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.

Rating Breakdown
Test score rating2
The test score rating examines how students at this school performed on standardized tests compared with other schools in the state. Test scores are based on 2013-14 MEAP results from the state of Michigan.
College readiness rating2
The college readiness rating combines this high school's graduation rates with data about college entrance exams, both of which are indicators of how well schools are preparing students for success in college and beyond. This rating is based on composite ACT scores from 2013-14 and four-year adjusted graduation rates from 2012-13. ACT participation represents the percentage of 11th graders taking the ACT. Because the ACT is mandated in Michigan high schools, ACT participation is NOT included in the GreatSchools rating.

State Rating

The Michigan School Accountability Scorecard is the state's school accountability rating. Ratings are based on test scores, student academic growth, graduation rates, attendance rates, educator evaluations, and compliance with state law. The Michigan School Accountability Scorecard uses a five-color coded system (Green, Lime, Yellow, Orange, and Red) to indicate the performance of schools. Green is highest and indicates that most of the goals were met for a school, while red is lowest and indicates that few objectives were met at a school.

About the test

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 test

In June 2014, the Michigan Legislature required the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) to develop a new test for spring 2015, creating a need to reduce a normal three-year test development process to nine months. We have been working hard to accomplish this and are excited to announce our new assessment system called the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress, or M-STEP. The M-STEP will include our summative assessments designed to measure student growth effectively for today's students. English language arts and mathematics will be assessed in grades 3-8, science in grades 4 and 7, and social studies in grades 5 and 8. It also includes the Michigan Merit Examination in 11th grade, which consists of a college entrance exam, work skills assessment, and M-STEP summative assessments in English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.
