Mary A White Academics
The success of every student is our number one priority. In addition to the traditional subject areas such as math, reading, writing, science and social studies, Grand Haven students become quality producers who understand the importance of excellence. Our students learn to work as team members - applying creative and critical thinking skills – in addition to becoming self-directed learners who understand responsibility to their community and world.
Our students consistently score above county and state averages with authentic opportunities for life-long learning.
In addition, thanks to the support of our community, our elementary students have extensive access to technology that supports the learning environment. Classrooms are equipped with cutting-edge technology that is interwoven into classroom learning; providing students the tools to compete in a global society. There are comprehensive media centers and computer labs to support the learning process in all schools.
Performance and Visual Arts
Performance and visual arts are also an integral part of the elementary school experience. The elementary art show is an impressive showcase of artistic talent, and students are able to study orchestra as early as the fourth grade, and band and choir in the fifth grade.
