About This School

Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Detroit Merit Charter Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

Detroit Merit Charter Academy Reviews

By , a Parent on

My daughter attended Merit Academy when it first opened. She was a third grader at that time. The former principal Ms. Bisner was an excellent principal. She knew every parent and student by name. The teachers at Merit were also excellent. My daughter says today she wished Merit would go to the 12th grade.

The students were taught and prepped for all the required tests. I tell all my friends about the quality education their children can get at Merit. I used to speak so highly of Merit people thought that my daughter was in private school. The curriculum is at that level. You can get the same quality of education at Merit that you would get at any private or Grosse Pointe school.
