Sanborn Elementary

Our Mission

In partnership with parents and community, Sanborn School will provide a creative learning environment that ensures all students reach their full potential and become caring, responsible citizens.

Sanborn Elementary, one of six elementary buildings in the Alpena Public School District, is located in Ossineke, Michigan near beautiful Lake Huron and the Devil's River. Over 200 students attend Kindergarten through grade five. Sanborn is very proud of its special features, programs, and, most of all, its commitment to the children of the future. We believe knowledge is the key to success.
