My absolutely wonderful student teaching assignment, as it turns out, took place at Northville High School, Northville, Michigan. Northville High School (NHS) is situated on top of a hill which also acts as the highest point in Northville (I view this as kind of symbolic, because education is most important, and needs to be viewed as such--thus, NHS sits as a symbolic point in Northville). The community of Northville itself is a very conservative, tight-knit, attractive community that takes tremendous pride in the happenings and going-on's of its' only secondary school. The amount of support felt by the community is quite conducive to a 1 positive learning environment, which is further supported in that Northville is well-renowned for it's excellent educational facility with consistent above average tests scores. Just recently, it was reported in the Detroit Free Press that the State of Michigan declared NHS one of the top 15 schools in Michigan--secondary, middle and elementary schools included.
