New report highlights the best and worst of Detroit’s schools


A new report by Excellent Schools Detroit is highlighting the best and worst Detroit’s schools.
The report is a report card of sorts about almost every school in the city. It ranks the schools from best to worst based on MEAP test results for elementary and middle schools and ACT results for high schools.
The report is meant to be used as a guide for parents who want to find the best school for their children. The authors recommend parents examine the data on their child’s current schools and then look at the data from other schools that they could attend.
Among the best elementary schools in Detroit are the private Cornerstone School – Nevada Primary and Martin Luther King Jr. Education Center Academy, a charter school. Also included are the Bates Academy and Chrysler, both of which have special admissions requirements.
