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.
