Spring Lake Public Schools Reviews

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.
Review Spring Lake Public Schools
Spring Lake Public Schools is a medium to high vigor school in all areas. The high school is focused on creating students who can think critically and maintain high motivation throughout all four years. Because of its focus on acedemics, its students are competitive, not always necessarily with each other but with themselves. The school does need some students to bring the spirit and fun back into the student life I.e. Competitions, homecoming, games etc. Though it is high competition and can be stressful at times, I believe that I am going to be immensely prepared for what college is to bring.
My experience at Spring Lake has been outstanding. The staff and my peers have never failed to make sure that I am surrounded by people striving for success. I've never felt that my education was put on the backburner or that there was anything more important than it while in school. Spring Lake also offers a variety of different sports, clubs, and extracurriculars, which have helped me grow and step outside of my comfort zone. Spring Lake Public Schools has been a place that has challenged me, comforted me, and set me up for a successful future.
