This school is great for what it has been designed for. A chance for student to graduate on time with dignity.

This school is a parent's dream. The entire staff is dedicated to the success of your child. SRAC provides a smaller environment, different modes of learning and great communications w/student/parents/teachers. If your child is lagging behind in school for whatever reason, he/she can get it together and turn things around @ SRAC. Old principal was good; new principal is even better, success is the only option!

My daughter went to Arthur Ashe for one year. It was so nice, I kept her there for a second year. It was like a private school in a public school system. The effect was more than optimal. I love the staff, and their committment to the school. The principal is a true leader, respected by students, teachers, and parents.

I went to SRAC in the 8th grade. When I came in my grade point average was low. Now since i have got that one on one attention and support I needed I was able to raise my GPA.

Southfield Regional Academic Campus - SRAC has one of the only extended day programs in the nation for Alternative Education students. Through the strong leadership of the principal (Mr. Earl Dixon) we have been able to attract and graduate students that would not been able to survive elsewhere. The majority of our students are not placed here but choose to come here, for the smaller class size and more personalized attention. Statistically (raw data and percentage-wise) speaking, we have fewer behavior problems than any school in the district and possibly most in the county.This combined with the fact that we have the highest rate of parental involvement in the district makes us a model for educating children. We must remember the federal mandate that No Child will be Left Behind. These children who were left behind or opted out, now have a place where they can not only survive but thrive.

The Southfield Regional Academic Campus (SRAC), formerly known as Arthur Ashe Acdemy, is saving the academic lives of many Southfield Public School students. Learners Excelling Through Afternoon Programs (LEAP) enable students to accelerate their credits by attending school for afternoon and evening classes. LEAP students volunteer to attend SRAC and there's a waiting list for LEAP enrollment! Most LEAP students are former Southfield High School and Southfield-Lathrup High School students. Typically, LEAP students are students that lack high school credits to graduate on time. LEAP has made it possible for a great number of students to graduate on time, thus, avoiding dropping out of school. SRAC deserves to heralded, not berated! Any parent wishing to visit the school to get a first-hand view of the school and programs should visit and not believe the negative perceptions that prevail. SRAC's administration, support staff and teachers are working to 'save lives!' A Positive Parent

This is a school of great potential if it had great leadship. The unaccountable acts of violence in the school and with the children off grounds are appauling and totally out of control. The same repeated offenders are able to pull the quality of education to its lowest. If you know you can do something and the ramifications behind that are minimal to nothing, then why not continue to do so if you are always welcomed back. The understanding is that most of the students there are put of the other surrounding Southfield schools. The displine at this point should be high! The is no lesson learned if none given. There has to be a better program in place for these kids.
