This school is the absolute best. I love it. Everybody is friendly; the teachers, the students, the whole staff. The atmosphere is very peaceful. It's just plain out the best.

I believe that the academic programs are very good for our children, the staff is great. Coaches for the boys wrestling team are awesome, as well as the other coaches. The level of parent participation is better than I have seen in years. The after school tutoring program is a great thing that has been going on for 2 yrs that I am aware of. The office personal is very helpful anytime that I go into the office and have any questions or need to get ahold of my child. They take the time to do whatever needs to be done to help the parents.The safety is a very good thing and very appropriate disciplinary actions are taken when necessary.

Mason County Central Middle School is a wonderful school to send my children to. They have a great bunch of teachers that will give my boys the extra hand that they sometimes need. The Office Staff is very easy to talk to when you have an issue regarding your child. My children love it there! Oh, and I love the Monday Morning Assembly where they have the word of the week. I ask my boys, 'Whats the new word this week and what does it mean?'

Mason County Central Middle School is very much a family. Teachers really care about their students. The staff goes above and beyond to provide a high quality education for all children. Many services and activity are available before and after school for students to feel a part. Mason County Central Middle School is a great place to send your children!

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.
