Spotlight: Vista Earns “A” Grade in Michigan’s Best Public Elementary Schools

Vista Charter Academy earned an “A” grade from the Mackinac Center for Public Policy on their 2019 Michigan Context and Performance (CAP) Report Card. Schools that are “beating the odds” stand out by this measure.
“Beyond raw test scores, the CAP report card helps parents see more clearly what kind of impact their school has on student learning,” said Ben DeGrow, director of education policy.
