Schools Superintendent Says Northville Students Excel

Northville public schools Superintendent Mary Kay Gallagher presented updates on the district's schools at Northville's State of the Community Luncheon.

The district's schools attract businesses to the city and township, said Northville schools Superintendent Mary Kay Gallagher at Northville's State of the Community Luncheon on Wednesday.

Students' ACT, SAT and Advanced Placement test stores are higher than other schools in the area, she said at the luncheon at Meadowbrook Country Club.

Northville High School has also been awarded the honor of being placed on the AP District Honor Roll, Gallagher said. Also, there are 29 National Merit Scholarship competitors this year alone, she said.

Gallagher said students are learning to think creatively and will apply new ways of thinking throughout their lives.

"They'll use these skills," she said, "when they've long forgotten what grade they've gotten in a class or test."

Gallagher also mentioned:

  • the new K-12 standards for math and English
  • Northville High School's transition to become an international baccalaureate (IB) school, which serves juniors and seniors
  • younger students from sixth through tenth grade given opportunity to join a "Middle Years IB Program" 
  • technology updates district-wide through funds from the technology bond
