Colon School System

educationColon Community Schools provides an excel­lent education for almost one thousand stu­dents from a district with an area of over one hundred square miles. The school provides pre-school to post secondary opportunities through its three school buildings. Colon Elementary School offers Kindergarten through sixth grade classes along with Michi­gan School Readiness classes for four year aids and special needs classes for 3 year aids through sixth grade. Colon Elementary School was recognized by the State of Michigan for its prestigious “Golden Apple Award” for out­standing state test score improvements. Leonidas School is a basic skills school for kinder­garten through eighth grade. Students focus on Reading, Writing, Math, Science, and Social Stud­ies in multi-age classrooms. Colon Jr./Sr. High School offers some of the best education in St. Joseph County in grades seven through twelve. Students with strong vo­cational interests may pursue their chosen ca­reers while some earn college credit or state/ national recognized certificates while still com­pleting their high school education. Juniors and Seniors may qualify to attend college while still in high school and a few have completed their freshman year of college while still in high school.

Our rural setting and small size offers students a chance to try several opportunities in school or extra curricular offerings that they wouldn’t have an opportunity to try in a larger school climate. New students find the small class sizes and friendly, competent teachers to be very welcoming indeed.

High academic and discipline standards, while stressing self-esteem, school spirit, and citi­zenship are the cornerstone of this institution. Please visit us soon.
