Honestly, this school failed me. Not report card wise but for life in general. The teachers don't care and your can completely slip by in every subject without learning anything.

Arthur Hill is a 'fair' school for your children to attend. I currently have 2 children attending their, however I am not impressed with all of their academics. - I give it a thumbs up for exposing students to most cultures.- When it comes to major sports (basketball, football) it is top notch. - When it comes Some of the other extra curricular activities, I see a lot of mediocrity. - You will also find that a number of the teachers lack interest in their career. It has been one too many times that my children have been marked absent (unexcused) from a class, when they have gotten prior permission from the instructor or main office. - I have resorted to going online to check attendance regularly, and following up with the teacher via email to correct their errors. This can be very frustrating and time consuming.

I'm a senior at Arthur Hill. Overall, my four years at Arthur Hill have been pretty good. There are the teachers who are there I think only to get a paycheck, but the ones that have that passion to teach are the ones who make it worth coming to school. The students get along most of the time, but there have been problems with fights. School spirit is high, and staff, whether it be parapros, counselors, teachers, or even the principals try to help whenever they can.

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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Michigan used the Michigan Merit Examination (MME) to assess students in grade 11 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. The MME 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 state standard.

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 MME 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.
