Points of Pride

  • Our classroom instructional technology facilitates 21st Century methods of learning.
  • Use of a web-based instructional environment which delivers curriculum in a 21st Century format while increasing available resources for students and teachers in and out of school.

It is the policy of the Manistee Area Public Schools to provide an equal opportunity for all students to learn through the curriculum offered in this district

In Manistee Area Public Schools we want all students to become:

  • Responsible citizens who are ethical, productive members of a global society; take responsibility for their own actions and physical well-being; are environmentally conscious; and contribute their time; energies, and talents for the improvement of their community and the quality of life for all.
  • Effective communicators who posses skills in written, visual, and spoken skills.
  • Self-confident individuals who demonstrate a positive self-image and are caring, sensitive and flexible human beings. Life long learners understand that learning is a process, not an event.
