My husband and I joke all the time that this school is too beautiful to be an elementary. Not only is it a LEED certified school with more windows than you can imagine, it also has an excellent group of caring teachers. Our daughter could not be in a better learning environment!

MEAP* Test Scores

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2013
Knapp Forest Elementary School
Forest Hills 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.
