  • 94% of 8th graders chose to stay at Dearborn STEM for high school, though all BPS high schools are options for our students.
  • Over the past three years, we have quadrupled the number of rising 9th grade students choosing the Dearborn as a top three choice among open enrollment schools in the first round of BPS admissions.
  • We have cut the Dearborn annual attrition rate by roughly 40% since 2015.
