It is a great school. I was in the first graduating class. I don't think I would have advanced as far as I did academically without the preparation from Henry F...ord Academy. I received my Ph.D by 30 and that's because my research skills were grounded in me as High school student. By the time I entered Michigan State University, I was very prepared beyond academics. My communication skills, personal development skills, and ability to work with people from different ethic backgrounds and cultures -all came from my experience and exposure at Henry Ford Academy. It is rare you find a charter school principal that is there 20 years. I had the pleasure to go back and teach at Henry Ford Academy for 10 years. As a teacher at the school, I can truly attest the staff are concerned about kids academics. Henry Ford Academy market plan is mainly on word of mouth and that's because people rarely have anything bad to say about this institution, the teachers, or the leadership. The fact parents continue to enroll their younger children into this school says a lot. There is no school like this one. -Class of 2001 graduate. See More

I really didnt enjoy going to HFA. From what i can tell less than 20% of my graduating class actually went on to college after high school and became successfu...l. The ones that did probably weren't prepared or had a lot of work to do. I left in the summer of my softmore year and went to John Glenn where I received endless opportunities. They even paid for me to go to cosmetology school, CNA classes and book keeping courses. I now have 3 degrees bachelor in accounting, international business degree and masters of taxation. I currently own 5 businesses and have made over 6 figures since the age of 25. While HFA has some things to offer. I would never have done as well in life had i not left. Make sure you are considering all aspects of your childs future before sending them to this institution. I think this school is great for children who don't get much cultural exposure or are socially awkward. There is diversity but the quality of the people attending and running the school could be questionable. You absolutely get what you pay for... if you are from Wayne Westland send your child to John Glenn or Wayne Memorial. You will definitely have a better chance. I can guarantee they will have a lot of work to do if they go to HFA. See More

No school is perfect, but I truly believe this High School provided an very special foundation for me due to my individual experiences, an foundation I don't think I would've had at any other high school. They pick their special 100 students very well, for special reasons!...

I graduate from here in 2014. Wonderful place to attend. Great teacher. If I didnt have the help of the principle and all the staff. I don't think I would be at...tending the Art Institute of Michigan. Because of them I am able to graduate this year with my Bachelors in Culinary Management. Thank you all of you See More

My mom wanted me to go to a good high school. She put in the application to the lottery and said a prayer.....I got accepted. Little did she know she did more t...han put in me in a good school. She helped me to be apart of an extraordinary high school that gave me not only the foundation but courage to believe I could do anything I set my mind to. Henry Ford Academy is where I began to evolve into the woman I am today. I was not only prepared for college but the global society! Forever I am grateful for my mother taking a leap of faith for my education. See More

If there is anything HFA has taught me, it's who I really am as a person. The school is always working to improve the opportunities available to the students. C...oming from a student who was previously in public school, I've seen a complete attitude change in myself. Personally, I went from someone who went unnoticed and didn't really like school, to someone who has become better prepared for college and more open-minded by their senior year.

The required 40 hours of community service and 75-hour practicum allowed me to receive scholarships based solely on community involvement, has helped me impress colleges, and even impressed jobs I have applied to. The communication skills and empathy for people that I have gained through my practicum experience, has better prepared me for my future college and career experiences. International exchange programs are also available to the students that offer them a whole new perspective on life. The school has expectations for the students, but it will greatly impact them IF they choose to take advantage of them. Yes, like any high school, they have students who don't realize how helpful these opportunities are, but they will definitely benefit the students if they take them seriously. I would and have recommended this high school to other students. High school is what you make it, and the teachers at HFA truly care about the students more than any other school I have been too. The school wants its students to continue to improve themselves, but also works to encourage students who begin to fall behind.

There is NO student who falls through the cracks here. They try to work with students to make their high school education better at assisting their needs. The teachers are well-aware of the situations going on, even if the students don't think they do. They DO NOT tolerate kids who are disrupting teachers or causing issues with other students. The teachers truly work to help the kids, whether they like it or not. The care the teachers have for other students is nowhere like any other high school in Dearborn. This is a high school; NOTHING is perfect, but my experience there has been a great one.

HFA is an amazing school. It's pretty amazing to go to school at The Henry Ford in Dearborn. The teachers, staff, and students all work together and achieve results. Students are all positive and grow academically and socially in their time here.
