I went here and i am pretty sure this school literally dumbed me and dropped my IQ. The teachers are amazing PEOPLE but their really not that great as teachers A lot of the kids here are stuck up and don't let anyone in. So if you're in high school do not switch here.

The School just needs caring people to do what needs to be done. By the people for the people. Not just the parents, but the community. There definately needs more community support. Overall it is an excellent school. What school doesn't need an adjustment in staff? Hopefully with the new bond passing it will be even better. GO Orioles!

We have been very happy with our experience at Morrice High. Our kids are getting an excellent education and are on the right track for college. Don't know that the co-principle idea is working right now. We would love to see a new principle come in next year.

I believe that Morrice High School has potential, but most likely will never reach it. Mr. Manino seems nice enough, he seems to care enough but seems afraid of confrontation, which results in very poor discipline of the students, as well as the teachers. Morrice teachers are very lax in their discipline. Their expectations are adequate, but they seem to do nothing to enforce learning and good behavior in their classrooms. This is a school that is in desperate need of change in all areas as it puts all of the students at risk of not being successful in their futures. Better discipline policies, enforcement of discpline policies, tougher but genuine principle, better teachers ( as many should be let go) and money to improve would be a great start!

I believe that with Mr. Manino there it has the potential to be a wonderful school. I believe the worse thing that could happen is for Morrice and Perry to combine.

this school is in obvious need of improvement. It's overall status is low. i do not believe it is a very good school. maybe if they can pass a bond they will be better. they also have very poor disipline issues.

The school lives up to its slogan 'Big enough for excellence - small enough to care.' Principal is focused on keeping kids safe and comfortable by being proactive on drugs and conduct. On-line courses offered to supplement classes offered by a dedicated and committed faculty.

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.
