Detroit Public Schools Community School District Reviews
I would say that Detroit students are on the rise because of the Detroit Public Schools Community District. Our superintendent, Dr. Vitti and our school board allows students of our district to voice our concerns and make sure we are heard. I attend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Senior High School where our principal allows students like myself to shadow her. She allows our school to be student-lead. She also built a culture that is family-orientated. The students and faculty builds close bonds throughout the 4 years there. I would say, that joining the King family is the best decision I made!
I've been with the school district ever since Pre-K and cant imagine myself anywhere else. Iv'e met so many people of all different kinds of backgrounds and great teachers who have inspire me to this day. The teachers and faculty go out of their way to help those in need no matter what and ensure that the students are prepared for the future. Safety in the DPSCSD should be the least of ones concern, there is always a safe space for every student of all background. Overall, my 11 year experience with DPSCSD has been excellent and I'd recommend (and highly encourage) parents to enroll their kids in such extraordinarily devoted school district!
Detroit Public Schools offer many programs and incentives to become college ready. They provide many opportunities for students to go out of their way and explore the things the academic world has to offer them, so they prepare their students very well to be college ready with both their programs, work and academics. They could however get better in their academic curriculum and it is continuously changing, so keeping a steady curriculum could help both the teachers and students stay focused.
