    Hiawatha Elementary school has a highly educated and professional staff that is committed to working with students to achieve high academic expectations. The State Department of Education ranked Hiawatha at the 95th percentile, as one of the top rated schools in mid-Michigan. Our highly qualified staff provides a supportive and differentiated curriculum to meet the varying academic needs of our students. Hiawatha staff believes in meeting the needs of the whole child. This includes providing high quality, academic instruction along with establishing and maintaining a caring and nurturing environment. Support staff work closely with teachers to ensure that the goals of the school are met and the needs of students are addressed.
