The teachers and faculty are so committed to the students. They give 110% to provide resources and individualized instruction to every student. The community involvement is another huge factor in the district's success. The school reaches out to everyone to share their knowledge and talents with the kids. The physical facilities need some updating but with the recent passage if the sinking fund, that will now be possible. Love our little district!

Algonac Jr/Sr High is an institution that guides every student to reach their full potential. The courses are challenging and prepare us for whatever path we choose. The instructors and faculty are more compassionate, intelligent and honorable than imaginable. I highly recommend Algonac Jr/Sr High to all those who desire to be their very, very best!
Algonac community schools have one of the closest communities I have seen. I always feel at home when I go to school, and have felt that way for the passed four years. My school offers so many opportunities and lets the students put together what they please to feel comfortable and voice their opinions. The building has many problems, but the outstanding sports programs, college readiness steps, and teachers make up for it greatly.
