I love Kaiser Elementry! I have two children that attend this school. One of which is special needs! The staff is wonderful. They continue to ask for help from parents, which is wonderful. Parents schould be a bigger part of their child's life. I have not run into an issue that was a bad one! They continue to impress me.

As a substitute teacher in this district (previously a full-time teacher before kids), I am very impressed with this school. The multi-age classroom experience is one of the best I have seen. The curriculum is comparable to other nearby districts. The principal is involved and happy to be there. He really makes an effort to get to know the kids and parents. The faculty really seem to have a team mentality, which I think is a big plus! There is an encouraging spirit about this school...I have considered sending my own kids here when they are old enough, even though I don't live in the district.

The staff and principal make you feel Welcome. Everyone is always smiling.Miss Jennifer in the office is 100% devoted to the kids.Mrs. Bauss has a special way with the students in the Resource Room.The parents are involved with either the PTO or on Field trips or helping in the classroom. Mr. Johnson the principal has an Open door policy- which as a parent is great.This is our second year at Kaiser and I cannot say enough about how wonderful the school is for learning. Thank-you to the staff.

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.
