Michigan Department of Education Academic Standards

Michigan's academic standards outline learning expectations for Michigan’s students and guide local curriculum development. They are used as a framework by schools for curriculum development with the curriculum itself prescribing instructional resources, methods, progressions, and additional knowledge valued by the local community. These standards provide a platform for state assessments, which are used to measure how well schools are providing opportunities for all students to learn the content outlined by the standards. Kenowa Hills want to make sure every student graduates college and career ready.

Michigan College and Career Ready standards define graduates who are expected to:

  • use technology and tools strategically in learning and communication.
  • use argument and reasoning to do research, construct arguments, and critique the reasoning of others.
  • communicate and collaborate effectively with a variety of audiences.
  • solve problems, construct explanations and design solutions.

EDUCATION
REDEFINED

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.
