A high-achieving public high school
The Mackinac Center recently released its first ever Elementary and Middle School Context and Performance Report Card. It not only takes into account the test scores of students, but also factors in socioeconomic status, making the ranking a true determinant of how a school is doing with the resources it has. You can see how the school in your area scored by going to the searchable database here.
In the summer of 2012, the Mackinac Center rated public high schools using the same methodology.
One of the schools was Calumet High School in the Upper Peninsula.
