Academics & Activities

Specialized Program

Single Gender School


In Kindergarten through 8th grade, District students' learning experiences push them to think critically and have meaningful experiences with content or order to build knowledge for success within and across grade levels. Schools use the EL Education curriculum for English Language Arts/Literacy, Eureka Math for Mathematics, hands-on project-based learning and labs for Science, and various primary source texts and resources in Social Studies that best match the content and subjects taught in each grade. High School students' coursework is based on a rigorous core curriculum of required courses in the main content areas of English Language Arts (4 credits), Mathematics (4 credits), Science (3 credits), and Social Studies (3 credits) as well as Physical Education and Health (1 credit), World Languages (2 credits), Visual, Performing, and Applied Arts (1 credit), and an out-of-class learning experience. In addition, students have access to a broad range of electives from Business Law to Digital Music and Editing, advanced coursework like AP Calculus AB and Chemistry, as well as career and technical education programs and opportunities to take college-level courses for college credit. Annually, the District publishes a course catalog of Board approved courses.

School Safety Culture

Detroit Public Schools Community District is the only school District in the state with a fully functioning police department. In addition, to external patrols and security measures, the District has taken a whole child approach to student safety with a student code of conduct inclusive of restorative practices, a dean of culture, attendance agent and a school culture facilitator in each school and a districtwide approach to character development through our Expect Respect initiative. The Police Department's focus is based on a four-tiered strategy of crime prevention, intervention, student reintegration into the learning environment, and as a last option enforcement. The whole child commitment is supported by the methodologies of trauma informed practices.
