Three Rivers, Mendon, Nottawa and Centreville school districts had the greatest number of proficient third-through eighth-grade students in the county on the reading portion of the Michigan Educational Assessment Program.
All four finished above the state average in the reading category, according to MEAP results released by the state Monday.
Meanwhile, students in Nottawa and Sturgis scored the highest number of proficient math scores in the county on the state-standardized text taken by third- through eighth-grade students last October.
They were the only two districts in the county to finish above the state average in the math component.
At 57.1 percent, Burr Oak’s third- through eighth-grade students had the lowest number of proficient students in reading in St. Joseph County, while Mendon, at 28.5 percent, recorded the lowest number of proficient students in math among the county’s nine school districts.
