More Choice and One-of-a-Kind Options at L’Anse Creuse
Choosing L’Anse Creuse Public Schools for your student(s) is the first step toward a comprehensive educational program that is research-based, founded on the principles of Best Practice and national state curricular standards. Programs designed to meet the individual and unique needs of children, meaningful learning experiences and powerful partnerships with parents and community enable every child to develop his or her potential.
Parents can begin their child’s academic future at L’Anse Creuse in Kindergarten. Additional support services and childcare options are available to all students. The L’Anse Creuse Schools of Choice program is open to students entering K-10.
Students within the L’Anse Creuse district may take advantage of some of the most unique offerings available in Macomb County. Beginning in kindergarten, students may be eligible for the expanded full-day program offered in each of its 10 elementary schools (based on available seats). The passage of a 10-year bond will enable students to learn in state-of-the-art facilities, including the construction of three new buildings. Every school building will receive upgrades in facility and technology. What we want parents to understand is that kindergarten is the doorway to programs not available to students in all other Macomb County schools. As students progress in their education, they can look forward to taking authentic courses in that fully prepare them for college or other post-secondary opportunities.
Lastly, high school students have niche programs available including a new Math/Science/Technology Center and Performing Arts Center that opened in the 2006-2007 school year. Very few districts have such a unique building as the Pankow Center where students can take high level math, science, technology, career & technical, and performing arts courses. L’Anse Creuse has all of these programs and more.
Once a student is accepted into L’Anse Creuse, they may remain a student through graduation as long as they reside in Macomb County and do not break enrollment.
The decision you make today, leads to the success of your student tomorrow. For specific building questions, please select the school from the blue Schools tab above to see the school your student may attend.
