Tecumseh Public School District services an area of approximately 80 square miles and includes the City of Tecumseh and parts of the Townships of Adrian, Clinton, Franklin, Macon, Raisin, Ridgeway and Tecumseh.
The Tecumseh School District is located in southeastern Michigan within Lenawee County, 25 miles south of Ann Arbor and 30 miles north of Toledo, Ohio, and has an approximate student population of 3,300 students.
Tecumseh Schools are emerging as a leader in the county in educational innovation. With strong support from the Lenawee Great Start Collaborative and the Lenawee Intermediate School District (LISD), major strides are being taken toward the goal of creating a school district which truly prepares all of its students for a productive and meaningful life in the new millennium.
The Tecumseh Public School system was excited when they opened the doors to a new $33,000,000 high school for the 2001-2002 school year.
This upgraded facility will allow Tecumseh students the opportunity to be better prepared for college and the workforce in a global society.
Proximity to institutions of higher education is also a noteworthy strength of the Tecumseh area. The University of Michigan, University of Toledo, Eastern Michigan University, Adrian College, Siena Heights University, Washtenaw Community College, Monroe Community College and Cleary College are all within a 35 mile radius of the community. Jackson Community College, a strong partner with the Tecumseh School District, offers classes both in Tecumseh and neighboring Adrian. *
