I love the teachers they have great staff they offer swimming after school programs and interact with the children

Posted by a parent on 10/13/14

This school was amazing years back. Now, it's one of the worst schools around. The teachers were amazing, and to this day, they still are. What's wrong with the school is that the students have a behavior issue and tend to disrupt the class. Many students get in trouble and are suspended daily. The school ...  Read more

I disagree with the comment before me. When he/she said that the kids run around the school/hallways, my case is what do you expect. It's a school with children. And if you are getting "mobbed" then move out the way. There kids . And what do you mean when he/she says that the kids were walking to their ...  Read more

Reputation aside, I dislike that the SERIOUS lack of structure for the children. Some staff are beautiful with the students but NOT all. Still the potential IS there. Parental involvement is seemingly good. PTA meetings always have big turnouts. However, I've noticed that boy students are suspended at ...  Read more

My son went to Owens Academy which Burton took over this year. I kept my son in the school because of all the good reviews and test scores, but I was VERY unhappy with our experience. It didn't matter what time of day I went to my son's classroom, his teacher was always at her desk either on her cell ...  Read more

This school year at Burton International has been challenging. When one considers that we have had a merging of three schools into one educational concept, the success of the venture is yet to be determined. There have been many strides towards balancing the educational levels of all of the students. ...  Read more

This is an excellent school with a dedicated principle and staff. My son has attended since kindergarten. My only complaint is not properly assessing a teacher's ability to work with children with different learning styles and focus, and be placed with the appropriate grade level. Teaching is a challenging ...  Read more

MEAP* Test Scores

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2013
Burton International School
Detroit 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.
