Detroit Lakes, MN (WDAY TV) - A huge honor today for students at Detroit Lakes Middle School: A non-profit education think tank called "MinnCAN" has awarded Detroit Lakes the number one middle school in the state when it comes to performance and test scores for young Native Americans.

The school is also well-known for offering Native American cultural programs and lessons to students.

MinnCAN picked Detroit Lakes as its top school, and plans to share its secret with other schools and policy makers in the state.

Joe Carrier- Detroit Lakes Middle School- Native American Programs: “It needs to be full circle: School, family, extracurricular events, and then the students themselves making good choices.”
