Welcome to the Crawford AuSable School District ~ 2021-2022

According to US NEWS & WORLD REPORT, Grayling Middle School is ranked 102 out of 1042 Middle Schools!  GMS is in the top 10%!!

US NEWS & WORLD REPORT recently published their first-ever rankings of public middle schools, and the news is good for GMS: Our school placed among the top 30% of middle schools in the state of Michigan, making it a U.S. News Best Middle School.

Less than 30% of the schools earned the right to be called Michigan's Best Middle Schools and use the U.S. News badges as symbols of excellence in education. 

Take a look at what US NEWS & WORLD REPORT published about our school, including its new rankings, by clicking on this link.

More information about U.S. NEWS Best Middle Schools – including methodology, badge eligibility, promotional options, and how to access the rankings – is available on the Best Schools information page.

The CASD Board of Education has begun planning for our next investment in our school community.  In part, our next project will include an effort to convert our middle school building into a middle school campus. To do this, we have requested the Grayling City Council approve a resolution vacating a small portion of Ottawa Street.  For more information, please follow the links below:
