Posted: Updated:
FRANKENMUTH (WJRT) - (04/24/14) - Frankenmuth High School continues to hold its ranks among the best.

A new report puts the Eagles on the list of top five high schools in the state.

There is a special type of chemistry brewing at Frankenmuth High.

"I'm just delighted and proud to be here in Frankenmuth," said teacher Rob Baker.

Faculty and students have come up with an equation that works.

"It says a lot about our students and our families and really the value and education here," said JoLynn Clark, Frankenmuth High School principal.

A system that puts them on the list of the best schools in the state.

"We are ranked number four in the state," Clark said.

A top spot they've been holding for a few years now.

"This is the third year in the row, so in 2012 we were number five, last year we were number three, this year we are number four," Clark said.

Inside Mr. Bakers Engineering class, students are showing you one formula the high school uses to be the best. In this room, students don't just learn with books.

"If you look around and see all he hands on activities to actually be doing what they are learning," Baker said.

Baker says active learning keeps his students attention, and motivates them to learn. And they are retaining the information.

On top of all the honors, the school ranks 245 in the nation for STEM.

"We are very, very proud of that. STEM is Science Technology and Engineering, which is what my physics and engineering class is all about," Baker said.

An exciting accomplishment that didn't come as a complete surprise for everyone.

"Pretty impressed, not surprised though, we've got really good students, and really good faculty," said senior Sheldon Perrou.

Schools were evaluated on overall student performance, state mandated tests and how well they effectively educated minority and disadvantaged students.

The next highest Mid-Michigan school on the list was Grand Blanc High School at number 27.
