Kazoo School is an extraordinary school. The approach to learning and academics is designed to create a life long love of learning and to inspire creativity. The class sizes are small and there are ample opportunities to dig deep into a subject or activity. Most of all, Kazoo School is a community where children are cared for and parents work together to make the school experience great.

Excellent teachers, small class sizes, and a challenging, creative curriculum--including art, music, Spanish, and daily PE. Also offers a wide range of after-school activities. Teachers and students take full advantage of the adjacent Kleinstuck Nature Preserve for hands-on learning about natural sciences; several field trips a year give students additional exposure to the arts, environment, and community service. Kazoo students regularly are among the top in Michigan and national history and math competitions.
