I am a graduate of Saginaw High many many years a go! both my parents went to this school as well, I am married now to a Service man and went on to have a wonderful Blessed life. I traveled the world seen many places, I now Live in Texas, and love the schools systems here, I wish Saginaw Michigan could see how beautiful the schools here is and how the parents are active in the childrens lives at the schools, the sports uniforms at each schools is so nice and colorful. The buildings for all the schools look like colleges. look the schools up! like Bel Air High, Andress High, El Dorado High, Franklin High, El Paso High, just to name a few. you can see where the Gov. put money in the community, I would love to see a change in Saginw High School. this school is a great school just ran down.

The professionalism of the staff lead by Ms. Summey and the expectations they uphold for the student body makes this a great school for children to live up to their fullest potential and to succeed in life!

I recently graduated with honors from Saginaw High School in the Spring of 2007 and I now attend Howard University in Washington, DC. This institution does not deserve much of the negative and unfair criticism it receives. During my time at Saginaw High I found it to be a very close knit environment that gave back as much as students put in. It is a good institution of learning, for students and parents who seek the true and positive aspects of it. I and many others are shining examples of what can be achieved through this institution when a positive work ethic and high standards are set by parents.

Im a parent of a student at Saginaw High. I feel that this school is unsafe unfit and needs to take more interest in safty and grades. This school is no dout a good school but needs more attention on those two subjects. Are kids needs more guidence and the school and parents should be more supportive in these factors. The school should get the parents mor involved because parents cutting students and students fighting student should be stopped.

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.
