Mancelona Middle School is a caring and respectful learning community which holds high expectations for all to achieve their personal best. Through our dedicated system of support, we are creating life-long learners who will have a positive impact on the world.  

Teachers, staff, students and parents work together to meet and exceed rigorous academic standards. Students set personal math and reading goals and have embraced "M-Step it Up!" as a learning initiative to develop test-taking strategies and improve assessment outcomes.

Our students enjoy a variety of extra-curricular activities. Our Middle School bands earn high honors at band festival and solo ensemble and student artwork is proudly displayed throughout the school. National Junior Honor Society and Student Council leaders engage their peers in many activities and celebrations. And, Ironmen pride is reflected by the number of boys and girls participating in sports.
