LMC has been a great experience for my daughter. The teachers and staff have nurtured and aided my daughter's somewhat rough integration with other children. They have inspired her learning and strengthened her religious beliefs. I'm sorry to be relocating to another city, however, I think that the self confidence and love for learning, instilled here at LMC will follow her to her new school. I am thankful to the teachers, especially, for instilling a thirst for knowledge that I feel can only lead to better things.

Wonderful environment for my children, with a strong academic curriculum. The teachers and staff are very loving and nurturing and have been very willing to accomodate the special academic needs of my son. The Catholic atmosphere is very strong, with the children learning several older, traditional prayers and attending weekly Mass at the school.

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.
