Our school corporation was ranked as the 17th best corporation in the state of Indiana while our high school came in at 24th of over 300 high schools and our middle school came in 38th of over 350 middle schools. Both Howard Elementary School and Northwestern Elementary School were ranked in the top 100 of over 1,150 elementary schools. Visit their website at https://k12.niche.com/
