I LOVED this school sooooo much! I wish I could go back! But I grew up, I am now a 7th grader at East, and can honestly say, I love this school! My teachers were wonderful, the principle is nice and funny! There was a mean teacher, but she only lasted a year before being fired. My 4th grade teacher was ...  Read more

This is our second year with children at Lanigan. I really don't have anything to complain about. There is no perfect school so of course there have been small things but nothing that couldn't be solved by reasonable communication with a teacher or staff member. My kids teachers are encouraging and push ...  Read more

I attended this school from kindergarten to the fifth grade, and the experiences made it difficult enjoy school or the learning process even after I left. My second grade teacher would flip over kids' desks if they were untidy and yelled at me several times for using too many tissues when she made me ...  Read more

I am satisfied with the academics and building maintenance. The running club is a great activity and is well organized.

While this school has several award winning teachers, it also has a 2nd teacher who is out of her mond and protected by the union. Test scores tend to be lower here due to local demographics. PTA is excellent along with the principal. If you are in invovled parent, you child can thrive here.

As a working parent, I wish there was more consideration of my schedule. At times, I found that extremely important events or meeting (non PTSA) were scheduled during day hours. In general, a good school but needs a more challenging curriculum.

I took my daughter out of this school because she was not being challanged enough. She was repeating subjects she learned in a lower level. She became bored and began to act out. My husband and I put her in a charter school where she is being challanged above her grade level. This school is good for ...  Read more

I have visited this school and think it is rather creepy. The principal is narcissistic and some of the teachers also have a similar attitude. I did not feel welcomed at this school. Moreover, test scores are not so great. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

My son is a 5th grader at Lanigan he has had great teacher and really enjoys school. The worst I can say about this school is that I am going to miss all the great kids and staff when my son moves on next year. The best school in FPS!

Test Year: 2013
J.a. Lanigan Elementary School
Farmington Public 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.
