It is the Mission of the Metropolitan School District of Steuben County, a partnership of the Board, staff, parents, and community, to ensure that all students acquire and apply knowledge, skills, processes, and values in order to become successful lifelong learners and contributors to society.
The District stakeholders believe that all students can learn; however, students learn differently. Each student is unique in potential and capabilities and has value. It is the responsibility of the schools to help each student develop his/her own capabilities and potential.
The attitude of the student always affects his/her performance. The District realizes that the family is the student’s first teacher and, as such, is the primary influence in his/her development. The school staff will support and extend the student’s development by providing a safe, nurturing and caring environment, which will enhance confidence and contribute to the student’s success.
Our elementary, middle, and high schools provide comprehensive high quality curriculum that supports individual excellence, creativity, and continuous growth and high achievement for all students.
The design of the Metropolitan School District of Steuben County Curriculum and MAPS content is aligned with the Indiana State Academic Standards and New Common Core Standards for English, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Curriculum is locally designed by “highly qualified” teachers and includes both the state and National Common Core standards aligned assessment practices, research-based programs, resources, and differentiated instruction. Complete curriculum guides are available in each school and the MSD of Steuben County central office.
