Academic Offerings at Whitmore Lake Public Schools Offer a Unique & Personalized Education

At Whitmore Lake Public Schools, the well being of our students is our #1 priority, and their success is extremely important to us. We’re proud of our small population culture, which allows us to get to know each student personally. This means that we can offer exactly what that student needs to succeed. While core classes are important at both the elementary and high school level, we believe our unique elective classes are just as important in helping to personalize the education experience. Facilitating student growth while accommodating personal interests into each individual’s education is what we excel in at Whitmore Lake Public Schools! Our smaller size and inclusive culture fosters a sense of belonging and school pride.

Whitmore Lake Elementary School Academics Encourage Students to Grow
