Addison Community Schools is a Class D-sized K-12 educational facility in northwest Lenawee County, Michigan.

History[edit]

Addison Community Schools is located in Addison, Michigan. Addison Community Schools was organized in 1886 under the direction of George Judson Tripp and marked its first official graduation exercises in 1887. Three participated in commencement that year, followed by one in 1888. Recently averaging 70 to 80 graduates each year, Addison's mascot is the Panther, they kept using that mascot for the 1948–49 school year. Prior to that, the school used the nickname Addison Millers, in honor of the village's young factory the flouring mill.

Starting in 2012 the campus will consist of three buildings all connected together that includes a new high school building and newly renovated elementary and middle schools. These buildings are now known as Addison Elementary School (Grades K-5), Addison Middle School (Grades 6-8), and Addison High School (Grades 9-12). As of the 2012–13 school year, the historic "Upper El.", previously the high school from 1925 to 1960 went under in 2009 to save the district money. The district middle and high school principal and superintendent is Steven Guerra. The dean of students position is currently held by Chad VanSickle. The elementary principal position is held by John Williams IV. [1] The school's official colors are red and black.

The school has adopted many academic and extracurricular programs through either opening local chapters of national organizations such as SADD, Key Club International and NHS or through independent creation of school organizations such as the school newspaper.
