Academic State Champs

  • New Buffalo Area Schools is a 2018 Academic State Champs School District

    New Buffalo Area Schools was honored on February 13th with a 2018 Academic State Champion School District by Bridge Magazine.

    Only 30 school district statewide received this honor. Those honored are published on Bridge’s website.

    New Buffalo Area Schools and other 2018 Academic State Champs are honored for how much students progress from third to eighth grade, using a Stanford University analysis of more than 500 public school district in Michigan. The research was part of national study of millions of students that measured academic performance and a host of socioeconomic data, from income and family structure to income and family education.

    Bridge Magazine will feature a Compare Your School District Tool so educators and parents can compare student growth with neighboring districts, peers, or really any school district across the state.

    Bridge Magazine welcome educators and parents to wear your Academic State Champ label with pride. The report includes a simple way for anyone in our district to receive free Academic State Champs bumper stickers.

    Congratulation Staff and Students for the hard work and dedication.
