GH students score well in Michigan Merit Exams

The Grand Haven school district scored above the Ottawa County Intermediate School District averages on its Michigan Merit Exam. The MME is a test that has a combination of the ACT, former Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) test and Work Keys, according to Grand Haven Area Public Schools Assistant Superintendent of Instruction Melinda Brink.

The MME measures the proficiency of its 11th-graders in five categories: reading, writing, math, science and social studies. The results showed that the proficiency for reading was 85 percent — 63 percent for writing, 72 percent for math, 81 percent for science and 92 percent for social studies.

“We’re pleased with our scores,” Brink said. “We went up in nearly all of the areas. ... We exceeded the state’s and ISD averages in each of the categories.”
