2 Ann Arbor schools make list of highest-performing charters in Michigan
Two Ann Arbor-area charter schools are among those lauded by Bridge Magazine as academic champs in its statewide analysis of charter school performance.
Bridge grouped schools in two socioeconomic categories (student body at 39 percent or less free lunch and student body at 40 percent or greater free lunch) and then analyzed their performance in eight academic categories. Those included graduation rate, college readiness and grade-level proficiency in math, reading and writing on the MEAP. The highest-performing schools in each category made the list.
