Welcome to Manistee Area Public Schools (MAPS) – Home of the Manistee Chippewas. Each and every day, the students, staff and families aim to be leaders in our school and community. By making positive choices, striving toward personal goals, and supporting each other, we can all make a difference in the world around us.

As leaders, we inspire each other to dream more, learn more, and do more.

Chips Lead!

Our school community was touched by the sudden loss of a student from MMHS. Our staff and students are deeply saddened, and our thoughts and sympathies are with the family.  This loss is sure to raise many emotions, concerns, and questions, especially for our students.

For this reason, we are providing Crisis Support made up of professionals trained to help with the needs of students, parents, and school personnel at difficult times such as this.  At our schools, we have counselors available for any student who may need or want help or any type of assistance surrounding this loss.  We encourage you, as parents, to also feel free to use our resources as well. For assistance, please view the Helping Children Cope with Loss, Death, and Grief, attached below.

Manistee Area Public Schools is committed to providing an environment for our school community to properly cope with this loss. Please do not hesitate to contact the Superintendent’s offices at (231) 723-3521 with any questions, comments or concerns you may have.
