My two oldest boys go here and as soon as my youngest is ready so will he. My boys absolutely love going to school there. And we all just love the staff. They do a great job making it a caring and safe place for our kids to be.

My son will be attending Kindergarten this year and choosing to be a School of Choice, I feel completely informed and updated on all events already. Looking forward to his first year of school!

My child attends Arnold Elementary and I am more than happy with her success and the education she has received. The teachers and principal are amazing. My child feels safe while at school and loves attending each day. We live out of district and drive our child to school each day b/c we know that she is getting an excellent education and that the staff is very caring, approachable, and helpful.

My daughter has been going to Arnold school for the second year. The staff is very kind and helpful. My daughter has also attended the Kiecher daycare program for 3 years, and she loves it there. I myself graduated from Michigan Center schools, so I feel very comfortable sending my child there everyday.

I think Michigan Center is a great school. I went there when I was younger. The teachers are very caring.

Not a good school system. We homeschool now. Very SPORTS related, with no accelerated learning programs! If your child is not into sports, then expect them to be chided and harassed.

All my children attend Michigan Center schools. The best teachers are there. I would recommend everyone to send their child there. The teachers really pay attention to each child.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

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.
