Our Mission

Standish-Sterling Community Schools mission is to provide a quality education through shared responsibility in a safe supportive environment for all students to meet the challenges of a global society.

We are “Committed to Excellence”, and we work hard to make the site a primary source for timely information for all users, and a main gateway for improved communication between parents, teachers, students and other members of our community. 


        COVID-19 Information

The Governor announced today (4/2/2020)  that Michigan schools will remain closed for the balance of the school year.  The Executive Order eliminates face-to-face instruction but gives us some guidance and requirements for continuing learning for the students.   Our staff will be working on the details of what this means for all of our students.  The food distribution program will continue as described below.  All of the buildings are in lock-down, so please don't come to the schools yet.
