We moved her, for the schools and what they had to offer. The kids are great, the parents are great and the school is great. I wouldn't have wanted them to go anywhere else.

I'm extremely pleased with Huron High. The teachers are caring, concerned and very easy to talk to. The students are prepared for college. The A/P classes are wonderful and there are multiple activities to keep students active and motivated. This year's graduating class had some phenominal students. They were challenged the entire year and they regularly stepped up to the challenge. I was surprised that so many of them had 4.0 GPA's and higher. This graduating class also received more than scholarship monies than any other class at Huron had ever received. I think this is a direct reflection on the staff at Huron High.

Huron has come along way in improving the quality of our students' education. I have one student who graduate in '09 and another who will graduate in '12.Teachers are easy to communicate with and the administration is one of the most involved I have ever come across. I have worked in many Wayne County school systems and in every building within this district and can attest to their dedication. There is more to a school than a test score and I believe our schools prepare our children for life at college and beyond in the best way possible, they care!

My experience at Huron High School was great! Although it was 11 years ago, I think back and remember my favorite teachers and classes. I was in band and people may make fun of it, but to me it was a family.

We have a great sports program. Currently are boys varsity basketball time is undefeated. Most of our teachers are good and caring. If you attend here you should really try to get Mr. McGuire as a teacher, he is wonderful at his job. He teaches law, government, and AP Government.

I've been in the community for many years, and I have been really pleased with Huron High School. Teachers and administrators seem to genuinely care about their students. Graduates are definitely prepared for college and beyond, and the students attend some of the best colleges in the state (even nationally - Harvard included). I think this is a great school.

This year the school will be going to trimesters and we are getting a new principal, mr. rowe. Ahhh! so much change, but i think it will be a good thing because we get to choose a lot more things that we could last year. i think the only downside to this is that core classes mightbe seperated during the trimesters.this will be my second year at huron high and i hope it is great!

My oldest will be graduating from Huron this year. He has blossomed into a wonderful young man. He was bullied in grade school so I moved him to public school for high school. The school has a zero tolerance policy for bullying and it is enforced! The school recognizes and promotes achievement in academics and the arts as well as sports. Varsity letters are given out for arts and academics, not just sports. The school has a wide selection of interesting classes and opportunities. The school seems to be set up to develop well-rounded students and prepares them well for college and life after high school. Students are even encouraged to participate in community service work. The facilities are great. The library is so inviting and easy to navigate.

AS a parent of an LD child I moved to this distrct so that my child could obtain the best possible education. Needless to say my son is currently mainstreamed and has a GPA over 3.3 at all times. The efforts been made by many in the district have reassured us that our son will succed in life. A special thanks goes out to you all. You know who you are. So pat yourselves on the back you deserve it. Thank you The Wyatt Family

I'm so glad I graduated. I wanted to get out of Huron! I graduated in 2000, and for the most part I had a good experience. This school was great to me though, and so were the teachers. I learned a lot at Huron, but it's almost like it's in a bubble...everything is perfect to the naked eye. The golf team was pretty good.

I attended this school for 4 years and graduated top 10% of my class. I feel the teachers make it a point to try to get the students attention, so they can succeed in life.

Excellent School system. I have 5 children, 2 already graduated, 1 now in 10th, 1 at Renton, and 1 at Miller in the 5th grade. I personally went to a very well known private school, and I feel that the education my children are getting far surpasses what I had the opportunity to learn. My husband is also a graduate of Huron High and graduated with a 4.0. Keep up the great work. I am so proud to have my children in this school system. Thank you so much!

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. Currently, GreatSchools' ratings reflect 2013 MEAP results; ratings will be updated after 2014 Michigan Merit Examination (MME) results are released. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Merit Examination (MME) to assess students in grade 11 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. The MME is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MME test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
