This school is the best in Warren (i transferred from CLPS and this is way better), but with some minor changes this could be a MUCH better school. Pros: Facilities, safety, conduct enforcement, cirriculum, activities. Cons: Dont enforce dress code. Girls wear very revealing clothing. Teachers take off too many school days for meetings and ignore kids during class to sit on their laptops. Next year they are dropping AP US History and Mandarin 4 boo!

I feel that the teachers needd to use the internet Blackboard more, so that us, parents can compare the students agenda with the Blackboard agenda.

This school district served me well. What really helped was the involvement and presence of disabled children in the special education department. Just because of befriending them in high school, I am now able to accept them socially in the real world, and know that they are just like me, only with some physical (and sometimes mental) deficiencies. WWT is (I believe) the only school in Macomb county to accommodate special education. 1999 Graduate, Mark

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 2013-2014 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.
