I would like to brag about the band and choir program at Endeavour . Mr . Hibbert is a fantastic teacher that the kids respect. My daughter loves his class and cannot wait to take guitar at the high school. I am so thankful that music is back at New Haven.

I'm going into the 8th grade and I love this school. I wouldn't want to go to any other place but it. The teachers are nice the rules are fair. But most of all it's home. Sometimes there is a lot of homework, but to quote Teddy Roosevelt 'The greatest prize life can offer is working hard at work worth doing.'

My children are going on there third year in the New Haven district and I couldn't be more pleased with the caring and knowledgeable staff. The first year my children attended (Sieffert) one of them fell ill and was hospitalized, subseuently missing a month of school. The school was wonderful, both teachers and the principal. His teacher offered to come twice a week to our home after school and tutor him. The caring response and dedication was remarkable. Needless to say, my son finished the third grade with out missing a beat. I honestly don't think I would've gotten that type of support anywhere else. They also have great extracurricular activities along with their academic programs. Parents are also closely involved and helping out where they are needed.

I love this school and more importantly this staff. Most caring teachers I could have hoped for. Thank you for a wonderful elementary experience for our two developing children.

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.
