From The Principal

I am proud to announce that Henry Ford II High School is still among the highest performing schools in Macomb County. Our SAT composite score was a 1067.5. The state has transitioned from the ACT to the SAT and I am proud of the hard work of our students and dedication of our staff to implement the new assessment system. Our goal is to make every student college ready by earning a score of 480 on the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing and a 530 on the Math sections of the SAT. We are over half-way to our goal and as a staff we are always looking for new strategies and activities to help all students learn. 

Last year we had 747 AP tests taken.  I am pleased to announce that we had more students taking AP classes than the previous year and 366 of our students earned college credit by scoring a 3, 4, or 5 on the test. This score is also up from the
previous year. More students taking AP, means more students earning college
credit, showing that we offer a range of AP classes for all students. Students who take an AP class and earn a 3, 4, or 5 are five times more likely to graduate from college than their counter parts who didn’t take an AP class. The data is clear, if we
push kids to take an AP class, they can pass it and earn college credit making a
student college ready as they graduate. The PSAT-NMSQT test date for juniors is October 14, 2017. This test helps to identify students that may qualify for National Merit Scholarships.

Our Vision
All students will be college ready as measured by the ACT College Readiness Benchmarks by the time they graduate. 

Our Mission
​To involve family, school, and community in the education of students through a supportive environment and stimulating curriculum.
