LANSING, Mich. — Williamston High School has been recognized as the highest-ranked Mid-Michigan high school for the third straight year by the Michigan Department of Education. The State uses an index that evaluates aspects of Michigan schools such as state exam proficiency, student access to art, music, and physical education courses, and graduation rates. The most significant factor is the rate of student academic growth as determined by state tests. Michigan schools are then listed on a 0 to 100 scale. Williamston High School again earned the highest ranking in the region with an overall index score of 98.75. Williamston Middle School was the second-ranked Mid-Michigan middle school with an overall index score of 91.43.
Williamston Superintendent Adam Spina attributed the District’s continued success to the dedication of the faculty and staff as well as the support of the community. “The Williamston Community sets the bar high for their children and our educators continuously rise to meet those expectations. The achievements of our secondary buildings are a reflection of our entire school system, beginning with our preschool program,” Spina noted.
Spina stated that Williamston’s top ranking over the last several years has had a positive impact on the District’s enrollment. “Parents are paying attention to how schools perform,” he said. Williamston has added over 150 students since their first top ranking on the state scorecard index three years ago.
