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.


Thirkell is a true neighborhood school that exemplifies excellence. Were one of the few neighborhood schools left, and every year we prove that rigorous academics, a commitment to students, parents and staff CAN happen without selecting which students you serve. Were top in the state and thats not by chance. We work hard to educate every child and create an environment where all of their needs whether through us or a community partnership can be met without question... -Principal Dr. Clara Smith
