9 Parent Reviews for Bach Elementary School

What a great school! We moved our child to Bach from a local private school and we couldn't be happier with the Bach teachers & administrators (and students and parents). There is a great community spirit at Bach, and the classroom teacher has worked hard to generate an atmosphere of kindness, respect ...  Read more

We've been at Bach for 6 years and couldn't be happier. My wife, children and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place. The faculty is first rate, the facility is very good, and the community outstanding. Parents are extremely committed. We'll be heartbroken when our kids graduate.

School has everything you want/need. We've had kids in this school going on ten years now. BACH (pronounced 'baaaa', not like composer Bach) is one of the oldest elementry schools in A2. Very cool school if you're interested in character over the bells-and-whistles'. Teachers for the most part ...  Read more

We love this school. The teachers are first rate, the curriculum is tough and challenging and the parents are eager to be involved.

I have two children who have gone through Bach School. Our experience has been wonderful. The teachers, with very few exceptions. are responsive to the many different needs/styles of the students. The teachers work with the curriculum to make it engaging. My kids have always marched to a different ...  Read more

My son went to K, first and second grades at Bach. Although I really felt at home with the community of other parents, some of the teachers were really poor. They ranged from just uninspiring to cold and affect-less. Unfortunately, the principal was defensive about the teachers and was not receptive ...  Read more

This school has been a big disappointment. Diversity in ethnicity doesn't translate into appreciating diversity for students of differing levels of academic achievement. Because it's an ESL school, much of the focus is on meeting No Child and raising MEAP scores. Children who already excel are expected ...  Read more

My child has attended Bach Elementary for 5 years. We have had an outstanding experience with the school, it's staff, and administration. The Bach community is very welcoming and parent/child friendly. Bach is an ESL magnet school, so another great feature of the school is its diversity which has ...  Read more

My child attended Bach School for two years. We found it to be a place without much respect for children and parents. Our dealings with the principal were disturbing, at best. It never occured to me that adults could be bullies, but at Bach many are, and that mindset comes through in its students' interactions. ...  Read more

MEAP* Test Scores

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2013
Bach Elementary School
Ann Arbor Public Schools
* In 2012-2013 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. 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. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
