Welcome to the heart of Allegan County
and to Allegan Public Schools!
The community of Allegan traces its roots back to the early 1800's. The school system began not long after that in 1845. From its humble beginnings in a one room school house, the goal of the system has been to provide the best public education attainable to the citizens in this community.
The Allegan Public Schools offer a broad educational program for all individuals residing within the district. The four elementary and middle school programs offer a comprehensive K-8 curriculum including computer labs in all five buildings. Secondary students in grades 9-12 have access to a comprehensive curriculum and state-of-the-art technology in a recently renovated and enlarged high school building. A full range of extra-curricular activities is available for all district students. Students can participate in team and individual sports, foreign language clubs and fine arts activities. The recent addition of a state-of-the-art performing arts center and aquatic center have expanded opportunities for our students even further. Our Allegan Adult Education program offers adult and alternative education. Recreational and enrichment experiences for youngsters, as well as adults are also available.
The employees of the Allegan Public Schools are proud of their system and hope that you will share in this pride and their dedication to public education in this community. Please become an active member in your local school's APT, PTO, parent advisory group or booster club.
YOUR PARTICIPATION IS WELCOMED!
