About Living L'Anse Creuse
L’Anse Creuse is more than just a school district, it is the glue that holds together the four townships of Chesterfield, Clinton, Harrison and Macomb.
We are a family. A community. A lifestyle.
We may have varying demographics and geography, but we have one thing in common: our investment in the future. We know that our children are the voices that carry the tune of the community, and we will continue to provide them with unique opportunities to discover their passion to learn, both inside and outside the classroom.
Living L’Anse Creuse is a fresh new way to share the experiences and achievements of our students, staff members and community members. With this new format, we will highlight compelling stories from throughout L’Anse Creuse on multiple platforms and mediums.
We hope that you enjoy learning all about what it means to be Living L’Anse Creuse and encourage you to share your stories with us.
