Vision Statement
Henry Ford High School is committed to preparing our students for success in life after graduation.  Their success will be demonstrated by their competencies across the core curriculum and 21st century workforce qualities and skills. Our graduates will possess the academic and social skills that will allow them to make a positive contribution to society.  They will be competent readers, writers, and problem solvers.  Graduates of Henry Ford High School will be college, military, or workforce ready.

Mission Statement
Henry Ford High School is a grade 9-12 redesign school with a clearly articulated vision and mission.  The administration, faculty, and staff, in partnership with our external redesign partner, parents and community, will successfully educate all children regardless of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, and gender so they can become economically independent, contributing members to our global society.

Beliefs Statement
We believe Henry Ford High School students can and will learn, and through the use of continuous improvement strategies, will demonstrate substantial progress on all standardized measures.  Additionally, we believe:
A good, quality education requires a safe environment.
Good student health promotes effective learning.
Everyone has intrinsic worth, dignity, and deserves respect.
Learning is a lifelong process.
Equitable access to a quality curriculum is a right of all students.
Education is a collaborative responsibility of Henry Ford High School staff, students, parents, and community.

Thanks to Detroit voters approval of a 500.5 million bond project in 2009, Henry Ford High School received 17 million dollars of extensive renovations that include expansion of the student dining area, two technology labs, and a courtyard with wind turbines and solar panels to support green and renewal initiatives of the school.  Climate change study within the ICCARS project will further enhance and support these initiatives and contribute knowledge our students will need to be scientifically literate members of our global society.
