I believe the teachers here are one in a million. They truly care about the students, and it shows in any communication I have had. The staff really makes everyone feel important, and it has encouraged me to be more involved with the school, PTA, field trips, etc.

Palmer is an excellent school with an extremely dedicated staff! My 6 years as a student there prepared me well for the next steps.

MEAP* Test Scores

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2013
Palmer 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.
