Report ranks top 25 school districts in Michigan in 2019

A new report ranks Michigan's best school districts in 2019.

BackgroundChecks.org used various data points to rank the state's best school districts, including:

  • Number of students (K-12)
  • Graduation rate
  • Teacher quality
  • Student-to-teacher ratio
  • Test results
  • Proficiency levels in reading and math

"While there is a lot of progress to be made in Michigan’s public school system, with its standing among other Midwest states dropping in the past couple decades, it’s not all bad: there are plenty of school districts in the Great Lakes State where things are going well," the report states.
