Reuther Middle School is the most wonderful school in the world. All the teachers are so kind sweet and supportive. They all want you to do your best and all have a passion for their job. If you or your child gets Mrs. Holden, Mr. McKee, Mr. Schafer, Mrs. Cass, or Mr. McGill, consider yourself blessed. The students all care about each other and the parents are actively involved. RMS offers a GREAT band program and a good choir program. The principal and assistant principal care about you, and they know each and every student by name. They do not tolerate bad behavior whatsoever. RMS has a Code of Conduct, a behavior policy, a "Crusader Code," etc... For new 6th graders, we the 8th graders mentor them and guide them into middle school. (So do not worry about your child. They're in good hands!!) Each of the 50 mentors is specifically chosen and trained by the principal. Overall, this school is amazing!!!!! Go Crusaders!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Reuther Middle School offers a supportive and innovative staff dedicated to the advancement of all students. There are so many reasons that we are proud of our school! Their creation of a STAT room to address discipline issues in an effective an ongoing way is an inspiration that other schools have requested presentations on. The combination of independent academic support and reward for academic success through the 'Chill Times' they offer help to support and encourage student achievement. Our Goal Achievement Program encourages well rounded students through a focus on community service, citizenship and extra curricular activities in addition to academic success. This focus on the whole student creates an amazing environment for our students to prepare for a successful experience in high school and beyond.

I would like to recommend Reuther Middle School in Rochester Hills, MI as a favorite school. The principal, assistant principal and staff are always putting their students first. They are caring, dedicated and passionate about providing each individual student with the best education that is available. It is great to see the students excited about coming to school each day and learning to be future leaders in the community.

I am a parent, I have written a review last week, end of March 2010. It appears you have not put it on your review board because you did not like what I had to say. Some of your comments are very old, such as 2005. The Principal and the assist have changed since then. YOU NEED TO UPDATE THE RATINGS and be HONEST. The school needs to get a new Principal and the Assist should be the Principal. Under Good Leadership the morals and good directions all things can grow. Again, it is not the teachers, they are great.

This is the perfect school to go to. The teachers are all very caring and supporitive. You could not ask for more. If you or your kids get Mrs. Wilson, Mr. Mcgill, Mrs. Cass, or Mr.Schafer, you are blessed. The students care and value education. I am a 7th grader at this school and about 60% of the grade is on the honor roll. This school rocks!!!

Wonderful school, wonderful administration, wonderful teachers. My child was new to the school last year as an 8th grader. If your child has Mrs. Cass, Mrs. Spada, Mrs. DeHondt, or Mrs. Chynoweth considered yourself very blessed like my child and family was. I only hope my fifth grader will have such a wonderful experience next year. THANK YOU!!

My child went to a private school in Rochester (Holy Family) and due to money issues we 'had' to send them to Reuther. This school is a diamond in the rough. I couldn't be happier with the teachers, administrators, and school activities. The academics are far more challenging than I had expected and they are getting my child ready for high school, college, and the real world. Thank you, Reuther community!

I go to Reuther and am very happy there I was getting ready to go to 7th grade but then some sad news came up I had to move! I don't wanna move because Reuther Middle School is Awesome. Every Parent thinks it's bad because it is the only school in Rochester with a 9 instead 10 but the new principal is from Hart so she will turn this school into a 10! So Parents don't think it's that bad because when I get into eight grade this school will be a 10! So give this school a try and go there! It's the best thing your doing for your child!

I was hestitant taking my child here for sixth grade and am so happy that I decided to give it a try. The teachers are knowledgeable, challenging, and caring. The principals are support and create a learning friendly atmosphere. Disruptive students are dealt with so my child's learning is not impacted. The intramurals are diverse and so are the study aides that my child can attend.

Reuther Middle School is a fun, eencouraging, and incredibly unique school. This public school is not for the light-hearted and will make even the shyest person into a social butterfly [if they make friends]. I am a student there [ I attend the 8th grade] and I could not wish for a better school. You will meet a lot of...unique and...different people there, also the students are creative and extremely nice/accepting.

I do attend this school, all i have to say is that all the students care about is their social lives. Very few students care about their education. There are way too many cliques. This school does not give the students a chance to become confident about themselves and to grow into good, independent people. The principal does not care about the students and their performance in academics. i don't think that parents should send their children to this school (or rochester high school). Not to say that the sports are bad. The students do give the least bit of respect to their teachers or peers. The teachers don't care about the students and could care less if they pass their class or not. If I were a parent, i would not send my kid to this school. i wouldn't recommend this school for kids who want to succeed in life.

As far as Rochester Schools go,This School is at the bottom in everything,including Academics,Sports,Intramurals.Im not sure who is to blame,but when a school seems to fail at everything maybe it's time for a new Principal.

I do not recommend this school for serious kids. But it is safe. Education and other activities is poor. May be they have funding issue.

I had heard a lot of negative things about this school and was pretty apprehensive about sending my sixth grader. I am glad we gave Reuther a chance. My son loves the school and I am happy with the learning environment he is in. He has great teachers in all his sujects advanced math,Language, science, band etc.

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.
