Whitmore Lake Elementary School Offers a Unique Education Experience

Whitmore Lake Elementary School offers a unique education experience to its students. With less than 500 students enrolled in Whitmore Lake Elementary School, it’s very easy for teachers to truly understand the children they’re teaching and mentoring. Our elementary school extends the idea of a unique and customized education to courses available outside of the core curriculum. Some of the unique courses we offer include art, music, physical education, and more, like the newest Mandarin Chinese program for Pre-K through 2nd Grade.

Whitmore Lake Elementary School is proud to be ahead of the curve and wants its students to be, too! 5th and 6th Graders will now follow a student-centered schedule based on the Middle and High School schedule. Students will attend school from 7:50am-2:35pm and ride the buses with Middle and High School students, providing a first-hour block dedicated to Project Based Learning with access to all school technology. It’s our goal to provide 5th and 6th graders a more traditional schedule, help ease their transition from Elementary School, and provide more flexibility for students to move within 5th and 6th grade levels according to their strengths.
