To determine Academic City Champions for the 2010-11 school year, Bridge Magazine collected and analyzed data for each campus in the Detroit Public Schools. All were judged by academic results relevant to their grade levels (testing at the fourth and eighth grades, ACT results and high school graduation rates for high-school grades). The results of the Detroit database can be found in a searchable format below the list of winners.

 The champions

Renaissance High School (Graduation Rate, College Readiness)

Enrollment: 1,175

Percentage of free lunch: 40 percent

Key to victory: “We offer rigorous courses and a college-prep, liberal arts curriculum,” said Principal Anita Williams.

Bates Academy (8th Grade Science, 8th Grade Math, 4th Grade Writing)

Enrollment: 857.

Percentage of free lunch: 49 percent

Key to success: “Our program attracts the best and brightest students in the Detroit metropolitan area, and they are given every opportunity to grow. We are developing a ‘stretch culture’ that remains focused upon continuous growth. This expectation not only applies to the students, but to the adult professional learning community, as well,” said Principal Reginald Kirkland.

Davison Elementary-Middle School (4th Grade Reading, 4th Grade Math)

Enrollment: 700

Percentage of free lunch: 93 percent

Key to victory: “We have some wonderful programs here. We have an outstanding staff. You can have tons of outstanding programs in the school but if you do not have the right individuals to implement the programs you are not going to be successful. I take pride in making sure I have the highest quality staff available, a staff that is willing to go above and beyond,” said Principal Dianne Holland.

Ludington Magnet Middle School (8th Grade Reading)

Enrollment: 537

Percentage of free lunch: 63 percent

Key to victory: “As a school of choice, Ludington is committed to elevating student achievement to recognized national standards. Our teachers come early and stay late to work with students and help them out,” said Principal Alora Comer-Maxwell. “The testimony to that is (from) high school students who say they’ve received a great foundation to get to the next level.”
