Welcome to Crystal Lake

Home of the Huskies!

Welcome to the Crystal Lake Elementary home page. We are pleased to have you visit our site. We are a small school with a student population of approximately 250. We take great pride in being a family friendly school where each student is known by name. We are located at the only traffic light in Benzie Count (at the intersection of US-31 and M-115.

We have an active Parent Teacher Connection that supports our school by hosting multiple events during the school year and raising funds to cover the costs of field trips (so that they are free to our students).

We strive to meet each students individual needs.

Crystal Lake is the home of the HUSKIES who are respectful, responsible, safe and ready to learn!
