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 steadily increased over the last five years. We currently average 380 students. The ethnic make-up is 87 percent white, 8 percent Hispanic, and 3 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 thirteen years straight and have met AYP criteria for every year since its inception. Morgan Township Elementary has continually been an “A” school designated by the Indiana Department of Education. We also were recently rewarded with an “A” by our federal government guidelines.
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, collect money for heart research, and contribute to the Morgan community by service projects done at each grade level.
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.
