    HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. (WWJ) – Many parents are dragging their kids out of bed this morning and packing their lunches. It’s back to school time.

    WWJ’s City Beat Reporter Vickie Thomas spoke with Cameron Calhoun, a Highland Park student who’s ready to hit the books.

    Calhoun is entering the 10th grade at Highland Park Renaissance High School. He lives in Detroit near a new high school, but his mother believes he’ll get a better education in Highland Park, especially now that it’s a charter school district being run by the Leona Group. Calhoun says he’s seen positive signs of progress.

    “Named a new board for the school, they painted, they cleaning the yards up, they made a greenhouse; cleaning the school up,” Calhoun said.

    He says the school looks a lot better, but unfortunately, many of his friends are not returning to Highland Park.
