Morgan Township is located in the northwest corner of Indiana, in Porter County. We are one of three elementary schools in the East Porter County School Corporation. Our enrollment has remained relatively steady at around 315. The ethnic make-up is 94 percent white, 4 percent Hispanic, and 1 percent black or multiracial.
The elementary school is part of a larger complex which also houses a middle school and high school. This unique situation allows us to share teaching staff as well as engage older students as classroom assistants and role models for our students. We greatly benefit from the collaborative nature of this learning environment that provides many extra opportunities for our students including after school tutoring, building-wide read-a-thons, basketball and cheerleading day camps, and joint holiday projects and activities.
In 2013, we had the honor to be designated as a National Blue Ribbon School by the Federal Government. We have been designated as an Indiana Four Star School for ten years straight and have met AYP criteria for every year since its inception.
In addition to academic success, our students are highly motivated to help others. We annually raise money for Riley Children’s Hospital, donate food to the local food pantry, and collect money for heart research, and engage in such projects like the Heifer International Read-to-Feed Program.
As a school, we are dedicated to the whole child. We continue to challenge our students to higher academic achievement and care for our world. We look for our students to truly be productive members of our society.
