Report: Area High Schools Among Best, and Worst in National Survey

Frankenmuth High School
Frankenmuth High School

First the good news. Frankenmuth High School 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.

Frankenmuth placed third, bested by International Academy in Bloomfield Hills, and City Middle/High School in Grand Rapids. 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 21,000 public high schools were evaluated across the United States, and Frankenmuth ranked #276 nationally. International Academy in Bloomfield Hills is #18.

Now the bad news. Of the 826 Michigan high schools evaluated, Flint’s Zimmerman Center ranked last. Students achieved only 7% proficiency on state exit exams in math, and 31% in reading. Both scores are well below average.

Grand Blanc High School was ranked #36 in the state and 1,273 nationally, while Davison High School is #64 in Michigan and 2,100 nationally.
