Frankenmuth High School

Frankenmuth High School has once again landed a spot in the top 10 best high schools in Michigan, according to data compiled by US News and World Report. The publication, along with the American Institute for Research (AIR), released its findings on Monday. (4/21)

Frankenmuth placed fourth, topped this year by International Academy in Bloomfield Hills, Excel Charter Academy in Grand River, and Troy High School. (Frankenmuth was ranked at #3 last year.) The rankings were based on state proficiency tests, schools’ ability to serve their entire student populations and ability to prepare students for college. A detailed explanation of the methodology used is available here.

More than 19,000 public high schools were evaluated across the United States. Frankenmuth ranked #288 nationally, earning a gold medal. Schools are awarded gold, silver, or bronze medals based on how well students are prepared for college, and state assessment exams.

Grand Blanc High School and Davison School also make the publication’s honor roll, earning silver and bronze medals respectively.

Flint’s Zimmerman Center ranked last among Michigan schools for the second year in a row. 100% of the students are considered not proficient at math or reading, according to the report.
