Our Schools / Our Students
Huron Valley Schools inspires and builds futures one student at a time. The district focuses on Academics, Arts and Athletics. It includes eight elementary schools, three middle schools, two traditional high schools, an alternative high school and an International Baccalaureate program.
HVS also offers educational alternatives and supplemental programs for students with special needs at every grade level.
Unlike many districts, Huron Valley Schools offers a Junior Kindergarten program. The program is free to families with age-eligible children who would benefit from a two-year kindergarten experience and features a play-based learn-by-doing curriculum. Students also participate in art, music and physical education classes.
The Huron Valley School District also offers a building-wide early childhood center that offers a strong foundation for our youngest learners which helps them get ready for the years ahead.
HVS has a 96% graduation rate, with more than $10M worth of academic scholarships given to students. Nearly $1M of those scholarships are offered in Arts, Music and Theater.
We have 120 sports teams offered across our middle and high schools. Nearly 90% of students who go on to compete at the collegiate level receive scholarships.
Huron Valley Schools offers nearly 50 clubs and activities at our middle and high schools. Our music programs, robotics teams, sports teams and extra curricular teams consistently receive state and national recognition.
