My grandson's school is Eastland Middle. The teachers are very professional and personable with students and parents. The school work is challenging and the standards are very high. It is the best school for my grandson, Anthony Crew.

Coming from a student who went to this school for 7th and 8th grade, I can honestly say that this school is the best! The teachers are great because they really take the time to get to know there students and don't mind offering extra help to the kids who need it. Not to mention, they really know how to make learning fun! I also love how the school has a strict "No Bullying" policy. The only flaw are the principals, who think that handing out detentions/suspensions is the immediate solution to everything. Other then that, this school is awesome! <3

Roseville Middle School carries excellent programs that involve many kids into the middle school setting. I love the fact that they do not tolerate bullying! They have a peace circle program set up to teach kids how to communicate with their peers and adults rather than just handing out suspensions. Very innovative!

As a teacher in this school, I think the school is great. Everyone works together and has the students best interest and education in mind when we work in our classrooms. Parents need to be more involved in their child's education. Parent support in what we do everyday is a must!

My step daughter went to this school and I think it was lousy. Devoting time to boater safety in September and in Michigan by the way is a total waste of time. The Teams don't seem to work better for the students. Only the teachers benefit. My daughter who is only 3 mos will not be going to any of the schools in the Roseville district. I have been very unhappy with all of them.

The principle is always involved, the teachers are outstanding, and the transportation is great! Roseville school's have build a structure of an educational students. Roseville's Music, Band, Clubs and especially Athletics demands that youngsters not only hone their potential skills but they make sure that they develope the tools education provides; lifetime skills like hard work, team work, ehtics, integrity, respect, sportsmanship, citizenship and critical skills thinking, which builds character in their students and have them perpared for the big game of life. As parents you must be involved with the school as much as your child, because as a parent your their best teacher and their teacher at school are their best tool.

I use to go to this school when I was in the ninth grade. It was a great school. all the staff members were awesome. keep up the good work
—Submitted by a student


Posted August 1, 2007

The teachers are very poor educators the band class is a joke they must have hundreds of students and only one teacher with no assistant. the extra curricular activities are almost non existant my son was asked to join the jr. honor society once he did there were no activities meeting were not announced most of the time when they were they were cancelled. He dropped out of it. If you want or your child wants to be involved in clubs don't go to this school

I like the 'teams' for seventh grade. There are way too many kids per class IMO. Also there should be more than one level for english, math etc. My son needs a higher level. Also wasting the entire first 2 months of school for the meap tests is such a waste of time!

Posted October 5, 2006

The parents seem to listen less than the students, especially when it comes to dropping off there kids in the morning and other school rules -- parents should pay more attention to there kids and there school. Overall the principle and teachers are doing a good job. Having a team of teachers is a great idea. I have a 7th grader and an 11th grader that went to RJH.

My son is receiving a great education and lots of positive feedback and encouragement from his teachers. His Dad and I are really pleased with the school and the education our son is getting. We feel it has been a safe and challenging place for him to learn.

Posted March 24, 2004

I read the school news letter month after month, and I never hear any positive feedback in reference to the students (or should I say 'the children' as the principal continually refers to). These students (or children) will some day become adults, sooner than that, young adults, I just wish there would be more positive feedback from Mr. Zimmer. If you continually tell some one (or the children) that they are bad....then they become that way. Lets hear some positive feedback once in awhile!

Mr. Zimmer is a great addition to RJHS! His knowledge and teaching skills are an asset. Mr. Mizinski is going to be well missed at RJHS - he is as well a great teacher who is well loved by many students!! The principal needs to tighten disciplinary actions around the school (after school lets out).

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.
