I love the staff at Peck! They are very good about keeping parents informed about things that happen at school. The secretary is a great lady and always makes me feel like my kids are special, and she seems to know all the kids by name! It is a smaller school, but that creates a small community feel that I love having my kids in.

I love this school and am so proud to have my children attending. I have a 3rd grader who will be going to 4th and my son will be a 1st grader in 2007-08 school year. As a parent who grew up in the center line school system, I am so happy that my children will get to experience this fabulous school. The principal and teachers highly motivate the students and pride themselves in teaching to the best of their ability. They are always there to help when there is a problem and willing to listen to any ideas that you may have. I can't say enough about this school. You will not be sorry having your child(ren) attend may v. Peck. It is an exceptional school and I can't think of a better place to raise my children. I feel truly blessed having my children attend peck. Thank you. Debbie

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.
