I think Sault Ste. Marie Public Schools prepares each person for their readiness to head off into future career plans. A lot of the teachers there have helped me and made me feel comfortable enough to feel like I'm able to succeed. Being in a small town, I'm pleased to have been apart of a great facility where everyone comes together in anyone's time of need. We were all like a family that sticks together no matter where we go.

Wonderful staff that cares about you and helps you in what it takes to be successful. Area schools often use the career center to immerse themselves in classes like Business Admin, Welding, EMT.
The priorities of administration are completely out of wack. They care more about making money than helping students succeed.
