Schools Near Homes in Traverse City, Michigan
One visit to the Traverse City Area Public School’s (TCAPS) colorful website tells you all you need to know about how invested Traverse City schools are in both scholarly excellence and community involvement. In fact, plenty of families have moved to this area specifically for the schools. Despite restrictions imposed by the pandemic, area schools have played valuable roles in maintaining student interest despite changes in teaching protocols while also keeping them safe.
Home to 11 elementary schools, 2 middle schools and 3 high schools (one elementary school is a Montessori academy), home shoppers meeting with Brook Walsh Real Estate associates are eager to know how their kids will fare when switching schools. Planning for the future is a high priority for the Traverse City school system, which is why capital improvement projects remain ongoing.
