Have a tradition of excellence.

Positive Progress.

Michigan City Area Schools boast a long history of doing more with less, but now face funding levels from the state that are just too low. Michigan City Area Schools are facing a financial crisis that threatens not only our students, but also our homes, businesses and community.

During this funding crisis, the School Board, administration, and teachers have worked to reduce costs even more. Cuts totaling $7.4 million annually have been made. More than 140 teaching, support and administrative positions have been eliminated in the last two years.

City's on the Rise!

Michigan City Area Schools are making positive progress and offer opportunity for academic success through college and career programming. Some of the latest accomplishments include:

  • ISTEP+ math scores have increased by 13% and ISTEP+ language arts scores have increased by 16% since 2009.
  • Michigan City High School graduates are currently studying at Harvard, Northwestern, Purdue, Notre Dame, I.U. the Air Force Academy, and many other top tier colleges and universities.
  • The Career and Technical education program offers industry certifications in 9 areas, and Welding was Indiana's CTE Program of the Year in 2013.
  • All of the 8th grade algebra students at Elston and Krueger Middle Schools, and 94% of those at Barker Middle School passed the State of Indiana high school Algebra exam!
  • Lake Hills Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Magnet School is one of only 44 elementary schools nationwide chosen to pilot the Project Lead the Way engineering program.
Students achieve the highest level of success.
