Kouts Elementary School is part of a K-12 facility located in the town of Kouts, in Pleasant Township of Porter County, Indiana. The elementary wing is comprised of two additions added to the original structure in 1959 and 1969. In 2000 we completed an extensive renovation program which included art and music rooms, a computer lab, an enlarged media center, and air conditioning. During the summer months of 2005, the building was completely renovated inside, including classrooms, hallways, and restrooms. Again in 2009, additional space was added in the form of seven classrooms, two Large Group Instruction Rooms, an elementary dining room, and an elementary gym. Presently, there are four sections of full-day kindergarten and grade three; and three sections of grades one, two, four, and five. Class sizes range from the mid-teens to the mid-twenties. Beginning with the 1998-99 school year, Kouts School realigned grade levels, and Kouts Elementary School is now a K-5 facility.
Administratively, the Kouts Schools are part of the East Porter County School Corporation which includes Morgan, Pleasant, and Washington Townships in Porter County. Newly reorganized as of January 1, 1994, the school system is administered by a superintendent and a seven-member board. At the local level, Kouts Elementary School has one full-time administrator.
