My family has attended Walker for a long time now and they always complain about how they want to switch. They tell me about how the school lunch stinks.

Both of my children attend WCA. It is by far the best elementary school in the area! We would know, we have tried at least five different GRPS schools while waiting to get in to WCA. The best that tests more often and keeps parents in the loop. If your looking for your child to succeed beyond 8th ...  Read more

Test Year: 2013

Walker Charter Academy
* 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.
