About Frankenmuth Public Schools.

Frankenmuth Public Schools provide educational opportunities for students in kindergarten through high school.  The 72-square mile district includes all of the City of  Frankenmuth, Frankenmuth Township and parts of Birch Run Township, Blumfield Township and Tuscola Township. The district features a common campus with one high school, a middle school, and an elementary school and is home to about 1210 students (2013 enrollment.) 

The Frankenmuth School District is large enough to offer a complete and strenuous academic program, while small enough to provide for individual attention and opportunities for participation in a variety of activities.  Known throughout the State of Michigan for its high academic standards, the Frankenmuth School District student performance is consistently reflected through state and national testing with average scores that are well "above average." 

Frankenmuth High School was recently recognized by U.S. News and World Report as being the 3rd Best High School in the State of Michigan and the 276th Best School in the Nation!

Strong parent involvement, an experienced school board with vision, a top-notch staff, and tremendous community support contribute to this winning formula.
