A-F Accountability

Welcome to our District!
Comprised of one high school, one middle school (grades 6-8) and three elementary schools (grades K-5), the School Town of Munster enrollment is 4100 students.  STM is one of the original ten school corporations in the state of Indiana  to receive District Accreditation from AdvancED.  Our school district is proud of its nationally recognized academic programs and teams.

Our high school, in a partnership with Purdue University and Ivy Tech, offers 28 dual credit courses as well as an extensive AP and honors curriculum.  In 2010 through 2013 Munster High School made Newsweek’s list of the best high schools in the country.  Both the middle and high school are Blue Ribbon schools with gifted programs in the performing and visual arts; the high school also has a nationally recognized Speech and Debate team, Junior Engineering Technical Society (JETS), and We the People team.  There is an extensive athletic program at the secondary level.  At the elementary level there is a before and after school care program called the Adventure Club.  All elementary schools have full day kindergartens.
Frank Hammond named National Blue Ribbon School


Frank H. Hammond Elementary was named when Secretary of Education Arne Duncan recognized 337 schools as National Blue Ribbon Schools for 2014 based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. These schools demonstrate that all students can achieve to high levels.
