Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Michigan City District Curriculum
Two state-of-the-art elementary schools, Lake Hills and Pine, opened in 2009. Both buildings now serve students as magnet schools, Lake Hills as a magnet school for Science, Engineering, Technology and Math, and Pine as a magnet school for the Visual and Performing Arts. Krueger Middle School has transformed its 100-acre campus into an Outdoor Environmental Science Center. Working with the Michigan City Forester, Purdue University North Central, Save the Dunes, the LaPorte County Soil and Water Conservation District, developed a curriculum that exceeds academic standards.
Several major grants, including two Indiana Coastal Grants, have funded the creation of two trail systems and a savanna prairie, and a wetlands restoration project is currently under way. Teaching and learning is centered on hands-on experiences, and both core subjects and rotation classes are conducted with an environmental focus, using inquiry-based techniques. view all Michigan City tutors

Chalk Talk: College Prep
Preparing your child to attend college should not begin in the student’s junior or senior year of college. Instead, parents should begin talking about college attendance as early as primary school. There are many ways a parent can support the child’s pursuit of a college education; but the following tips help to lay the groundwork. Almost every community has some access to community and/or university campuses. Take your child to one of your choosing and wander through buildings and facilities. Getting comfortable in a college setting can begin at a very early age. Sign your child up to attend workshops and other learning and athletic opportunities offered by universities and open to the public. This helps cement the idea of transitioning from the public education setting to college.
