A great opportunity for parents to learn the advantages of enrolling their children!
Detroit West Preparatory Academy will be holding an open house and ribbon cutting at their new building Thursday, December 19, at 5:30 p.m. and Annual Holiday Program at 6:00 p.m. Guests will tour the building meeting the principal and staff, and learning about the school’s commitment to providing children with all of the tools needed for them to be successful. Following the ribbon cutting ceremony the students will be performing in their annual Holiday Program featuring their dramatic mime, chorus, lyricism, sign language groups and talented dance troupe. The charter school is located at 25940 Grand River Avenue on the corner of Beech Daily Road, in Redford, Michigan.
The school began the process of renovating the former Redford YWCA in the fall of 2012 by purchasing the building. “It has been our dream, to own our own building, for several years. We are providing our students with a first rate, high tech facility that will give them every advantage. We also believe that we can close the achievement gap that has taken root in our community. Our dedicated, state-certified teachers and special programs allow us to support children throughout their elementary years, “said Board President Helen Johnson. The school added seventh grade this fall and plans to add eighth grade next year.
“We are an innovative Pre K through seventh grade school that believes in each child as an individual, that all children can learn, and that all children will succeed and operate by the motto “Love, Laugh, Learn”. We provide our students with a loving environment by surrounding them with teachers and staff that care,” said Principal Thomas White. “It’s important that learning be enjoyable, so we ensure that our classrooms are both fun and engaging. All of this while giving every student the best possible learning experience available.” Detroit West Preparatory Academy offers free tuition, all day kindergarten, breakfast, lunch and dinner programs, affordable latchkey, and bus transportation. Limited spaces are available for kindergarten through seventh grade.
Detroit West Preparatory Academy is managed by CS Partners, a results-driven management firm, made up of highly regarded educators from the traditional and charter school systems.
