Welcome to Dearborn Heights School District No. 7!

If you are searching for a quality school district with caring, dedicated staff members and a safe, structured, supportive learning environment, your search is over! D7 is large enough to be able to offer a wide range of programs and opportunities, but small enough to provide individualized attention and support. We know our students, their needs and their goals and we work to meet them in a caring, professional way.

District No. 7 is a solid-performing district with active parents who love their schools.  We offer both a college-bound curriculum and a strong vocational education program to meet the needs of ALL our students.   Our goal that every student achieves - reminds us that we must work together to promote students with a strong academic foundation and the skills needed in today’s rapidly changing global economy.

If you would like a personal tour, please call any of our principals.  They are proud of their schools and will be happy to introduce you and your child to the wonderful world of learning that takes place here every day.


Accreditation Status
All D7 elementary and secondary schools made Adequate Yearly Progress the last three years. The Federal No Child Left Behind Act requires school districts to monitor student achievement results. The goal is for all children to meet or exceed state assessment standards in reading and math by the year 2014. Based on 2010-11 K-8 test results, all schools in the District are making adequate yearly progress toward that goal.


The school improvement committee developed three goals to enhance student learning:

1) All D7 students will increase their proficiency in Language Arts
2) All D7 students will be proficient in Mathematics
3) All D7 students will be proficient in Science
4) All D7 students will increase their proficiency in Social Studies
Average Class Size for 2012- 2013
Grades K -5:  25 Students per class
Grades 6 -12:  23 Students per class

In order for schools to meet the adequate yearly progress requirements of NCLB, each building must continually increase the number of students who meet or exceed state standards. Additionally, making AYP requires that four subpopulations (economically disabled, special education, and Limited English Proficient students) increase their student achievement data. For the 2011-12 MEAP and MME/ACT test results, all six schools in the District are making AYP as defined by the Federal No Child Left Behind Act.
