Dear Maire Community,

                                   Welcome to Maire Elementary School!  Located in the Village of Grosse Pointe, and established in                         1936, our school has a long-standing tradition of excellence in   education. Maire School is renown in the                            Grosse Pointe School District for its outstanding educational staff and dynamic parent organization (PTO.)  This                  collaborative partnership ensures an optimal learning environment for all of the school’s 345 students. Over the                     years, Maire has consistently ranked at the      highest levels of achievement in the State of Michigan and was                      awarded the U.S. Department of Education National Blue Ribbon School Award in 2017.

              Maire School has a rigorous curriculum that challenges students to think critically and problem-solve.  Teachers                     utilize technology and other differentiated            instructional practices to meet the needs of all learners.  Using                   the workshop model, our teachers provide a variety of instructional models to tailor instruction at                                          each student’s level.  

                In addition to academics, Maire offers a variety of programs to develop well-rounded and compassionate                             global citizens.  Our Green Team has earned us “Evergreen status” from the State of Michigan for our                                    commitment to helping our planet. Our students engage in a Positive Behavior System to maintain a respectful,                   friendly and supportive social and emotional climate.  Enrichment learning opportunities are numerous, and                          include Choir, Instrumental Music, Student Council, Safety and Service positions, Scouting and Knitting, along                       with lunch clubs for ceramics, gardening and science.

               Maire School’s Diversity Committee focuses on projects and education for our stakeholders to enhance our                            school’s learning culture, as well as supporting parents throughout the district. We are welcoming and inclusive                   for ALL Maire students and families.

              I invite you to contact me if you have questions about Maire Elementary School.  We are proud of our                                  achievements and welcome opportunities to promote our school!
