• Welcome to Mackenzie Elementary – Middle School programs section. Here we offer several programs that are hands-on and keep our students engaged in learning and socialization. Programs keep gifted students committed to creativity and achievement for a lifetime. Our educational programs for gifted students teach a love of learning and the knowledge and skills for how to learn. They prevent early dropouts and support long-term career success. Along with athletics our students are overseen by some of the greatest minds not only Detroit, but the state of Michigan has to offer. Most programs are year-round within the school year, and happen to be seasonal but still are engaging, intuitive, and versatile for our scholars.
