The Elkhart Difference

When we think about Elkhart, we can think of a thousand reasons why we love living here. Elkhart boasts a low unemployment rate, a beautiful and bustling downtown, year-round activities for kids, over 30 parks and facilities, spectacular riverwalks and river access, museums, botanic gardens, a wide selection of locally-owned businesses and restaurants, and so much more.

But what are we most proud of in Elkhart? Our amazing students. Their kindness, generosity and enthusiasm for learning can be felt in every one of our buildings and throughout our community. Together with parents, and backed by support from the community, we have the responsibility of educating and inspiring Elkhart’s children to be lifelong learners, who create good relationships and achieve responsible, contributing citizenships.

Guests in our schools are treated respectfully – with doors held open, smiles, handshakes and introductions from our students. We hear time and time again “what good kids” we have at our schools. We humbly agree.

Elkhart Community Schools’ administrators not only live in this community, but our children attend our schools. We are committed to the success of every child who walks through our doors, yours and our own.

Here are a few of the ways our students and district are creating The Elkhart Difference:
