Facilities & Resources

Over the past several years the district has received several grants. These grants have supported staff development, curriculum development, school improvement, assisting students at risk, assistive technology for special needs and technology staff development, curriculum planning , technology support and special grant funded opportunities. 

Arenac Eastern School District is located at 200 Smalley Street in Twining.  It is a K-12 building and the common facilities such as the library, cafeteria, gymnasium are shared by all students and staff. Ample lawns, fields and playgrounds, provide an inviting space for outdoor activities and athletic events surround the campus.  The woods on the perimeter further define the country setting.

The building itself has a long history. The central part is the original structure. That was extended to the north to create added space for the high school. About 1990 an elementary wing and a gym with additional athletic facilities was added. The additions were well planned to give the exterior of the building a uniform appearance with the brickwork.
