Making great progress! I am so happy about the change in principals. That coupled with the new curriculum (daily 5 and cafe) have made a world of difference.

Great school to be a part of. My children love attending Nolwin and the teachers are hands on great. Deabroen prides itself on small class rooms and one on one teaching with the children. A++++++++

With a small student body, Nowlin is like a community unto itself. All the children know eachother, and the parents are very involved. The teachers are kind, caring, and dedicated to making the kids (and parents) feel safe and valued!

MEAP* Test Scores

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2013
Nowlin Elementary School
Dearborn City School District
* 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.
