At Elkhart Community Schools, we are driven by the Elkhart Promise: Every student is known by name, challenged and supported by highly effective staff, and in partnership with the community, will graduate career/college ready and life ready.

Athletics are often a rallying point for a community and Elkhart is no different. With over 25 high school sports, as well as offerings at the elementary and middle school levels, ECS student-athletes give their all to proudly represent Elkhart. Learn more about ECS Athletics!
Elkhart students have the opportunity to earn a college Associates Degree prior to graduation. ECS currently offers over 30 classes with college credits through Elkhart High School and over 30 CTE programs that offer college credits or certification through the Elkhart Area Career Center. Learn more about our College and Career Readiness.
Just as important as college and career readiness is "life" readiness. In addition to teaching practical courses like personal finance, all ECS schools use a PRIDE rubric that recognizes students' positive behavior in five life-readiness areas: Persistence, Respectfulness, Initiative, Dependability, and Efficiency.
