Godwin Heights Public Schools
WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) - Godwin Heights is the top school district in West Michigan, according to the rankings of Bridge Magazine. The educational publication compares district scores on standardized tests to the income level of its students.
The result is a value-added-model score.
Godwin Heights ranks first in West Michigan and second in the state.
"Some of our students come without having that strong foundation. It takes a little bit more to get them there. It's not that our students can't perform, but sometimes it takes them a little bit to get caught up so they're on a level playing field to compete with the other students," says Superintendent Bill Fetterhoff.
Other high ranking West Michigan districts include Mason County Eastern, West Ottawa, and Chippewa Hills.
