Detroit Achievement Academy

Here are a few from a personal project I’m working on at the Detroit Achievement Academy. This is the first year the DAA opened their doors and great things are already starting to happen. The free charter school is giving kids an option to attend a new school instead of the only option they had where they had some of the lowest test scores in the state of Michigan.
