Best Public Schools in Zip Code 48076


The 48076 zip code area in Southfield, Michigan is home to 8 schools, including 6 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 1 high school, all part of the Southfield Public School District. While the district as a whole faces challenges, with a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger, a few standout schools in the area demonstrate the potential for academic excellence.

At the top of the list is University High School Academy, which ranks 71 out of 735 Michigan high schools and boasts a 5-star rating. With a 98.3% four-year graduation rate and a 0% dropout rate, this school's test scores significantly outperform the district and state averages, particularly in science, social studies, and SAT performance. Another high-performing school is University Middle School Academy, which ranks 169 out of 883 Michigan middle schools and has a 4-star rating, with strong test scores in English Language Arts and Math.

However, the data also reveals stark disparities in academic performance across the schools in this area. For example, in 3rd grade English Language Arts, MacArthur K8 University Academy had 65.1% proficiency, while Alice M Birney K8 School had only 21.4% proficiency. This disparity is likely linked to the high rates of economic disadvantage, with most schools having a majority of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. Addressing these challenges, including the alarmingly high chronic absenteeism rates at several schools, will be crucial for improving outcomes for all students in the 48076 zip code area.
