Academically the school is great, concerns are that issues brought up by students and parents are not addressed but seem to always get dismissed.

My autistic son is going in 8th grade this year, and his brother in 6th. I've found this school to be top of the line for help, resources, and I love the SNAP program that teach mainstream kids to understand about special needs kids. Everyone gets a win-win from this type of environment.

My last one has just finished here. Good experiences. If I had filled this survey out 7 months ago, it would have been different. They have gotten a new VP, Mrs. Rendi who seemed to change the mood of the entire school. She was able to get the principal to loosen up some. Kids love her. Too bad ...  Read more

I came from W. Bloomfield to Walled Lake. They made transition smooth by finding out what the child likes, what he needs for support, and what courses he needed to fill for that grade. So from 6th and 7th grade (this year) I only have high praise. Bob B from AI works wonders with special needs children ...  Read more

I can't believe that there were negative comments associated with this school. My son just completed 7th grade and has grown leaps and bounds academically. There are those teachers better than others, but overall I have no complaints. The english curriculum( especially Mrs Graham) at this school is remarkable; ...  Read more

My children have attended Walnut Creek, and did exceptionally well here. The staff and administration go overboard to keep parents informed of student progress. The vocal music program at Walnut Creek is a joy to have my children in.

I had a student sail through this school, not because she has high academic quality, just middle of the road. She was a rule follower and had anxiety levels and teachers that were able to achieve success. I am sure there are many good teachers in the building but there is something wrong at this school. ...  Read more

The benchmark system is not acceptable. It's geared for the meaps and not the students learning level. The school dosen't care about the children only about the benchmark scores and meap scores. They need to teach test taking and studying techniques not the gestapo style of no going to your locker ...  Read more

Overall the school is a nice school. Most of the teachers appear to be supportive and caring to the students. The principal needs to be aware that subtle bullying does occur in her school. She also needs to worry less about the physical appearance of her school and more about the well being of all ...  Read more

MEAP* Test Scores

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2013
Walnut Creek Middle School
Walled Lake Consolidated 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.
