ECS Elementary Schools and Boundaries

Our fourteen elementary schools are warm, caring, friendly places that are safe for children, families, community and staff. Students in Elkhart learn the foundation of their education through our elementary schools, and begin career and interest exploration. Elementary students are introduced to athletics, band, and orchestra. Students are encouraged to participate in volunteer activities in the community. Our diverse and talented elementary school staff are dedicated to being lifetime learners themselves. As dedicated professionals, they are eager to try new strategies and activities to help students achieve.
