  • MCSC Needs to Hear From You!


    Earlier this year, MCSC embarked on a process to set a vision for our school corporation and develop a plan of action to move us toward that vision.  With the help of M2 Communications, we held conversations with students, educators, parents, and community members and conducted a community wide survey to gather information to support the development of the vision and plan.  A group of 25 (selected from over 80 applicants) MCSC students, educators, parents, and community members met over the spring to review and analyze the findings of those conversations and survey and develop a draft plan.  Also called a strategic plan, this document includes a vision statement, mission statement, and set of priorities for MCSC going forward.


    We now need to hear from broader community again.  Please read the draft document and give us any comments you have using the Google Form found here.  The document and Google Form will be available May 18th –  May 22nd (at 9:00 am). 


    The strategic plan will be finalized and voted on by the Board of Education in June and the Administration will make plans over the summer to begin implementation this fall.


    Thanks to everyone in our community who has already supported the strategic planning process and to those who will provide comments on the draft document.  Working together, we will ensure all of our students succeed.

  •  Support the Merrillville Community School Corporation
    On behalf of the 6700 students and 800 staff members of the Merrillville Community Schools,    I welcome you to our school corporation's website. The Pirate Community is rich in diversity which has added to the outstanding educational environment that is evident in every one of our 8 schools (5 Elementary, 1 Intermediate, 1 Middle, and 1 High School). 

    We are the recipient of several State and National awards:

    • Merrillville High School: International Center for Leadership in Education Model School,  Coalition of Schools Educating Boys of Color (COSBOC) Model School, and US News and World Reports Bronze Medalist
    • Fieler Elementary and Pierce Middle Schools:  PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports) Indiana pilot and Model Schools
    • Salk Elementary: 2013 US Department of Education Blue Ribbon School, Title 1 Distinguished School, and COSBOC model school

    Merrillville High School is the only diverse high school of its size in Indiana who has been graded an "A" continuously for the last three years. 

    Our curriculum is rich in its rigor regardless of grade or content area.  Balanced Literacy, English/Language Arts, Inquiry Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, ISTEM courses (Science, Math, and Technology), Industrial Technology, Business, Physical Education and Health, World Languages, Honors and  Advanced  Placement courses, all work together with our rich co and extra curricular activities to provide a well-rounded education to both our collegiate and non-collegiate bound students.  Our graduation rate of over 93% and high percentages of students passing the State's Accountability Tests (ISTEP+ and ECA) allow bright futures for our students.

    Merrillville’s business and community partnerships provide opportunities for our students to gain real life work internship experiences in local health care facilities, car dealerships, attorney offices, and the like. Each year we celebrate our student interns alongside those that have mentored our students.  We are also proud of the large number of awards and scholarships that graduating classes after graduating class receive to the Armed Services and Universities across the country.

    We invite you to be part of the Merrillville Community Schools Family and learn even more about The Merrillville Advantage.
