Every year, Excellent Schools Detroit gathers a group of parents, experts and teachers to grade Detroit's schools. ESD uses more than test scores, also looking at how much students learn in a year and what the school atmosphere is like.

Know, then enroll

Get in touch with ESD's recommended schools, learn more about them, and find a good fit for your child. It's best to enroll in a new school as soon as possible before it fills up.

Excellent Schools Detroit recommends these schools because of their:

  • Welcoming Environment
  • Caring Teachers and Staff
  • Strong Academics
  • Involved Families
  • Community Partnerships
  • After-school and Extracurricular Activities

You may see schools marked with a "K2K." It stands for "Kick-off to Kindergarten," an ESD campaign to enroll kindergarteners at high-quality schools and spread the word about kindergarten readiness.
