  Left border of shape

Crawford School is one of the last one-room school houses in Michigan. It is a 17 square mile district located approximately eight miles east of Kalkaska, between Kalkaska and Grayling. Crawford School offers a unique and historical setting and prides itself on student success. Because the teaching staff is comprised of three teachers and a total enrolment of approximately 50 students, they are able to give valuable one-on-one instruction to their students.

Student Retention Rates: As a K-8 school the retention rate remains consistent as students do not drop out of school.

Educators in Excelsior District Number One, Crawford School are committed to the philosophy that all children are capable of learning if they have the appropriately specified learning tasks and a suitable amount of time commensurate with their individual learning rates.

Since research and experience point to the fact that the self-concept influences learning and behavior, educators seek to provide a learning environment which nurtures success in order to influence the self-concept positively.

The successful implementation of this philosophy depends upon specific interaction between educators, parents, students, the school board members, and the community. Sharing the responsibility of teaching and learning is of vital importance. The attitudes and the resulting actions of each of these groups will enable students from this community to achieve a greater degree of fulfillment of human potential and to function successfully and productively in a democratic society.
