A tradition of excellence! Education is the heart of our community. Boasting northern Michigan’s first International Baccalaureate school, our district consistently ranks as one of Michigan’s A-ranked schools.

• Lakeland Elementary and Mill Creek Elementary: Located in Williamsburg and Elk Rapids, our elementary schools are International Baccalaureate World Candidate Schools for the Primary Years Program. Dedicated to building a culture of caring and learning, our schools are committed to excellence by growing as a learning community through continuous collaboration.

• Cherryland Middle School: The first International Baccalaureate World school in northern Michigan. The IB approach to developing knowledgeable, inquisitive, and caring people who are motivated to succeed supports the district’s tradition of excellence.

• Elk Rapids High School: Where the staff partners with students, parents, and the community to provide a world-class educational experience. More than simply gaining knowledge, Elk Rapids graduates learn to become contributing members of the global society.

• Sunrise Academy: Not everyone takes the same path toward excellence, and Sunrise Academy provides a different way for many students. Including the Sunrise Crafters and one-to-one iPad technology for students, Sunrise Academy makes sure all students have the opportunity to learn and succeed.
