Letter From the Superintendent



Welcome, Buccaneers!


At Grand Haven Public Schools, we are proud to be a district of distinction that’s earned national recognition for excellence in academics, athletics and the arts.

We’re pleased to offer students in preschool through 12th grade a superior curriculum at all levels, with an emphasis on Advanced Placement and college-level courses in high school.

This year, our Strategic Plan emphasizes the following:

  • School safety, our push for a new middle school, and other building renovations are among the district’s Foundational Needs.
  • Social and Emotional Wellness for staff and students is an ongoing priority, and we’ll continue to address behavior, trauma and crucial conversations.
  • We’ve invested in many initiatives that support Student Growth and Success including additional staff, professional development and hands-on learning materials.

Of course, we’re also excited about the district’s extracurricular activities and athletics. Please feel free to join us for events throughout the year. Follow us on Facebook @GrandHavenAreaPS or visit ghaps.org for the latest information.

Thank you for your support as we continue in our pursuit of Success For All by offering an exceptional educational experience in a safe, nurturing environment.

Go Bucs!
