Highland Park District and Curriculum
The School District of the City of Highland Park offers students education through three public charter schools. Although Highland Park schools are charter schools, each school’s curriculum aligns with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), as well as the Kent County Collaborative Core Curriculum (KC4). The KC4 meets the Michigan Curriculum Framework (MCF) benchmarks and consists of nearly ten standards per grade level per content. Instruction highlights foundational skills and core subject mastery to prepare students subsequent learning, and college and/or career readiness.
We currently cover the following Highland Park-area school district: School District of the City of Highland Park.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Highland Park District Curriculum
The curriculum specifically focuses on reading and mathematics, per the CCSS and KC4. Upon enrollment, students take a pre-test for reading and mathematics—the STAR Diagnostic Testing Program. This pre-test determines students’ learning and teachers’ instructional objectives. From this portfolio snapshot, students receive a customized plan to gain skills in weak areas. Through a post-test, students demonstrate academic growth. GWCA pulls its science, social studies, physical education, art, and music curricula from the KC4 standards, MCF, National Math-NCTM, and Science AAAS Project 2061. Students also have access to computer technology, Spanish, 21st century technology, and other supplemental resources.
The Highland Park Public School Academy System uses standards-based instruction at all levels. Following the KC4, CCSS, and College and Career Readiness Standards, the system offers students rigorous core instruction necessary to succeed beyond the classroom. The HPRA PreK-8 campus offers students a foundational education in science, social studies, mathematics, English language arts, art, music, and physical education.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Quality Public Education
If a state or district cannot provide its students with quality education, the impact for all citizens is detrimental. It is necessary to provide a fundamental education to all citizens to create an informed electorate and workforce, and to minimize delinquency and poverty. Parents and community members may feel hopeless, but there are many steps they can take to ensure their children receive a quality (and free) education. While organizing and running a charter school is a difficult and complex task, it can be done under supported circumstances. In most educational crises, emergency management groups establish or reorganize charters. Regardless of the situation, parents can do much. Community members should attend meetings, voice opinions, and volunteer to help throughout the year. Providing quality educational opportunities for all students is hard work, but everyone’s well-being rests on the shoulders of the upcoming generation.
