7 Parent Reviews for John Monteith Elementary School

Monteith is fantastic! We moved to the area from a very highly ranked school in California and couldn't be happier with the principal, teachers, staff, and fellow students/parents. We found a welcoming atmosphere with a strong focus on individualized learning for our kids in K, 3rd, and 5th. Highly ...  Read more

One of the greatest things about Monteith is that even though it's a big school, it still has a warm, neighborhood feel to it. Everyone from the principal on down is friendly and welcoming. Teachers take the time to differentiate between students so that everyone is challenged in the classroom. I'm ...  Read more

I agree, Monteith is an incredible school with dedicated professionals. We have been lucky with fine teachers, and an incredible office staff.

Monteith is a wonderful school, it doesn't get much better than this. Mr. Howell is the best principal to date. The staff and students are happy... where else is that going on?

I've been a Monteith mom for three years and have two daughters there. It's a really great school. I volunteer a lot but unlike the reviewer before me, I don't come close to 20 hours a week and don't know any parent who does. Also, as a 'lunch mom' I can tell you that it's not up to us on whether the ...  Read more

My child-former student who attended for five years with previous principal. Monteith-most students of any elementary in GPSS. Many parents, i.e. mothers, volunteered more than 20 hrs/week. If you can't be that involved you may not perceive the school as 'user friendly', i.e. not inclusive of new or ...  Read more

MEAP* Test Scores

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2013
John Monteith Elementary School
Grosse Pointe 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.
