First Graduates of Kenowa Hills Middle College - 2015

First Graduates of Kenowa Hills Middle College - 2015

The Board of Education of Kenowa Hills Public Schools is pleased to announce the savings of college expenses valued at $512,126 by the first Kenowa Hills High School/Davenport University Middle College graduating class. The first students scheduled to complete the program this spring have participated in classes valued from $30,361 to $35,076.

From Allison Polkowski, a student who will be graduating in May. “For the past three years, Middle College has impacted me in a way I had never considered. Taking a blended schedule of high school and college classes simultaneously has challenged, driven and progressed me more than many students the same age. I am incredibly confident in the interpersonal, professional and medical skills that I have gained in this period of time. I have also discovered possibilities for future careers with no college debt.”

Coopersville, GRPS broaden horizons with student exchange


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.
