The Skyline High Experiment



I do think the article should have pointed out that part of the 'experiment' was transfering experienced teachers from both Pioneer and Huron to Skyline. Many of these teachers were very effective at their former schools and undoubtedly contributed greatly to Skyline's success ... and their removal from Pioneer and Huron created a bit of a teaching vacuum at both of those schools. Nevertheless, since 6 Huron 2011 seniors achieved perfect ACT scores I have no doubt that the 'older' Pioneer and Huron high schools will continue to succeed as well. Congrats to all Ann Arbor high school students, you are doing a fine job!

Hi Angry,

If we'd written about every grade, every magnet, and every rule, the result would have had a wikipedia entry, not a magazine article. As Calvin Trillin said many years ago, an article is just a snapshot. Thanks for adding your own snapshot of the dress code and bathrooms...
