Highly academically motivated teachers and students. Situated just north of the Grand River, 20 minutes from Lake Michigan. Division 2, less than 900 students, variety of clubs and extracurricular activities. Closest city is Grand Rapids to the east. Ample parking, great community fitness and aquatic center connected stage left to the high school. A bit of a more so well to do uppity community, I dislike how some students do unlawful happenings in the restrooms.
At Spring Lake High School students are given the opportunity to succeed. While people can be very similar and we tend to live in a little bubble it can be hard to set yourself apart from others. Due to money differences than many others in my area, it is hard to keep up with all of the social "norms". In Spring Lake, in general, it is hard to be surrounded by people who all have money and do not see the value in working hard to earn things.
