Academic excellence is crucial in today's society and the City of Dearborn is doing its part in preparing residents and businesses for that standard. Offering educational opportunities ranging from preschool to graduate school is what puts Dearborn at the top of the list of educational institutions.
One of only three K-14 school systems in Michigan, the Dearborn Public Schools serve residents from their earliest years in day-care and preschool programs, throughout grade school and high school, and up to two-year college programs at Henry Ford Community College.
Comprehensive academic and vocational programs are offered in 25 neighborhood schools. Over 13,000 students participate in a curriculum that stresses basic skill development in math and language arts. Experience in art, instrumental and vocal music, physical education, health, science, social studies, and foreign languages is provided.
Dearborn's high schools are accredited by both the University of Michigan and the North Central Association. Seven out of 10 Dearborn graduates go on to college.
Community education programs provide learning opportunities ranging from high school completion and vocational training and retraining to enrichment and recreation. A special senior citizen program offers daytime classes in neighborhood schools. English as a Second Language (ESL) programs offer foreign-born residents the opportunity to study English and citizenship.
The Dearborn Public Schools also offer day care for preschoolers, a developmental preschool program for three- and four-year-olds, and before- and after-school child care for school-age youngsters.
