Is your school among the worst-performing in Michigan?

The State School Reform Office has released the list of Michigan schools that performed in the bottom 5% academically in 2015, based on the results of the state's tough exam, the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress.

More than 120 schools in Michigan are on the list. Of them, 47 are in the Detroit Public Schools Community District.

The list released today  comes with high stakes: The reform office has indicated that it will use the schools on this list, the list published for 2014 and an upcoming list for 2016to determine whether it will force the closure of chronically low-performing schools.

Below is the list, including the name of the school and the district where the school is located. The year indicates what year the school was first identified as a priority school. Forty-seven of the schools have never been identified before.

Traditional public schools are listed first, then charters, then schools that are on the list but now closed.
