K-12 Education

Detroit’s K-12 landscape has, since the 1990s, gone from a traditional one district system to one featuring many schools within many systems. To help connect parents, schools, and policymakers to good information, Excellent Schools Detroit works with all 200 schools in Detroit (whether charter, traditional, an EAA school or an independent or parochial school), to ensure all systems are working in alignment and toward improvement.

Our K-12 work focuses on three activities: organize, analyze and share data to support parents, educators and policymakers (Data and Policy); invest into high potential or proven ideas that align with our mission (People); and bring people together who can work collectively on shared outcomes (Collective Impact).
