Our Setting

Middlebury Community Schools serves three townships in northeastern Elkhart County, Indiana, covering 100 square miles.  Quality housing developments and a thriving manufacturing economy have been major factors in the steady growth of the district over the past decades.  The school corporation provides a unique environment with a blend of traditional values and progressive education.  We are conveniently close to major highways, railways and airports, where residents can have access to nearby urban centers of culture, entertainment and higher education. The system has seven schools.  There are 4 elementary schools (grades K-3); an intermediate school (grades 4-5); a middle school (grades 6-8) and a high school (grades 9-12).

With continued and anticipated growth within the Middlebury Community Schools’ district, plans are developing to allow for additional classroom needs.  More space will be needed at every level in the near future.  Multiple demographic studies and facility assessments have been completed to provide decision makers with needed information. With schools providing the foundation for community development combined with the desire to provide our children with appropriate educational opportunities, Middlebury Community Schools is looking to expand in the near future!

Our Structure

The corporation is governed by a five-member elected school board which takes responsibility for educating all students in the district who are capable of learning, regardless of their abilities, race, color, national origin, creed, or handicap.

Our Most Important Educational Task

The Middlebury School Board believes that the school's most important educational task is that of working toward the maximum intellectual and affective development of students in an atmosphere that recognizes the uniqueness of the individual, and provides nurture and humane treatment.
