I like how some of the teachers actually listen and take the time out to understand you. I really love how my college seminar class keeps me up to date on scholarships. Every week a college from Michigan comes to do a presentation. They even do on sites! Where colleges admit us at our school. I wish how the students get treated would change. Here, students are never right, administrators never listen to our side or our issues.

As a current high school student at DEPSA's high school, Early College of Excellence (ECE), I can inform others that DEPSA is a really great school that challenges learners and is sure to prepare your child for college. School uniforms are must and are set to a high expectation. Staff and administration are very kind and supportive to every student, as well as the excellent school counselor. DEPSA has some of the best sports teams and players while our girls and boys basketball team are very active in games throughout the state. There are many ways for not only students, but parents also to stay connected. Whether it is through parent meetings, communication with teachers and staff, or through apps to keep up with grade and homework. DEPSA is great for any student who not only wants to receive a great education, but the right education.
I've been at DEPSA since preschool to 9th grade and it has been an outstanding experience. I was very optimistic of individuals and their personalities and it has been very kind hearted. In particular, I've met peers or staffs that'll assist me with my work anytime without a problem. As a result, I encountered new friends along the way that are very encouraging. Others think of DEPSA as boring and unknown. As years went by my school has been honored because of our good sportsmanship. Like our girls and boys basketball team, the girls won the state championship and then met our Mayor to honor them for winning the great game. Moreover, academically we're ranked one of the top schools in Detroit, Michigan. Teachers serve diverse tactics of a subject whenever someone doesn't understand. Not only, they are patient but still keep track of time when teaching. Overall, Detroit Edison Public School Academy is an amazing school that gets me college ready and improves my talent.
