My daughter attended Redner for first and second grade. She had two wonderful teachers who worked tirelessly to provide students with an excellent education. Despite the low socio-economic status of many of students the school had a positive vibe and my daughter never talked about negative behavior or other getting picked on. With regret, we will be leaving the district for another public school. Closing Redner made this move and the lack of regard for all the populations of the district convinced us this was the best choice.

Redner is a wonderful school full of caring teachers and administration. I specifically chose this school out of all the elementary schools because of this and the wonderful diversity. It is being closed at the end of the year for another program and 505 children are being shuffled around the district. I, like many parents are moving our children out of the district as the school board here shows little regard for the children or parents.

Teachers are rude! If your child isnt perfect then they classify them as a problem child. Like any child my son talks alot....well in there eyes he is a problem. we hate this school cannot wait until we move out of the school district. They are all about the enrollment and money it brings!!!

I have 3 children at Redner. The teachers are wonderful and I cannot say enough good things about Mr Northrop, the principal. I feel my children are getting a top notch education at Redner.

My son has been in Lincoln for 3 years, they have been wonderful. He requires alot of help and one on one attention, Lincoln and its staff have been great! We are now moving out of the district. I am having a hard time finding another school quite like Lincoln.

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.
