About This School

Continuous improvement is the bedrock of ABT. Our small school environment and low student to teacher ratio enables us to differentiate our instruction and teach students of many learning levels and styles. Our teachers must be innovative and technologically versed, as we use a great deal of technology in our classrooms to help multiply our textbooks and engage our students. Our classrooms are highly interactive, with interactive boards in all classroom, the first such school in the Detroit area. Beyond smart boards, these interactive boards turn our classrooms into learning laboratories and loose our students imaginations. We made AYP this year and we're adding a concentrated science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, program to our curriculum this year for selected students in grades 8-11. We provide excellence here. Come and join us.
Academy for Business and Technology High S is located in Melvindale, MI and is one of 2 schools in Academy For Business And Technology School District. It is a charter school that serves 369 students in grades 6-12.

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 Academy for Business and Technology High S's test results to learn more about school performance.

ABT is a School where your child can learn what he or she needs in order to strive in this ever changing world, and go to college leaving you with a piece of mind. ABT has a staff of caring teachers and School Leaders who are willing to invest in your child; when you speak, they listen.. I like that they care about our children and they encourage the children to make the grade...why wouldn't you want to send your child to a school where they have excellent teachers,  they are making the grade and have a caring staff.........

I love ABT and I am very satisfied with the quality education that my children have received. The staff is very caring and understanding of my child's needs. I couldn't have chosen a better place for my children. I would highly recommend any parent to send their children to ABT for a quality education in preparation for college and beyond. Children with special needs are welcomed.
