Superintendent's Message

                                                 Superintendent Driggs


Welcome to Tri-Central Community Schools, home of the Trojans. Tri-Central High School was built in 1970 with the consolidation of Windfall and Sharpsville Schools and the Elementary School was built in 1982. 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 320 in grades KG - 5 and 430 in grades 6 - 12. We are located under one roof covering 200,000 sq. ft. 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. We definitely do not put testing scores as our only goal.  I challenge you to get 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.



     Once again, the Indiana Chamber of Commerce has designated Tri-Central Schools as an Indiana "Best Buy" school. In addition, U.S. News magazine selected Tri-Central High School as one of the top 1,300 high schools in the United States.  Educational Testing Service (ETS) and the Indiana Department of Education has ranked Tri-Central High School in the top 25 Indiana schools for the number of students participating in AP classes/tests and their performance on those tests. The state recently honored Tri-Central staff at an Indianapolis reception. Offering students choices among 10 AP classes as well as Ivy Tech and Indiana University at Kokomo dual credit classes, we are truly a "Small School with BIG Results."



     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 involved in our great 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 [email protected]  or (765)963-2585.


Go Trojans!

Superintendent's COVID Update - 3-18-22
Somewhere around March 13, 2020, I started sending emails to all of our student’s parents every Friday. This was our last day of regular school before COVID forced us to shut down our normal face to face school routines. We have done our best to inform you of the real data and information that we were given. We understand that all of our decisions were not to everyone’s liking. Our board did listen to our parents though and tried to accommodate where we legally could. The Board, administrators, teachers, and staff never lost sight of the two most important factors; the safety of our students and the education of our students. If we ever have to go through this type of thing again, I am sure there will be some things done differently. As a whole though I can only say thank you to all involved including our students and parents on making it through this pandemic in the best possible way that we could.
