Superintendent's Message

                                                 Superintendent Driggs


Welcome to Tri-Central Community Schools home of the Trojans. Tri-Central High School was built in 1970 combining Windfall and Sharpsville Schools. Tri-Central Elementary School was built in 1982. A major remodeling project took place in 1999. The school district is rural and covers 108 square miles in northern Tipton County, hence the former name, Northern Community Schools. We updated our name to Tri-Central Community Schools in 2009. Twelve buses covering 256 miles are driven by caring drivers with excellent safety records and transport many of our students to and from school each day. Tri-Central student enrollments are approximately 300 in grades KG - 5 and 500 in grades 6 - 12. We are located under one roof covering 200,000sqft and 60 acres of land.

Why Tri-Central?

At Tri-Central Community Schools each of our students is more than a number, more than a test score. To some degree, education has become trained to focus on standardized testing and data tracking. This does have a time and place and all of our staff does a great job of balancing teaching with testing. I challenge you to be engaged in our schools to see first-hand the amazing work happening each and every day with all of our students. Success is prevalent throughout our district and measured individually, student by student. Tri-Central puts your child first for safety, education and extracurricular activities.


Recent declarations by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce designated Tri-Central Schools as an Indiana "Best Buy" school. In addition, U.S. News magazine once again selected Tri-Central High School as one of the top 1,300 high schools in the United States and Educational Testing Service (ETS). The Indiana Department of Education has ranked Tri-Central High School 13th highest in the state for the number of students participating in AP classes/tests and their performance on those tests. Offering students choices among 10 AP classes as well as Ivy Tech dual credit classes, we are truly a "Small School with BIG Results."

Our elementary school has the distinction of being one of the only schools in the entire state to receive an accreditation grade of "A" from the Indiana Department of Education the last two years As over 80% of the schools in the state saw their letter grades drop, our elementary went from a "D" to an "A". This happened because of the very hardworking performance of our staff and students.


One of the most important elements of continued success is the support received from parents and community members. We embrace a partnership between teachers, parents and community. Our teachers and administrators are committed to working together to meet the collective needs of our student body and the individual needs of each and every student within our school community. Our parent groups are very, very involved in our school atmosphere. This collaboration has been a big part of the accomplishments that Tri-Central has achieved.

Thanks for visiting our school’s website. We hope you like what you see. Make sure to check out our school video "Why choose Tri-Central". If you have, any questions feel free to contact me at ddriggs@tccs.k12.in.us or (765)963-2585.

They spent several hours touring the plant, learning more about the manufacturing process and workforce development. As part of the visit, Mr. Driggs and our board members worked on the bike assembly line in the Academy to identify how to streamline the manufacturing process. This is the same STEM activity that our elementary students experienced during their visits to the Academy during this school year. Mr. Driggs stated, "It took us two tries to beat the 5th grade time!". Tri-Central is very fortunate to partner with FCA and the Academy. Thank you to Lori Hoback and her team at FCA for the invitation.
