We love Perry El. My two sons have attended and also my daughter. They are a great, caring dedicated staff. There are a lot of interventions in place for every child. We love this school!

I give a F.you say no kids left behind.but yet you do this in class, a child has problems you leave them to fend for them selves while you move the class on to other projects, then wonder why the child gets upset and acts out ? You created they problem ...some kids need the extra attention and you should know this.you say its because classes are to large.I say bull do your job and teach.not all are the same if a child is getting mad upset after he or she can't do something, don't desperate them because of this and label them bad.help them spend that extra five or ten minutes with to help them deal.

I find it extremely disarming that two of 6 reviews mention a bullying problem. And, lack of responsiveness by the staff to that and other issues raised by parents. Since have no access to my child's progress, I have no idea if he is a victim of bullying or not. The school should not allow one parent total control over a child's progress when other family members want to be involved in their educational progress and success. SHAMEFUL!

Teachers are ok, but bullies are a problem and if your in special education your screwed. Playground equipment is in desperate need of repair and extra courses like music and art are not good or non-existent. We now homeschool.

I think the teachers are doing a great job at Perry El., but this is our 3rd yr here, and we're very unhappy with the way problems go unresolved and bullies keep on bullying.

Teachers take the time out to make sure their students participate in class and do their homework, and they make an effort to have their parents get involved in the students school work and their personal life. A very compassionate community.

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.
