The District

Whiteford Agricultural Schools is located in southwest Monroe and southeast Lenawee counties in Michigan. The district was formed in the mid-1950s after a vote on school consolidation of a number of small school districts in the area. The district currently serves approximately 700 students and maintains two buildings, an elementary K-5 building and a combined Middle School/High School building.

The district has a teaching staff of 40, full and part time support staff of 27 and an administrative staff of 4. One hundred percent (100%) of our teaching staff is considered highly qualified for their teaching assignment.

Whiteford Agricultural Schools offers a strong academic program that prepares our students for their future. The School Accountability Scorecards issued by the Michigan Department of Education shows that Whiteford Agricultural Schools was at the 83.3% for both the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 school years. This means that of the 873 school districts in the State of Michigan, Whiteford performed better than 83.3% of all districts.

In addition, for the both the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 school years, Whiteford High School was designated as a REWARD SCHOOL. This designation was given as the high school was in the top 5% of schools statewide for making the greatest academic progress over the previous four years.
