So, I don't think this ranking is correct.
Comparing Petoskey (3) and Harbor Springs (7)...Harbor Springs scored higher in every category except "2 year degree" and "certificate", yet they are rated a 7 and Petoskey gets rated a 3? How is that possible?

Mike Wilkinson
Tue, 02/14/2017 - 11:12am

They are in different income groups and the ratings are within those. So Harbor Springs was compared to schools with the least poverty and Petoskey was in the group with the second least. We compared schools that were similar, in terms of poverty, not similar in terms of geography. Schools with less poverty had higher scores, enrollment and progress.

Where's the Bloomfield Hills school district? Not in the all stars, or in the comprehensive list? Is it because the school moved? The Bloomfield Hills High School (old Andover and Lahser High Schools), and also the International Academy? Seems like an incomplete list

Mike Wilkinson

We noted that the International Academy was not included because of how the state reported the data by breaking down students by feeder district. Some were so small that the state suppresses the data making it impossible to aggregate into the whole and make accurate comparisons. However, it would have been a 'champ' if it was included because its scores were easily among the best. Also, changes in districts, like those in Bloomfield Hills, knocked out districts. We looked at grad years 2009, 2010 and 2011. If a school that was open then is closed now, it was not included.

Would be more interesting and certainly more relevant if you had included the ELL/LEP data which can have as significant an impact if not more on the factors you included. That data is readily available from the state.
