    Welcome to the Public Schools of Petoskey!

    Our community has built a wonderful tradition of excellence in teaching and learning along with a fine tradition of excellence in academics, arts, athletics and community service.  We appreciate and embrace the opportunity to work hard for our students each and every day and are fortunate to have dedicated students, a highly qualified staff, administration, Board of Education, parents and community entrusted to providing quality educational programming.

    We are committed to our motto, “A special place for everyone,” and view it as a challenge and expectation toward all we serve.  Making a difference in our students’ lives is the driving force behind every decision that we make and action that we take.

    As you browse our website, we hope you find it to be a useful resource for information whether you are a prospective family, parent, student or community stakeholder.  We look forward to the future with enthusiasm and excitement. We encourage you to join us on our mission to advance the education and skills of all students through active participation, as we strive to be the absolute best school district we are capable of becoming.

    Thank you for your interest and support of the Public Schools of Petoskey.

    -- John P. Scholten, Ed.D., Superintendent
