COOPERSVILLE, Mich, (WZZM) -- We count on our schools to help prepare our kids, not just for college, but also for life. And sometimes the best preparation has nothing to do with tests or grades.
Two West Michigan schools specialize in that curriculum. 25 students from Grand Rapids Innovation High School and Coopersville High School each spent time at the others' school, learning about their similarities and differences.
On a recent cold, February morning, the most interesting thing in class at Grand Rapids Innovation High School isn't the course work. And that is the primary purpose for this experiment in diversity.
The only item on the syllabus: get to know each other.
