Superintendent's Message

Welcome to the L'Anse Area Schools website. The L'Anse Area Schools is located in Michigan's beautiful Upper Peninsula. We are a K-12 District which includes C.J. Sullivan Elementary School and the L'Anse Jr/Sr High School. We are small enough to care and large enough to offer a full and rewarding curriculum.

The District has implemented a plan to put personal computer devices in the hands of every student. This effort will enable teachers to individualize instruction, offer flexibility, and open new learning experiences to students. The District has installed Wi-Fi throughout the district. We have a modern system complete with filters, fiber optic technology and we have multiple computer labs throughout the school system for class use. Our modern school and public library houses a large variety of books, CD's, DVD's and two computer Kiosks that are available for public use.

Our goal is to prepare students with skills necessary to function in a larger world. To this end, the L'Anse Area Schools has developed a highly skilled and caring professional and support staff. Each student is treated with the respect and attention needed to succeed. Extensive athletic, academic, and other extra-curricular activities are available to students. These activities complement our academic program and serve to offer activities for students that increase their sense of self-worth and inspire them to achieve academically.

Our school is a beehive of activities with ongoing school and public events. Join us when you can and be a part of the lives of our students and children. Welcome to the L'Anse Area Schools, home of the Purple Hornets!
