On the shores of picturesque Lake Michigan, Ottawa County is home to more than 5,000 acres of county parks, 307 miles of rivers and streams, and two state parks. With easy access to downtown Holland, shopping, dining and recreation are just around the corner. Up for a quick drive? Head to burgeoning downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan or take a day trip to Chicago—less than three hours away. The small town feel paired with ease of access to both green space and the big city make Ottawa County a great place to call home. Beaches, bike trails, Holland State Park and world-renowned festivals like Tulip Time are just a few of the reasons many of our teachers and staff choose to live and work right here in our district.
