A World-Class Education In A Hometown Setting
Schools are places of possibilities – for learning, for growing, for understanding. Quality education is part of our heritage here in Mayville-Portland. Our earliest settlers created the historically- significant Bruflat Academy and today we’re home to May-Port CG Public Schools and Mayville State University, two award-winning educational systems that provide a safe, nurturing environment and a world-class education to students of all ages from all walks of life.
A Commitment to Excellence
Mayville and Portland partner with nearby Clifford and Galesburg, North Dakota, for K-12 education. Area residents are committed to a strong public school system for their children and have built advanced educational facilities for elementary, middle, and high school students. The result is a school district with about 620 students and 70 faculty and staff. Kids are encouraged to take advantage of our many possibilities: from academics to athletics, from music to speech! Small class and team sizes ensure that everyone gets the attention they deserve.
Personal Service AND Technology
Mayville State University is the nation’s first Tablet PC university, integrating cutting-edge technology into every student’s educational experience. In fact, technology is emphasized throughout the curriculum, making Mayville State University a leader in providing students, faculty, and staff with tools for our technology-driven economy. At the same time, the university’s dedicated faculty and staff create a family-like campus atmosphere where students get outstanding personalized instruction thanks to small class sizes and individual attention. Mayville State University offers traditional and online bachelor degrees to more than 1,000 students.
When you first arrive at Mayville State University, the legendary “Old Main” (dating back to the school’s founding) welcomes you as an iconic landmark of this storied campus. Don’t let the history fool you, though: all campus buildings and residence halls are fitted with high-speed wi-fi so every student can stay connected at all times. For those who value the lifelong lessons of a unique educational experience, Mayville State University has a private college feel that invites community residents for a morning jog or an evening stroll.
