District Mission Statement:
The Board of Education, employees, community, parents, and students believe that all individuals can learn regardless of family background, socio-economic status, race, or gender. We believe that our school’s purpose is to educate all individuals to their maximum potential while fostering positive behavior and attitudes. We accept the responsibility to provide educational opportunities so students may lead productive, meaningful lives.
The Dowagiac Union School District reflects the diverse community it serves, as pride and self-reliance have shaped its rich heritage and continues to develop its future.
The philosophy of continuous improvement is the guiding principle in its management. Professional development of staff and curriculum are the cornerstones of our educational program. A formal curricula process also ensures every aspect of learning is systemically reviewed.
