Merritt Academy 2017-2018 M-Step Results

Below you will find M-Step results from last spring and how Merritt Academy performed compared to the rest of the charter and public schools in the state.  The results of the tests were made public last week.  The highlight of looking at this academic data is that WE BEAT THE STATE AVERAGE IN EVERY CATEGORY!!!!  In most instances we scored 20-30 points higher than the state average!   An updated chart comparing us to the surrounding school districts will be released once that data is made available to us.

We are truly accomplishing some unbelievable things at Merritt.  We are one of the top performing  schools in the county and one of the top charter schools in the whole State of Michigan!!!!!  Just look at the results and see for yourself!!!

 

The students will once again be taking the M-Step test this Spring.  We will look at the data provided and work on addressing areas of weakness throughout the school year. 

Individual student reports will be sent out when we receive them in the next couple of weeks.  If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the school to make an appointment with administration.  I am truly proud of everyone for their efforts! We will continue to strive for excellence and we thank you for the support our parents give us!  Remember we are all in this togetherJ
