Welcome to the School Town of Munster!
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the School Town of Munster website.  As you visit each of our school pages and the district page, you will notice very quickly that our schools are recognized for their highly qualified staff and the high performance of our outstanding students.   Our schools have been honored for excellence at the state and national levels.   From an elementary school that is a National Blue Ribbon School to the high school that has an exemplary Advanced Placement program, our students are provided with numerous opportunities to grow, learn and find success in their academic careers in the School Town of Munster.   It is our belief that every student will be educated to develop a global view of our world, and the opportunities that they will have are limitless. 

The School Town of Munster provides many extracurricular opportunities for students to participate at an academic level and an athletic level.  We believe that students should develop leadership skills and be actively involved in our global community.  Students take part in many clubs offered at the high school and middle school.  We provide after school programs in music for our elementary students.  Our student athletes are highly competitive on the sporting fields, but more importantly, in the classroom.  It is our belief that students should be provided a well-rounded education that helps them cultivate their interests.

 I hope that you will check out our Munster Advantage comparison chart and use it when you are looking for a new school home and a new community to live.  I believe that the Munster schools are second to none when it comes to academic and extracurricular opportunities for our students.  I am also very proud to state that our community is one of the most supportive in the State of Indiana when it comes to its schools.  We have a strong group of community and parent volunteers who serve on the Munster Education Foundation, Booster Clubs, PTOs, and in the classrooms.  The support and commitment to have world class schools by our community, administration, teachers and staff sets Munster apart and above other schools.  We are very proud that are focus will always be on helping our students succeed by “Teaching Today for Tomorrow”.

Thank you for visiting the School Town of Munster.

Dr. Jeff Hendrix

Kindergarten Registration and Sign-up For Kindergarten Baseline Assessment

The School Town of Munster will be conducting kindergarten registration on March 11, 2015 for all students who plan to attend during the 2015-2016 school year.  You must register in your home school between the hours of 10:00 am to 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.  Students do not need to attend registration on March 11; however, they will be required to attend on a later date for the Kindergarten Baseline Assessment.

At the time of registration, parents must present a certified/original birth certificate for the child, and a valid driver’s license with the current address. Baptismal and hospital records are not acceptable as proof of birth. At registration, parents will be asked to complete a student information sheet for their child.  Parents will receive information on how to complete registration, residency and health/physical requirements.

New this year, parents will also sign up for an appointment for the Kindergarten Baseline Assessment which will be held on a separate date.  Having accurate registration numbers helps us to plan the best Kindergarten experience for your child.  Additionally, when kindergarten classes are filled in one building, children may have to attend at a different building other than their home school.  It is important to Register Early!!  In order to be eligible to register for Kindergarten, a child must be five years old on or before August 1, 2015.  To register for first grade, a child must be six years old on or before August 1, 2015.
