Detroit Free Press Recognizes Honey Creek

The Detroit Free Press recognized Honey Creek as an innovative charter school with excellent academic outcomes. In June 2014, the Free Press published the results of an exhaustive investigation of charter schools in Michigan. The Free Press found many things to criticize about other charter schools, but singled out Honey Creek Community School as an example of how to do things right saying in part, “Honey Creek, the first charter school in Washtenaw County and among the first to open in Michigan, fits what some early visionaries wanted: a place where teachers would develop different approaches to education. …The students perform well academically. The school is ranked at the 85th percentile on the Michigan Department of Education’s top-to-bottom listing of all schools in the state, and students score well above their peers statewide in every subject on the Michigan Educational Assessment Program exam.”
