The Leona Group congratulates its charter school campuses on their many successes.
Your commitment to educating the whole child is positively impacting the lives of thousands of urban families in Arizona, Florida, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio.
While not everything that counts can be counted, one measure of success is each state’s school report card. Congratulations to the schools which have received high marks and congratulations to Saginaw Preparatory Academy and Academy for Business & Technology elementary for being named among Michigan’s top schools “Beating the Odds” by the Michigan Department of Education.
The Leona Group is proud of all of its schools for the mazing and positive impact they have on the lives of families. The state report cards are one measure of this success. When you look at the data differently, though, you find schools like César Chávez Academy High School
(CCAHS). At first glance you may see that the school is in Phase 4 of Improvement. Dig a little deeper and you will also see:
• For the second straight year, CCAHS is the third ranked academically performing public high school in Detroit, both in top-to-bottom rankings and test scores. The top two schools preceeding CCAHS only accept students based on an application/examination process. CCAHS accepts all students.
• The school’s spring 2011 test scores make Chávez the highest performing charter high school in Detroit.
• Michigan Merit Exam five-year growth rates (2007 – 2011):
Math - 250% | Reading - 48% | Writing - 600%
Science - 84% | Social Studies - 27%
We are constantly and consistently improving throughout The Leona Group family; keep up the great work!
