My experience at North Central Area schools was an average experience for a rural school in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The classes are very straightforward and one on one. My graduating class size was only twenty six students so everyone gets to know each other well. The school is great if you want your child or children to know everyone and create a strong bond with classmates and the community.
North Central is a very community based school. The teacher make it their job to make sure that everyone succeeds and is prepared for life beyond high school.
