I am so thankful for the positive parent and student reviews! I enjoy working with all of the students and staff at TITAN. We do our best to give our students a "second chance" to be successful. We could not do this with out our students taking the risk to try again despite the many road blocks they face. Ms. Julia

I got sent to Titan thinking I was gonna get stabbed. But then I came to realize that it's not that bad...at all. The school I came from (Truman) was worse than Titan. The teachers are alright. Ms. Julia and Ms. Rhonda are so caring and understanding. People are nice at Titan, you just can't listen to people, because they will try their hardest to stir up some drama. It really gives people the chance to catch up on credits. Titan is a good school, and I'm actually thankful for it.

This school is an alternative school for problems teens. The staff is always looking for ways to help and improve the quality of education for the students. The staff thinks 'out side the box' which is wonderful for these problem teens. Great job Titian!

I'm a senior at titan right now, i'm trying to get out and go to a real high school for my last trimester. titan is straight up garbage, don't let your kids go there, teachers don't seem to care and put effort into helping your kids out, ms mary, mr b, ms rhonda, and julia are nice as can be, they finally got us a hoopin team. but its still a dumb school, lowest test scores.

this school help me get a diploma when i was in a hard time in my life the only reason i did not give it a 5 star its that it did not have any counselors at the time to help with the many problems i hand at the time


Posted June 29, 2009

I think titan is the best and when you need it you will think so too. Because they offer stuff other schools could not even dare and they believe in there kids .. The princable mr b is awesome and the social worker ms rhonda is great. Mrs mary makes you feel like a friend when you call to check on your child, she don't judge your children either............ Titan rocks

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.
