2 Parent Reviews for Buchanan School

I agree with the parent review that we have a very caring staff. We offer Spanish language instruction, as well as support for students in their families in all areas, not just academic. Our scores continue to climb as we all work hard together as a team!

MEAP* Test Scores

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2013
Buchanan School
Grand Rapids 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.
