A public STEM Academy sounds like an amazing opportunity, but this school is no better than any other low-rent area school. The food is so bad most days my child would rather go hungry. They get food from the lowest bidder and most of it goes in the garbage. They do not maintain the property outside ...  Read more

This is one of the strongest elementary schools you will ever find. Adams teaches children to be critical thinkers, and has an excellent staff, who give every single kid the opportunity to succeed academically. I feel truly lucky that my kids attend Adams STEM.

My two shy, smart, kids were completely out of place in A2 schools with the rude, competitive kids of rude, ...  Read more

MEAP* Test Scores

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2013
Adams Stem Academy
School District Of Ypsilanti
* 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.
