SLCS             District History

Welcome to South Lyon Community Schools

South Lyon Community Schools are found in the southwestern corner of Oakland County, Michigan and covers approximately 83 square miles in parts of Oakland, Livingston, and Washtenaw Counties.

South Lyon Community Schools covers an area of approximately 83 square miles with an estimated population base of approximatley 45,500. The District contains areas of three counties (Oakland, Washtenaw & Livingston) and areas of 8 municipalities (City of South Lyon, Lyon Township, City of Novi, City of Wixom, Milford Township, Northfield Township, Salem Township, and Green Oak Township).

The District currently consists of 11 schools: two high schools (grades 9-12), two middle schools (grades 6-8), and seven elementary schools (grades K-5). In addition, the District has an Early Childhood Center, a technology/maintenance/ transportation facility and an administration building. The administration facility, called the City and School Administration Building, which opened in 1998, is shared with the City of South Lyon. We believe it is the first shared school/municipal building in the State of Michigan.

Our school district history goes back to 1834 when a one-room log schoolhouse was built just east of town. Click here to read more.
