Edsel Ford High School 2020 College Success Award

We are proud to announce that Edsel Ford High School has received GreatSchools.org’ 2020 College Success Award!

The College Success Award recognizes and celebrates high schools, like ours, that demonstrate excellence in ensuring students are prepared to succeed in college.

Edsel Ford is one of 2,158 schools in 29 states across the country to be honored with the Award, which is based on data indicating how our school prepares students to succeed after high school, including whether they enroll in college, are ready for college-level coursework when they get there, and persist into their second year. See the full list of winners from [state] and watch videos about promising practices at high schools across the country at https://www.greatschools.org/gk/csa-winners/.

We applaud the hard work of the entire Edsel Ford community—including students, parents, teachers, and others that aspire to help our students succeed in college and beyond. Congratulations on receiving the 2020 College Success Award!

10.20.20 District suspends in-school learning labs for now

District suspends in-school learning labs for now.

The district Learning Lab Committee, school nurses, and administrators met Tuesday and decided that in-person learning labs will be inactive as of Wednesday, Oct. 21 for an indefinite time frame.  This comes after concerning news from the Wayne County Health Department. Virtual learning labs will continue, and teachers can voluntarily continue to offer in-school learning labs for those students who wish to take part. 

Wayne County Health Department reported the seven-day average positivity rate has climbed to 4.6 percent as of Tuesday, Oct. 20 and may be headed even higher. (The report excludes Detroit.) In addition, the COVID-19 infection rate within Dearborn is also increasing. Over the last week, the district has also seen an increase in the number of staff and students who were exposed to COVID-19 in the community, not in our schools.    

The decision to make in-school learning labs inactive (except for those who volunteer to come in) was made to maintain a safe school environment and to continue to keep our schools from becoming a source of COVID-19 spread. 

There have been no outbreaks in the Dearborn Public Schools since September 25.  In total since August 1, only three of 29 reported student and staff cases can be tied to spread within the schools.  All other cases involving students or staff on school grounds, the person apparently contracted the virus outside of the school environment.  In addition, a recent report on athletic participation from Dearborn High and Fordson shows  there were a total of 694 student athletes taking part in more than 2,690 hours of contact since August and only 14 cases of COVID-19, all but one coming from outside the school. 

For now, the district will continue with high school PSAT tests scheduled for next Tuesday (Oct. 27) and Thursday (Oct. 29).  Ninth through 11th graders voluntarily signed up to take those tests to evaluate their learning, get targeted assistance through Khan Academy, and as practice for eventually taking the SAT college entrance exam.

The Dearborn Public Schools has set up a special COVID-19 web-page. Please visit
