Both of my children attended Peck Elementary School. The attention they received was excellent!! Opportunites were abundant along with academic support. Teachers were very responsive to individual needs. As a result both have done very well

Peck school has really changed over the last few years. The majority of elementary teachers are very bitter and teach for the schedule, not for the students! With the exception of Mrs. Hendershot and Mrs. Galligan, who appear to be the only tenured teachers that truley care about the children! The teachers run the PTO, with no input from parents. The lunch is way overcooked and differs from the menu. I hope the upcoming changes will be good for the school, but that seems impossible with pinkslipping 5 of the best teachers! I hope my children's experience at Peck elementary improves, or we will be switching schools!

I agree this school has gone completely backwards and it is scary!!! Our school board is more worried about pleasing our superintendent than the taxpayers. The decisions being made behind public knowledge is pathethic and a disgrace. I hope they open their eyes before everyone pulls their kids out of this school. Virtual learning compared to a live teacher just to save some money is a slap in the face. When's the last time you paid attention to a monitor to learn? Let's support our community and our teachers!

This school has gone down hill significantly in the past 2-3 years. If the staff was as interested in the students as it is in gossiping it would be excellent! The cliques are among the staff members more than the students anymore.

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.
