The Big Bay de Noc School is a consolidated Class D, rural PreK-12 one-building school district. Currently our student population is approximately 175 students with an average class size of 15 students. Our school sits along the shores of Lake Michigan on the eastern edge of Delta County in the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Big Bay de Noc School operates under the Delta Schoolcraft Intermediate School District www.dsisd.ne t located in Escanaba, Michigan.

The Big Bay de Noc School is a central hub for the surrounding communities. The people in these communities take great pride in their school and give meaning to the phrase a “community owned” school. The surrounding townships have suppported and renewed a 10 Year Sinking Fund Millage 3 times throughout the years and is currently in the 3rd revision. The purpose of such a millage is to secure funding for building improvements without incurring long term debt and using general fund monies needed for school operation. Since the inception of this millage, the entire school facility has received everything from small scale remodeling projects such as new lockers, tile flooring, windows, and ceiling tiles, to the large scale projects like state of the art science labs, a total refurbishment of the entire elementary wing and a completely redesigned entry to meet the needs of a secure, safe and locked campus.
