Our daughter was having trouble adjusting to regular high school life due to all of the distractions there. We chose Roberto Clemente because we had heard great things about it and we want our daughter to succeed! The staff is awesome there and I would recommend sending your child there for a great education and a great family atmosphere!

Our family decided to send our daughter to Roberto Clemente rather than the comprehensive high school. Roberto Clemente offered a more structured environment resulting in more accountabilIty from the students. The location of Roberto was chosen so that it would not encourage students to walk off campus, skip class and hopping a bus to "who knows where". It also a school of approximately 80 students with a ratio of 8:1. I would say that this program is for the student who needs a little more discipline. The program involves consistent parent involvement. If there are any issues that need addressing concerning your child, the parents are called immediately. My daughter has been on the honor roll and recently finished with a 4.0. She has been accepted to attend WTMC at the Washtenaw Community College to finish her last 2 years of high school while earning college credit by the time she graduates high school. Dr. Ben Edmondson runs a tight ship! The program works for students who need a little more structure and discipline. Roberto Clemente offers this. If you are looking for a smaller environment with less distractions, I encourage you to visit Roberto Clemente. I am so thankful

This school is the best; starting from the principal to the office staff. My daughter came in with a very nasty attitude, and they dealt with her with so much love until she wanted to do better without anybody having to force her. I wish that my older children had of attended here maybe they would have went on to college. But we were in Detroit at the time, so what can I say.

If Joe Dulin is running this school your children no matter how troubled or unable to learn will learn to be responsible, caring and earn life skills that carry them above the crowd for the rest of their life.

It,s a school that save students and allowes them to create skills for life. School has grown from a old run down building to a real school. Molding young trouble children to young adults.

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.
