Too many fun activities to count- hundreds of students PK-12 and their families participated- robots, cars, parachutes, weights, mass, trajectory, rockets….. learning and having fun. STEM students displayed projects, awards and talked with students and parents. Coding instruction provided. Partnerships with Fordson students and UM and other Dearborn teachers. Great leadership by Science Enrichment teacher Kathleen McCormick and the HFES team.
Three of our high schools have been rated as State Champs for their preparation of students for college readiness/success. Bridge Magazine is recognizing 54 schools across the State. All three of our schools rated in the top percentile across the state in their respective categories.
Bridge also recognized Fordson last year as one of the top performing schools in the country that are beating the odds.
