Detroit Academy of Arts & Sciences

DAAS is a charter school located in downtown Detroit. Eighty percent of its students are at the poverty line, and 98% qualify for free or reduced lunch. Despite these challenges at home, DAAS strives to provide its students with a safe and inspiring environment. The CEO, Maurice Morton, is very involved with the school and students. He recently helped a student’s mother get a job in the medical field so that they were no longer homeless. Find out more about this great CEO and school, here.
