North Huron High School Ranked No. 1 Traditional School In Michigan

Part of a series on schools scoring highly on the Mackinac Center's 'Context and Performance' report card

In the Mackinac Center for Public Policy's 2012 High School Report Card, based on Context and Performance scores (CAP), the top conventional high school was North Huron High School in Kinde, Mich.

The report card measures schools on more of an "apples-to-apples" level by looking at student achievement while taking into account family income level. Socioeconomic status is universally held to be an important factor in student achievement.

Interviews with Kinde teachers and administrators show a school designed to provide individual support for student's career goals early on, as well as providing a crucial educational role throughout the community.

To see how schools in your area measured, see the CAP report cards here: "Michigan School Databases."
