ECSD is very proud that four of our schools have been recognized by the Michigan Department of Education as Reward Schools:
Marine City High School
St. Clair High School
Reward Schools are those which have achieved AYP and were also identified in one of the following ways: 1) Top 5% of schools in the State of Michigan on the Top-to-Bottom list 2) Top 5% of schools in the State of Michigan making the greatest gains in achievement (improvement metric) or 3) "Beating the Odds." Beating the Odds schools are those that are overcoming traditional barriers to student achievement and are outperforming schools with similar risk factors and demographic makeup.
Congratulations to our students, staff and parents for working together and achieving this honor!
Second Trimester students in Monte Iafrate's Biology class collaborated with Visual Arts teacher Jason Stier in exploring our local ecosystem while finding connections between Art and Science. With the help of guest speaker Kathy Johnson from Gregory AD (specialist in diving, underwater art, and videography), students gained a deeper understanding of our local waters while creating a beautiful three-dimensional model of the Lake Huron Food Web.
This collaboration was a prime example of Project-Based learning at Riverview East High School. The project allowed for student-centered learning, collaboration, in-depth inquiry, and real-world applications of what is taught at REHS.
