Welcome to Manistee Middle/High School!

Please Note: The indoor walking track is closed at this time. The outdoor track may be used for recreational walking after school hours.

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.

Summer Road Construction

Beginning Tuesday, June 7, 2022, Twelfth Street will be closed to all traffic between Oak Street and Elm Street. They will be reconstructing the road, curbs, and sidewalk. Anyone accessing Manistee Middle High School beginning June 7, will need to enter via Tamarack.

We have confirmation that the concrete crew will be on-site Monday through Thursday, July 25 – 28. The entrance to the Paine Aquatic Center will remain open for this week but will then be closed next week starting July 25 and reopening August 1. Alternative parking will be available in the main lot during that period of time. Those needing handicap parking at the pool should use the gravel access road behind the school building to get to the parking lot. 

We are still asking anyone that is using the practice field on Elm Street to park in the school parking lot. Cars will not be able to use Elm Street during road construction.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation while the City of Manistee works to make improvements to our roadway.
