Academics & Activities

Curriculum

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.

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.
