Dearborn Heights School District No.7


History of District No 7

Imagine a school district with no schools in it. Sound unlikely? That was the situation for four years in District 7.

When the Dearborn Township section of old District 7 was all that remained after Dearborn became consolidated, Mayfair and Pardee opened as two-room school houses for kindergartners. All remaining students had to be bused to schools in Dearborn.

District 7 as we know it today, formally called Dearborn Heights District 7, is only a remnant of what it used to be. In fact, few districts have had their boundaries changed as often as District 7. Its boundaries when the cities of Dearborn and Fordson merged in 1929 was the Rouge River on the east, Van Born on the south, Telegraph on the west and Wilson and Lawrence on the north. District 8 (Westwood) was west of Telegraph up to Wilson. Districts 2 (Coonville/Fairlane) and 4 (Crestwood) were on the north, District 5 (Henry Ford School District on east and Taylor on the south.

Had three of my children come to school over the years and one thing I can tell you is it’s just got worse over time. My first kid came here back in 1997 and the last one just graduated a year ago. It’s been on a rapid decline ever since school of choice started back in 2002-03. They have done nothing to correct any of the issues parents have with teachers. I personally had to go up there with police to retrieve my kids personal belongings because they find it ok to just take whatever they want from the kids. Not to mention the countless times the issues I’ve had with teachers over the years. Calling kids “morons” or cussing them out because they’re having bad day. No professionalism whatsoever with the staff or their supervisors.

I go to melvindale high school plan to switch here for my next year but melvindale is unfair teachers yell at you because they are having a bad day, and the principal blows you off and says go back to class anytime you need something.

Four years here, 20 years ago. Wow. It flies by. We had an excellent basketball team, solid swim team, good wrestling team, and a horrible football team. At that time in 97, we had the longest losing streak in Michigan history. 32 consecutive games... Still a good time. Mr. Dummer was the best teacher I had.

Simply driving past the school is apauling! Students are rude and inconsiderate, they will literally walk down the middle of the street even though there is a perfectly good sidewalk,they flip passers by off, unless you want your child acting and behaving in a rude manner I defiently urge you not to send your kids here, complete ludicrous! I go to a different school and simply cheering along side the annapolis cheerleaders was a conflict. They shout rude things along with the parents in the stands.
