Spring Lake Public Schools Reviews

Spring Lake Public Schools is a district full of caring teachers and staff. I went to the schools from kindergarten through my senior year, and I loved every minute of it. The education is one of the best in the state and I was allowed to explore my own interests without feeling judged. There are a ton of creative and inspiring personalities in this district, especially the high school. Everyone wants to be apart of some kind of positive change, and by having it start in this little school and watching it spread to other districts is amazing. I am proud to be an alumni of this school.

My experience with Spring Lake schools as a parent is they care about all students. This website notes a C+ for diversity however diversity isn't always measured by the race of a person. There are religious differences, socio economic, dynamics within living situations. Students here range from being raised by grandparents to working families relocating from job loss searching for work, living with their parents. Parents whom travel for work and may be absent from the home all week. To "traditional" families working 9-5, families with 7am-7pm. No one rating scale can measure all of the circumstances. The gaps between household incomes and the list can go on...wonderful school, wonderful community and yes, not as diverse with race as Muskegon or Grand Rapids or Detroit schools.
Spring Lake is a great place for students who are looking to get positive involvement while in grade school. It has a highly competitive environment in both academics and sports while still maintaining an inviting and fun feel. While most students are supported through academic counsel, gaining special accomadations for learning and other disabilities can be difficult.
