South Haven Public School



Little is known or published about the early years of South Haven's schools. According to South Haven's website, the first known school was founded by the 1850s. The Hartman School, a part of South Haven Schools, was built around 1906 as an elementary school and, according the Kalamazoo Gazette (April 3, 2006 issue), the 1906 building functioned until June 2005.

According to the Kalamazoo Gazette (May 4, 2011 issue) an attempt was made to renovate a fifty year old high school building known as L.C. Mohnr High School.

The current build exists at 600 Elkenburg, South Haven, Michigan.
