Calumet High School Ranks No. 1 For Schools Located In Towns

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

Calumet High School, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, ranked first of all Michigan high school located in towns, and 8th best of more than 500 conventional high schools in the state, according to the Mackinac Center for Public Policy's 2012 High School Report Card, based on Context and Performance scores. 

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

The school's success is due to a combination of "a culture of hard work," growth-based assessments, and a technology-focus with recorded iPad lectures, mining and junior ROTC extra-curriculars.
