Spring Lake High School was one of the best high schools I could have gone to in the state of Michigan, or country for that matter. The academics are in the top 1-2% nationwide, with wonderful athletics and extracurricular activities. They have tons of clubs and organizations to join, as well as an ample amount of networking and opportunities available to students to help grow into their future in college or the real world. They have specific programs there that no other schools have and are enriching in one's learning experiences. They have the option for upperclassmen to be a student teacher in elementary classrooms, a large National Honors Society chapter that volunteers consistently, an anti bullying organization, and a diversity club that travels to local Universities and Colleges for seminars twice a year as well as working within the school. The only negative about SLHS is the size. Student body remains small with little diversity in the first place which feeds into cliques.

As a current high school senior, my experience at Spring Lake High School was great. The staff on board are always friendly and supportive and offer students many opportunities to grow as individuals. Particularly, the athletic programs offered are outstanding. There are countless sports offered, and even clubs that make it so effortless to get involved. Through athletics at Spring Lake High School I have grown as a person and as a teammate. I would not trade these friendships that I have made through athletics for the world, and I highly encourage all students to try a sport. Spring Lake High School's Athletics has overall made their school way above average, and will continue to be a highlight among their students lives for years to come.
I have been in Spring Lake Public School for my entire Education. I love so much about Spring Lake, I feel like I get many opportunities every time I walk through their doors. I have been in amazing clubs and learned so much about helping our community. When you go to Spring Lake High school, you really get out of it how much you put in. One thing I would change about Spring Lake would be much more diversity. It is difficult to meet someone who doesn't come from the same background as you. Other than that, I do consider myself a PROUD laker who has been helped a lot through teachers, faculty, and admission throughout my years. I am sad to say I only have one left, but treasure the time I had at my school and am excited to learn more and bigger things.
