Welcome to Manistee Middle/High School!
By making positive choices, striving toward personal goals, and supporting each other, we all make a difference in the world around us. We inspire each other to dream more, learn more and do more.
We are equipped with the knowledge and values necessary to become productive and successful citizens of our world. With respect, dedication, and integrity, we work as a community to reach our highest potential.
Based on recommendations from the Student Safety Advisor Council (SSAC), administration and you, the parents, we are making changes to the parking, student pick-up/drop-off and bus loops for the 2019/20 school year. The diagram here illustrates the creation of our new pick-up/drop-off zones, visitor parking, student/general parking and bus area. Please contact us with any questions you may have.
