Krause Early Learning Center Earns

5-Star Rating from State of Michigan

 

Armada’s Krause Early Learning Center has worked incredibly hard over the last few years to offer more programs and opportunities for our students. Our preschool teachers and aides have added new curriculum components, sought training, and revamped several practices to ensure our youngest learners get off to the best start possible.

This work has paid off as the Early Learning Center has been recognized by the state of Michigan with the highest rating - a fantastic 5 Star Rating!  If you have little ones that are preschool age, there is no better place to start than Krause Elementary’s Early Learning Center. 

There are only 185 preschool programs in the state that have attained the 5-star rating. We are in the top 5% of preschool programs in the state. In order to achieve this rating, programs must follow the Department of Education Early Childhood Standards of Quality for Pre-Kindergarten. 

 

Armada Named AP Honor Roll District

The Armada Area Schools is proud to announce that it has earned the distinction of making the national Advanced Placement Honor Roll for 2019.  Armada was one of only 373 district nationwide and the only Macomb County High School to earn this honor.

Inclusion on the 9th Annual AP District Honor Roll is based on the examination of three years of AP data, from 2016 to 2018, for the following criteria:

  • Increased participation/access to AP by at least 4% in large districts, at least 6% in medium districts, and at least 11% in small districts.
  • Increased or maintained percentage of American Indian/Alaska Native, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander students taking exams and increased or maintained the percentage of American Indian/Alaska Native, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander students scoring 3+ on at least one AP Exam; and
  • Improved performance levels when comparing the percentage of students in 2018 scoring a 3 or higher than those in 2016, unless the district has already attained a performance level at which more than 70% of its AP students are scoring a 3 or higher.

Last year Armada High School had over 300 AP Exams administered to its students and over 64% of these exams resulted in college credit for students.  This resulted in families saving approximately $1.4 million in tuition costs.  This is another reason that Armada has become the top-rated district in Macomb County and the school district of choice for over 500 students.  More information can be found at https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/pdf/ap-district-honor-roll-9th-annual.pdf .
