My overall experience at Ludington High School was very positive. Ludington is small enough to be able to have one on one time with the teachers, if needed. It’s very important to each of us, as students, to create a network with the teaching staff and be able to utilize their expertise even in the upcoming years as we attend college. Staff is always willing to help or give advise via email if any student needs assistance at anytime throughout their college education. For that we are lucky.
The one thing I would change is the district facilities. The elementary schools, middle school and high school are in desperate need of maintenance. Currently the district is working to get votes to build a new elementary school that houses K-5 and update the middle school and high school. This would provide the opportunity for all students to have the best technology and learning environment to create a positive educational experience in our beautiful town of Ludington.

I transferred to the school from another, newer, and much bigger school, and I consider the staff and material to be on par with my old school, especially considering the stark difference in funding. The teachers were excellent, probably too good for the students from that town.
There were many changes being made the whole time I was attending. The teachers were helpful with answering questions and furthering the educations of the students. They knew where to direct you if they did not know the answer to a question asked of them. The teachers were also open and nice with their students, creating a good working atmosphere. The food could've been better, though there were a variety of options. The administration was also very helpful in readying students for college, whether that was through AP courses offered in school or online, or duel enrolling at the nearby community college.
