 soon-to-be MIT college students. An all around awesome school.

My son is an honors student who has been a bit more ill this year. His absences have all been excused. Two days before school ends My son (a minor) is informed he has lost all credits. Upon trying to meet with the said official we were treated as if we were the children. I tried to tell him that we were not notified in the proper manner and that the absences say excused. He seemed focused on submitting one missing excuse from an orthodontist appointment. When asked who would review the appeal he said "me". Bullying at best, in my opinion. Well, "ME" get ready for a meeting with a parent who cares. My sons academic career is not going to be tarnished by a person who did not follow proper procedure. Truancy Laws were made to protect students not punish them. When and who gave Mr Joe the authority to tell me the parent.... I'm not capable of determining if my child is ill or not. Its 2222no wonder more people are home schooling!

I am a student at Marine City High, and I would have to say that this is the school I would choose to go to because it has more one-on-one time with the teachers then other schools can offer. I would say that Marine City is a great school. We have great MEAP scores and they (teachers) give us material that is challenging but nothing that we cant handle.

Marine City High School is a great environment for all youth of all ages and races. This is a great college-preparatory high school that offers many courses in many departments for the students knowledge, while helping them find their interests for their future vocation. MCHS's MEAP scores are above state average. The staff and students are great to get to know. The East China School district is very well organized and is for the student. With, of course, what the limited budget can offer us.

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. 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.
