Our Scorecard measures schools across three categories. Schools receive a final grade based on the three categories, plus any extra credit. Excellent Schools Detroit recommends schools with a C+ grade or better. We also recommend "Fresh Start" schools or new schools that we consider promising. If we do not feel comfortable with the amount of data collected for a school, we label it "No Grade" until we can gather more information.

The following information is entered by a staff member from this school.


We're committed to being a world-class school by creating a stretch culture where students and professional educators are better today than they were yesterday, but not as good as they will be tomorrow, through continuous improvement. -Dr. Cleo Moody, Principal
