This has to be the worst school I have ever put my daughter in. My daughter was in the 6th grade this year, though the teachers seem to be very pleasant in person, at parent teacher conference as if they had my daughter's best interest of her education at heart, that was further from the truth. Parents can view their children assignment on parent portal, the only thing is that the parent's only can see what is graded nothing more than that and the teachers do not updated the assignments on the regular bases. Therefore, I tried to contact the teachers through emails and leaving messages and there were no responses. When my daughter got into it with another student, I was told to just bring her back without meeting with the principle to discuss the situation at all. I was called by a teacher three weeks before school had ended to tell me that my daughter was behind in 30 assignments, this is the part that made me so done with this school. If you care about a student you would notify the parents way before the student could be this far behind. The students run the school and the parents do not have a say so until it is too late and then they want the parents to be the fall person.

As a parent of a Carleton student and a Counselor in Warren Consolidated Schools, I couldn't be more pleased with the education and care my child is receiving. The staff hasalways gone above and beyond what I ever expected when it came to the academic and emotional needs of my child. I feel they do an excellent job preparing the students for the academic rigor that's to come in high school and beyond. I recommend Carleton without any hesitation.

Wow! What a positive experience for my children. Everyone is so friendly and accomodating!

Last year it seemed that there were many teachers who did not teach well. There seemed to be some reshuffling this year by pulling qualified teachers from the high schools to shake things up a bit. So I will see if it helps the students learn better.

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.
