We love this school! Since we come from a foreign country I was very worried on how my children would adjust to the new school. After a rough start last year I can only say nice things about this school. The principal is amazing and has a wonderful way on solving problems. My daughters teacher last year was amazing, Mrs. Haugh we miss you this year. Mr. Walega you a are so awsome, the way you tickle the best out of your students is a true gift. I am pleased to have you as my son s 6th grade teacher. And a special thank to the outstanding work from the Special Education Team.

Good school. Good teachers. Much better principal than the years past. Need to somethingbetter than have all the activities and tons of recess the kids have. Way too many recesses! Find something better to do and teach them during this time. Talking about the younger kids - don't know aboiut the older ones...yet.

Mrs. McCune and Mrs. Joss are the most AMAZING kindergarten team-I just heard they are both leaving. So disappointed, we were hoping to have one of them. They have the patience of saints, and are firm but fair. Those kids are reading and writing like no other Kindergarten program I've seen! We always lose the good ones!

My son went to this school for two years and it was awful for him and us. They need a new principal among other things.

Our children have recieved an excellent education at Schuchard so far. We have had awesome teachers that have challenged and encouraged our kids. Ms. Lee is the art teacher - she is very creative! The administration can be challenging at times. The parents are involved to a certain extent - it seems the same parents are the ones that offer to help at school sponsored /parent organized functions. Because of such a diverse cultural climate, many parents get involved due to language/cultural barriers. Overall, I'd give Schuchard an A-.

Overall a very good school. Miss Flanigan is outstanding. However the Principal leadership is severely lacking.

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.
