NHA Shines: Stanford Study Shows Our Students Surpass Their Peers by 3.5 Months Each Year
Learn More About Stanford's Study
A recent Stanford study shows NHA partner-school students continue to outperform their traditional public school peers. They do so by gaining nearly three-and-a-half months of additional learning. NHA also earned the new “gap busters” designation for outstanding progress in eliminating learning disparities for minority and poverty students.
We Reach Higher
We focus on every child’s unique needs, abilities, and interests. We set high standards, make expectations clear, personalize teaching, and as a result, our students thrive.
We Build Character
We make moral focus part of every school day. Virtues such as respect, perseverance, and compassion are essential to what kids need to succeed. Students learn the importance of making good decisions and doing the right thing in life.
We Expect More
Our students are taught how to make wise choices, consider consequences, and take responsibility for their actions. Our “no excuses” approach helps kids learn at a young age that strong character is developed through personal responsibility.
We Work Together
Our teachers make a point of being available to discuss your child’s progress. When parents, teachers, and students work together, they form a powerful connection between home and school – a partnership that can change a child’s life.
We Focus on Safety
Students require a safe and orderly place to learn and do their best. At Detroit Merit Charter Academy, safety practices are in place which include:
- Keeping our doors locked - all visitors are required to check in at the office before going into the school.
- We provide safety training to all staff and students.
- Bullying is not tolerated and students are expected to be kind to others and demonstrate respect and courtesy at all times.
