Exceptional Opportunities for all!

Our facilities recently renovated for state-of-the-art learning, include seven elementary schools, two middle schools, two high schools, and one alternative education school serving 7,196 students.

The preparation and success of our students in our global society depend not only on how well they do in school but also on their exposure to a wide range of academic programs and extra-curricular activities. We are pleased to provide a wide array of these opportunities. We continuously review our instruction, practices, and services in order to respond to the needs of our students and parents – from our preschool program right up through high school.

In addition to preschool, Bay City Schools offer programs such as Gifted and Talented, dual enrollment with Delta College, Early College, arts and music, special education, co-op education, foreign language, alternative education, vocational education programs, Indian Education programs, and many after-school programs and student clubs and organizations as well as athletic programs beginning in elementary all the way up to our two Class A high schools.
