I am very sad to see Schofield closing. It was my first experience as a parent and my sons first as a student. We couldn't have been happier with the school, the teachers, especially Mrs. Provo. Mrs. Dryer is an excellent leader and I was grateful to have had her here this year. Thank you staff and volunteers of Schofield for making this last year such a memorable year for the kids!!!

I love this school .Ok this is whats on my mind today. I am a Warren MI Parent of a two students who go to Scholfield Elementary. I am very mad and concerned about other students' parents who are not following street laws in front of the school. On Warner it states right in front of the school going both ways No Parking, Stopping or Standing. Answer me this why are parents putting their children at risk and allowing them to get out of their parents parked against the law vechiles and walk right in fron of on coming cars. These irrogrant parents need to take a few minutes and park their cars in the school parking lot, park and then let their kids out safely. I am following the law these parents who are lazy need to follow the street law as well .

I have 2 children who attend there. This is a great school! Especially considering some of the rough kids they have to deal with. Only so much can be done @ school. It is the parents job to control their children & when they can't how is the staff expected to. They aren't babysitters. They are TEACHERS, there to educate WILLING participants!!!

My children love this school. I am very happy with the teachers and staff. They offer great programs for the students to participate in and the hallyways are always filled with their artwork. Very clean. I'm proud to say my children attend that school.

This principal tends to send problematic students home instead of dealing with the real issues. The teachers do not try hard enough to resolve problems.

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.
