Bingham Recognized by Department of Education for Academic Success
On October 10, 2008, the State of Michigan Department of Education recognized Bingham Arts Academy for “achieving a unique degree of academic success”. A recent review of 2007-08 MEAP test data has shown that Bingham Arts Academy has achieved “over 60% academic proficiency with populations made up of more than 50% free/reduced lunch students”.
“The success of the academy is attributed to the hard work and devotion of all staff members. The staff at Bingham Arts Academy believes that every child can learn if given the right support, environment and tools. We strive for academic excellence and continually modify programs to ensure that increasing student achievement is our primary goal”, stated Sarah Prevo, Chief Administrative Officer, Bingham Arts Academy.
The State of Michigan Department of Education was so impressed with Grand Blanc and Bingham’s extraordinary success; they expressed interest in replicating the academy’s education strategies in other public schools in the state.
