Michigan Department of Education releases public school rankings

The Michigan Department of Education released its annual Top-to-Bottom Ranking and School Accountability Scorecards today. The ratings reflect the overall performance of public schools across the state.

More than 1,000 public schools in the state met their goals in every graded category, such as proficiency, attendance, and graduation. In addition, more than one third of 2013’s lowest performing schools were able to improve enough to remove themselves from the Priority List. Seventeen schools were able to move up to the Reward List, which contains the highest performing schools in the state.

The Upper Peninsula’s schools received scores spanning the spectrum. Marquette Senior High School came in the highest in the 85th percentile, while Mid-Peninsula School came in at the lowest end in the 17th percentile.
