This is my second year at Cromie. I have a child in 5th grade and last year I had children in 4th and 5th grade. I have to say that compared with the other schools that we have be a part of this one is the best. The princle Mr. Konal is very involved and supportive. He is not afraid to discipline poor behavior and he is quick to praise positive behavior. Most of the teachers are great and the PTO is very involved and has wonderful programs for the kids. I am sorry that my son will be leaving at the end of the year to move on to middle school.

I agree with the other parents who gave reviews for this school. I have 2 sons currently attending Cromie and the experience so far has been very wonderful. The principle, teachers, staff have are all very involved with the kids and parents. They always encourage the kids to do their best and not push them too much. Mr. Konal is a great principle. He always has encouraging words and knows how to handle a tough situation. I give Cromie Elementary, the Cougars a two thumbs up. I would recommend everybody who has young kids to attend Cromie!

What a wonderful school! The staff and principal are great, they are super with the kids. The PTC is great too, they are very involved in providing exciting activities for the children. I am very lucky that my children are going to such a educational and fun school.

Cromie is a wonderful starting point for your child's education. We could not have been happier with the entire Cromie experience. My only complaint is that they don't have six grade. I thought the kids could use as many years there as possible. There is not enough space for all the good things there are to say about Cromie!

Our family has gained a lot with our children's experiences through Cromie Elementary. This upcoming year I will only have one child left at Cromie (third grade). I am active on the PTC-for the most part, parent help is generally pretty active. This is one of the factors I believe is what makes Cromie what it is. Our parents really care and step up to help the staff and childrens needs. We have many programs in which anyone can be involved. Mr. Konal (Principal) is a wonderful leader and support person for the children, staff and parents.

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.
