Trowbridge School of Great Lakes Studies, located closer to Lake Michigan than any other MPS school, offers families a rigorous academic curriculum with a focus on ecological, Great Lakes and freshwater studies. We offer a hands-on approach to science thanks to our computer lab, science lab, butterfly garden and a perennial rain garden with an outdoor classroom. Trowbridge also offers an all day K4 program and extended day activities. Trowbridge has established partnerships with public and private businesses to a variety of scholarly and artistic opportunities.
At Trowbridge we are proud of our safe, comfortable environment, where students are encouraged to be self-confident, independent decision makers. Our large, newly restored windows provide natural light in all of the building’s spacious classrooms, giving students the sense of freedom they need to grow and create. Trowbridge is located only 2.5 blocks from Lake Michigan, making it the closest MPS school to this precious “backyard” resource.
