Valleywood is among the best of the best. How it is only rated a 5 out of 10 is beyond me. I did my student teaching here, and was able to see things from a student point of view, as well as a behind-the-scenes point of view. I have to say I've never been more impressed with a school system. The staff ...  Read more

MEAP* Test Scores

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2013
Valleywood Middle School
Kentwood 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.
