Welcome to Harbor Springs Middle School

Dear Harbor Springs Middle School Parents and Community,

On behalf of the faculty and staff of Harbor Springs Middle School, I am pleased to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year.   We look forward to helping your child grow and discover their talents, expand their academic knowledge, and ultimately become equipped for the transition to Harbor Springs High School. We are excited for the opportunity to work with your child on their educational endeavors.

Harbor Springs Middle School offers a wide range of academic and extracurricular programs for students to explore as they prepare for the rigors of high school and we appreciate the sustained support provided by the parents, community members, and local businesses. We pledge to continue to work hard to make our academic and extracurricular programs even stronger to ensure our students are successful and prepared for the next steps in their academic career.

If you have questions, comments, or recommendations, you may contact me directly at
