My Son Dandre Murff attends your school.. just would like to have updates on him. Thanks Crystal Rose

A LOT of bullying at this school. My sons came home with bruises and lumps on their head. The principal refused to acknowledge there was a problem. The secretaries in the office were always crabby and rude. The teachers were qualified but there seemed to be a lack of communication.

Test Year: 2013
Justus Gage Elementary School
Dowagiac Union 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.
