The shool will only improve if they get rid of the current principal, sp ed department, and revamp the board. The students are being treated so unfairly, that is if the school is still open; which it shouldn't be. I know the school both as a teacher who really cared but because I wouldn't act like the administration staff I was let go and as a parent whos children barely made it out. Thank goodness they had me who taught them the importance of going on to college and things would get better.

Detroit Midtown Academy: The culture of the building is created by the leader. Therefore, the staff acts and performs as the leader allows which is unprofessional, unruly and vendictive. I would be very leary about sending my child to a school that allows the staff to act as negative role models for students.

Mr. Blanton comment is head on. They fire the teachers who really care and only keep the ones who will act as the administration does. The old administration was so much better. These students are our future but you couldn't tell it by this schools standards! How sad, it really started out with great potential to becoming a leading school for those that could not make it at DPS. I'm witness to some of the past students going on to college and really making something of themselves. It's the adminstration and not all of the teachers! The special education department is terrible and needs to be cleaned up starting at the top. The board needs to really see that and some of them need to be replaced.

This is easily the worst school in Detroit. The fired from DPS principal gives her friends and family money for jobs and has "questionable" ties to members of the board. No teacher has ben there more than 3 years and the teachers are instructed to not give homework or zeroes. If you cant read, write and like to fight then DMA is the place for you. The honor roll awaits any one who shows up. Mr. Blanton

As a parent of enrollees, you would have to stay on this school, they have what our children need and or the means of getting it for them. As a parent you're involved in what's going on with your child's education they may succeed at DMA or you'll notice before it's to late to save them and place them some where else. In my opinion the principle and most teachers are to involved in kids stuff as opposed to leading and teaching. Overall, they may be as good as any condersing the price tags their putting on our children bodies in a classroom instead of whats going in their heads. In my opinion, most of the staff is lazy, don't care and most reports to work for a pay check.

I am very happy with DMA, my son has been going there since the 9th grade. I have received several calls from his teachers giving me a progress report on him. This was very encouraging to me. I also like the size of the classrooms, I think this allows for each child to receive individual attention if needed. The only negative thing that I can say about DMA is that my son never has any homework, is this the way high school is now? When I was in high school, I had homework. Overall DMA is a good school with very pleasant professional teachers.

My son started 9th grade at Detroit Midtown Academy this year and it has been great. The school is just what I was looking for when I started searching. The teachers seem to really care. One called last week to tell me about a good test score he recieved. He seems really happy with the school and the friends he has made. But the big reason I brought my son is to give him the small class sizes. So far I am glad I brought my son to the school.

I as a parent was very happy with the principal and staff how they helped my daughter and to ensure that she had the neccessary classes that would benefit my daughter i was very pleased!!! yes, i agree the school is in a odd neighborhood where it is located and the building from the outside is not the prettiest but come on the school is clean and maintained from the inside and where is your child majority of the day inside the buiding? Right! so, i would recommend this school to other parents because they do care about the children's academic success and for what that is worth that is want it all boils down to how the children succeed! :)

This school isn't the right school for a child that wants to be challenge. Everyone passes because everyone is treated like their learning impaired. The curriculum is very slow pace.The Principal & Teacher acts like they receive their degree in special education. The children that attend this school aren't grown the teacher are more interested in their social life then academic goals. My child has went backwards in life as a result of not been challenged. This school is design to operate as a alternative school. My child will no longer attend this school and will be home school.

As a staff member that has been at Lundy for the past 2 semester, I've seen a great improvement to both the student body and staff have greatly improved. I stayed because I'm committed to helping our children no matter what the background is. We (the staff) come early and stay late to ensure the every child receives a fair and quality education. Our test scores are improving, our students are becoming better writers, students who need tutoring ask for it, and parent involvement has improved greatly. If I had to personally rate Lundy, I'd have to give them a four. Our commitment is based on our hearts and love for teaching, not our paychecks!

After reading the other reviews I was a little concerned for my child at Lundy Academy, but after seeing the involvement of the teachers and staff in my child, I knew that I was making a good decision. I know that last year was not the best environment and was thinking about changing schools, but looking at the new staff this year with all that they are tyring to do and the constant attention the teachers and staff are giving not only my child, I am very pleased. Keep up the good work and there is no doubt that we can be a great school.

As a parent, I must say that I am very dissappointed in the service Lundy Academy has provided to the students . The staff and administration needs to develop a new plan for the students. I agree with the parent that stated they have a lot of ambition, but they do not act on it. As a charter school, I dont' feel my child has been given the opportunity to excel there. I am very disappointed withthere performance. Most of the kids seem to have behavioral problems, which intephers with the students that are there to learn.

Lundy is not the best academy high school to enroll children. I agree with the previous parents, that Lundy needs to screen their students better and not just enroll student as a number for funding. Lundy does need to improve, teachers are constantly leaving in the middle of the school year. Yes, please list what type of school Lundy is trying to pursue, because it is not a business/technology school. Most students are extremely bad and have been kicked out of other schools. I enrolled by daughter for the smaller class size not as an alternated high school for bad children. If you know what I know, do not enroll your child.

Lundy has a great new building and is making improvement. As a public school academy, we cannot self select students. We believe in helping all students regardless of background. Keep up the good work as you work to improve student achievement. The students are great at Lundy Academy.

The Marilyn F. Lundy Academy has a long way to go before it can be considered a legitimate high school. The goals set by the school are very ambitious, but in all reality, they are not being accomplished. It is supposed to be an academy of business and technology, but it looks more like an alternative ed high school. The student body is made up of all of the students who are expelled from other schools b/c of discipline problems and a few students who are looking for a school that will help them succeed. This mixture is causing problems. The school needs to decide whether it is going to be an academy of business and technology or a alternative ed high school. There should be more selective screening for admission to Lundy, and this will help them obtain all of the goals they have set.

It is wonderful to have a school of this kind in my neighborhood. I feel it is an honour for my children to attend such a school. My impression of this school was positive on first sight. Now that my chilren attend I know that I made the right choice. I told all my friends and family. They enrolled some of their children too. Thank you Principal, Teachers and staff.
