The School at Marygrove opened in September 2019 with an inaugural 9th grade class. The new public school has been designed to develop critical thinkers and community-minded citizens who have the skills and knowledge to be makers and leaders in the 21st century. It is one of five examination high schools in the district. DPSCD and the University of Michigan School of Education have co-developed a project- and place-based engineering and design curriculum to help students identify, collaborate and solve complex problems, and participate in the creation of a more just and equitable future.
Detroit has always been one of the most artistic and culturally significant cities, and both the Marygrove Conservancy and the Detroit Office of Arts, Culture and Entrepreneurship (Detroit ACE) aim to support and invest in the city’s creative industry, arts and culture organizations and artists.
The Marygrove Conservancy in partnership with Detroit ACE are conducting a comprehensive census to determine the breadth and depth of Detroit’s creative workforce, making it easier to improve arts and culture programming and secure funding. All members of Detroit’s artist community are invited to complete the online census. Take a few moments to claim your creativity! Take the Detroit Creative Economy Census.
