THE worst school you can send your kid school. Bad neighborhood, plus teachers don't care about teaching. Everybody judges on how you look and wear. They really spread rumors fast! Everybody has their own little clique don't expect that they will have friends!!! I know this because i've attended at this school! Don't be fooled! They're not as welcoming as they say

Im in the Band there and we are doing so well now, and if it wasn't for the great people who work at lee and on the board we would not be able to be where we are now. Thank alot guys.

Lee is a vary diverse school with many hispanic students. New leadership in the Administration and Principal's office. They seem to really care about children at Lee. There is a wide varity of teaching experiences and styles at Lee. It is a small school that can take care of 'problems' in a flash. Just like any other school they do have their problems but they are heading in a very positive direction. Look out for Lee!

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.
