Olivet has proved to be a challenge for me and my student. We have been here for a few years now and as much as they say they care, if your child is a bit overweight thr middle school teacher might tell your child well if you wern't so chunky you might be able to play harder. My child plays football baseball and basketball. It isnt like he dont get exercize. It hasn't just been the gym teacher. If your parents are not from Olivet or have family from Olivet your child wont be treated the same.

Unlike other schools, Olivet Community Schools are expanding due to high enrollment. This is due to a community that cares about their children. The community as a whole gets involved. You see this at sporting events, band and music concerts, and all extra activities. Not only to the parents get involved but the towns people as well. I am proud to have my children be a part of this wonderful community. Go Eagles!

After being afraid for the very lives of my children at our last school (no exaggeration!), my children ended up at Olivet through 'School of Choice'. They have chosen wisely. The teachers really care about their students. The support staff are friendly and helpful. The school is clean and I feel my children are safe. I believe my children are truly being prepared for the future. The teachers are not simply going through the motions. These people are dedicated professionals. I realize there is no perfect school - but Olivet is certainly on the right track!! Proud to be a transplanted Eagle!!!

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.
