Royal Oak students scored above state and county averages on Michigan’s new test that has replaced the MEAP in schools statewide.
Royal Oak Schools officials made the announcement Thursday after the state Department of Education released results of the new Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress (M-STEP) test.
Students across the state took the test in the spring of this year to measure proficiency in English, math, science and social studies.
“Royal Oak high school students had the fourth-highest scores in Oakland County,” said Sarah Olson, director of teaching and learning for the Royal Oak school district.
