Michigan Center high school is a fantastic school. Here, we are one big family and everyone repsects and likes each other. The teachers are so helpful with the students and they explain things the best they can. They make friends with the students instead of just being a mean adult to hand out homework. The assignments are fairly easy but hard at the same time. The school is one big community and when people of Michigan center do great thinga, everyone is proud and we all feel welcome. The sports are one of a kind and we've had all good seasons. The football, basketball, bowling, hockey, cheer, all had good seasons. Now track, softball, baseball, cross country are going big and they're ready for anything thrown at them. Michigan Center has some flaws too. Like we're not the smartest schooland the lunches can be improoved.Thank you for taking the time to see and learn about Michigan Center, a place qhere everyone is welcome. Go Cards!

Michigan Center High School was an all around an amazing educational experience. Every teacher that I had was willing to help me on any courses I had been struggling to understand. They had put in the extra time and made sure that I 100% had understood the lesson they had been teaching me. Each and everyone of them was not only a teacher to me, but a person I could go to whenever I was in deep need of something. I moved to Michigan Center schools at the start of my sophomore year. I had gone to a GPA of a 3.2, to two weeks away from graduating with a 3.9. Michigan Center schools have helped me be the student that I am today and had led me towards going to a University, majoring in a master's degree, Speech Language Pathology.
I love my school! It has a great environment and all the students are very welcoming and open to new students. That is one of the best things about my school, the students are excepting of other students if they maybe a little different. If I had to do it all over again and I could pick a different school I wouldn't change a thing.
