Welcome to Thornapple Kellogg Schools! We're glad you're here!
We strive to make TK Schools a safe, nurturing, and enriching learning environment for all students where they can enjoy learning, growing and developing positive relationships with caring administrators, teachers and staff.  We strive to make every student feel important, safe and respected as well as challenged in their curriculum.
We believe we have a unique environment filled with positive support from the community, TK families and all of our TK staff - all dedicated to making our school district the very best. We are all working toward the same goal - providing each student who comes through our doors with the best educational experience possible and preparing them to achieve their future goals.
Our TK community is especially committed to our schools and work cooperatively to provide real-world experiences, opportunities and much-needed support. Parental involvement is highly welcomed at all levels. Our middle and high school administrators have regular parent advisory meetings for input and discussion. Our elementary schools are supported by a very active Parent Teacher Organization which is always looking for volunteers.
