Welcome

Welcome to our school! We believe that parent participation is key to student success; our new website is designed to provide parents with all the information they need to be active participants in their student’s education. You will find that the site works just as well on mobile devices as it does on a desktop so you can find information on the go.

Superintendent's Message

Elkhart Community,

The Elkhart community has a rich history of providing an exceptional education for students.  I am proud of our schools and the academic and social achievements that reflect our core values.  We meet children where they are, expose them to a rigorous curriculum, and challenge their limits in a loving, caring and nurturing environment.  At EISD, our students are not mere numbers; every student counts!  They are our most prized possessions; therefore, we surpass common practice to model positive character traits, provide sound choices, and extend unique learning opportunities to build for a bright future.  Our high school students are offered the opportunity to earn college credits and certifications, and they are supported in developing firm plans for success in the military, the general workforce, or in higher education.  When students graduate from EISD, they are prepared for life and have choices and opportunities.
 
As superintendent of schools, I am proud to say that our staff consists of quality educators who go beyond the norm to reach all children.  Our staff members are positive upbeat individuals who proudly maintain their well-established reputation for being the best in the area.  Our students are held to high standards of accountability, discipline, and good citizenship.  These factors ensure a safe and secure learning environment where “Excellence” thrives.    Elkhart ISD believes in the “ELKS” (Excellence, Leadership, Knowledge equals Success).  Our school district is supported by parents, community leaders and ministries.  Together we strive for excellence!
 
Respectfully,
Dr. Lamont Smith
Superintendent of Schools
“Excellence Every Day in Every Way”
