Many teacher in this District don't care; it's ...  Read more

I went to Kelly for 6th ,7th and 8th . I go to the high school this year.this school is a very high learning plan and never gives up on the teens.. The teachers love and care for each one..And Mr.Hamden is so sweet..And most think that kids get in fights well they do but not as much as the high school.

I went to Kelly Middle School for my 6th and 7th grade. All the teachers are nice but most of the students are not! But i have to say that Mr.Hamden is a great principal, and was always there when i needed to talk to him

MEAP* Test Scores

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2013
Kelly Middle School
East Detroit 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.
